Karuna earns BJP's wrath for comments on Lord Ram
Onkar Singh in New Delhi | September 17, 2007 20:05 IST
The Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday hit out at Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Karunanidhi for his controversial statements on Lord Ram.
"We would like to know from Karunanidhi if he would make a similar statement against religious head of any other religion; chance are he may not," Prasad said.
He demanded that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images], who is now recuperating at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences after a minor surgery, and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi [Images] tender an apology to the nation for the controversial affidavits filed in the Supreme Court.
"Some say there was a person over 17 lakh years ago. His name was Ram. Do not touch the bridge (Ram Setu) constructed by him. Who is this Ram? From which engineering college did he graduate? Is there any proof for this," Karunanidhi, a known atheist, asked at a public meeting late Sunday night on the occasion of DMK founder C N Annadurai's 99th birth anniversary.
