Oli: Lord Rama Nepali, not Indian, real Ayodhya in Nepal

In a stunning claim which is set to spark controversy, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Monday said that Lord Rama was born in Ayodhya village of Nepal and not in India as claimed.

PM Oli made the bizarre claim while addressing a program to mark the birth anniversary of Bhanubhakta Acharya.

“Although real Ayodhya lies at Thori, city in the west of Birgunj, India has claimed that Lord Rama was born there. Due to these continuous claims even we have believed that deity Sita got married to Prince Rama of India. However, in reality, Ayodhya is a village lying west of Birgunj,” he said.

PM Oli also accused India of cultural encroachment by “creating a fake Ayodhya.”

“Till now we have remained under the that Ram, the man Sita married, was an Indian… he was not, he was a Nepali. Balmiki Ashram is in and the holy place where King Dashrath had executed the rites to get the son is in Ridi. Dashrath’s son Ram was not an Indian and Ayodhya is also in Nepal,” he noted.

The Nepalese prime minister also asked how Lord Rama could come to Janakpur to marry Sita when there was “no means” of communication. He added that it was impossible for Lord Rama to come to Janakpur from Ayodhya in India.

“Janakpur lies here and Ayodhya there and there is talk of marriage. There was neither telephone nor mobile then how could he know about Janakpur,” Oli said.

It is to be noted that Janakpur in Dhanusa District of is mythologically revered as the birthplace of Sita. In 2018, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had visited Janakpur and had inaugurated a direct bus service to Ayodhya as part of a ‘Ramayan Circuit’. During his visit, PM Modi had also visited the 20th century Janaki temple, dedicated to Sita, in Nepal. He had also announced a Rs 100 crore package to develop Janakpur.

The bilateral ties between India and came under strain after Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh inaugurated a road connecting the Lipulekh pass with Dharchula in Uttarakhand. The inauguration of 80-km-long road did not go down well with Nepal government with Kathmandu claiming that the road was built on Nepalese land. recently updated its political and included some Indian territories in the new map.

Condemning Oli for his remarks, BJP national spokesperson Bizay Sonkar Shastri said that the Left parties even in India played with people’s faith, and the Communists in will be rejected by the masses in the same way they have been here.

“Lord Ram is a matter of faith for us, and people will not allow anybody, be it prime minister of or anyone, to play with this,” he said in New Delhi.
