Rama, Seetha ate beef: seer

Veerabhadra Channamalla Swami of the Nidumamidi Mutt stoked a controversy on Wednesday by claiming that Lord Rama and Seetha used to consume beef.

Cow meat was consumed at the time of yagnas too, the pontiff said, adding that there was reference to it in the Valmiki Ramayana also.

The RSS and BJP have forgotten this and are trying to impose a cultural imperialism on the country, which is a democracy, he said.

The Sangh Parivar says all Hindus are one. But it is the Hindus who discriminate against the untouchable communities, Channamalla Swami said.
