It was a day for Lord Ram on Twitter, but what for? It was certainly not Ram Navami (Lord Ram’s birth anniversary celebrations) nor Diwali, then why did ‘he’ suddenly make the virtual world remember him.

Well, the buzz was created when a Bihar court agreed to hear a petition filed against Lord Ram, for the ‘cruelty showed’ towards his wife, Sita.

A report by the Hindustan Times said, a senior lawyer filed the case in the court of the chief judicial magistrate (CJM) in Sitamarhi, north Bihar.

The report quoted the complainant as saying, “The Devi was exiled (given ‘vanvasa’) for no fault of hers. It was a hypocritical order from king Rama. How can a man become so cruel to his wife that he sends her off to live in a forest? Lord Rama did not think for a single moment how a woman could live alone amid wild animals, including reptiles and mammals, in the forest.”

As hearing of the case is scheduled for Monday, twitterarti reacted to this rather bizarre case:

    Court accepted for hearing on this? It's mockery of judiciary. Wonder what would anyone get out of this. What about Ravan then? If someone truly believes and stand for justice, he should have first filed case against Ravan.

        Lord Ram is the first being in known history to demonstrate what is ethics and what is not. Of course this is something to which many Nehruvian Indians are not familiar with!

          In any case Ram is an obsession of the Hindi belt. Nobody cares about him east of Bihar, south of Madhya Pradesh, and north of Haryana. Krishna has more fan following than Ram.

            Well, mythology says the nan mistreated his wife. Buried her alive. Much like Anarkalu was. So Ram and Akbar are brothers in crime.
