NCP leader Jitendra Awhad calls Ram non-vegetarian, sparks row

NCP leader Jitendra Awhad has sparked a controversy after saying that Hindu god Ram was a non-vegetarian. He also called Ram a Bahujan.

Awhad made the comments while addressing an event in Maharashtra's Shirdi on Wednesday.

"Lord Ram belongs to us, Bahujans. He used to hunt and eat animals. He is a Bahujan. They are trying to make everyone a vegetarian by giving Lord Ram's example. But Lord Ram was not a vegetarian, he was a non-vegetarian. A person who has stayed in the forest for 14 years - where will he go to find vegetarian food?"

Acharya Satyendra Das, the chief priest of the Shri Ram Janambhoomi Teerth Kshetra slammed Awhad and called him a liar who is insulting their god.

"What NCP leader Jitendra Awhad is saying is completely false. It is not written anywhere in our scriptures that Lord Ram had non-vegetarian food during his exile. It is written that he used to have fruits...Such a liar has no right to insult our Lord Ram...Our God was always vegetarian...He is speaking demeaning words to insult our Lord Ram," he said
