Rashid Alvi: Those who chant ‘Jai Sri Ram’ not all saints

Rashid Alvi said when Hanuman went to bring sanjeevani booti for Laxman, a demon in the form of a saint chanted 'Jai Sri Ram' to mislead him


While the dust over the raised by Salman Khurshid’s observation on Hindutva in his new on verdict has not settled yet, a video of Indian National Congress (INC) leader Rashid Alvi saying that “not all people who chant Jai Sri Ram are saints” has gone viral.

BJP’s Amit Malviya shared the video of the senior INC leader addressing a gathering and tweeted, “After Salman Khurshid, now INC leader Rashid Alvi is saying those who chant Jai Sri Ram are demons. How much poison does INC have towards the devotees of Ram!”

Recalling the story of Kalanemi, Rashid Alvi said when went to bring sanjeevani booti for Lakshmana, a demon in the form of a saint chanted “Jai Sri Ram” to divert him. It is in this context that the INC leader warned that not all who chant ‘Jai Sri Ram’ are saints, some are demons.

“Lakshmana’s situation was deteriorating.. and it was believed that sanjeevani booti was effective only before the sunrise. Otherwise, it was difficult to save the life. Hanuman ji was entrusted with the responsibility of bringing sanjeevani booti from the Himalayas. Ravana sent a demon in the form of a saint to waste Hanuman ji‘s time so that he could not not bring sanjeevani before sunrise…

“The rakshasa was chanting ‘Jai Sri Ram’… Nowadays, many people chant this. ji descended because he was a devotee. The demon wanted to waste his time and asked Hanuman ji to take a dip in Manasarovar as, without taking a bath, no one should chant :Jai Sri Ram’. Today, however, people chant ‘Jai Sri Ram’ without taking bath. A who was an apsara and turned into a crocodile by some then caught Hanumanji’s feet. Taking the form of the apsara, she told Hanuman that the ‘saint’ chanting ‘Jai Sri Ram’ was actually a rakshas,” the INC leader said.

“What I want to tell you as I conclude my speech is that today also there are many people chanting Jai Shri Ram. They are not all saints, they are demons. Be wary of them,” Rashid Alvi said.

The comment comes at a time when INC leader Salman Khurshid has compared Hindutva with ISIS and Boko Haram in his new on Supreme Court’s verdict. “Sanatan dharma and classical Hinduism known to sages and saints were being pushed aside by a robust version of Hindutva, by all standards a political version similar to the jihadist Islam of groups like Isis and Boko Haram of recent years,” the controversial passage reads.
