    Normally, petitions are filing on the court against the people who are still alive. There is no use to give complaints against those people who passes away. What is the motivation behind it for charging a complaint against Rama the Hindu God whom we believe that lived in the society many years ago?

    It speaks of the ignorance and foolishness of the petitioner. The Court rightly dismissed the case.

    Ramayan is not just a story of Ram and Sita and Ravana and how Ram threw Sita out of home, etc. IT is more about symbolisms and deep meanings and without reading and understanding the full epic, we cannot comment on whether Ram did right or wrong to Sita.

    Exactly ! Epics have become so because of their impact on the masses and also the wisdom and depth that they impart! Ramayana is not just a story about Ram and Sita but about a time period in history. Rama too did not lead a happy life but he suffered because of the consequences of his action. One may say he was rigid but it does not make him any lesser a man ! It is precisely because of this quality, where an individual can identify his own self with that of Ram, who is an avatar of God , that these epics become so much a part of your life. Goes to show God is universal and humble and he has no airs ...It is the people who make him seem like a control freak !!!

    Exactly! It is what we learn from epics such as Ramayana and Mahabharata and apply it on our lives is what matters rather than keep searching of evidence, demanding justice and trying prove or disprove whether it happened in reality or was it all a sham. Such epics are there only to make us aware that as humans, we are all vulnerable and prone to vices and ills of human greed and no one is spared any kind of sufferings. Along with goodness, one needs to be humble too. so on and so forth.

    One can pick holes in every epic from every religion, so it is best not to point fingers , but accept it as literature from the past and if one is willing one can explore the depths or else leave it alone ..


    Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!

    Rama was not only husband of Sita, he was also king of Ayodhya. For Hindu Ram is avtar of Lord Vishnu,he spend his like common man and never claim that I am God.

    Ramayana is a beautiful literature of the past. The character Rama was a god-incarnate; that means, God incarnated as a human being. As such, he had to follow the passions and traits of human, the form in which he was incarnated. So his story is a mixture of right and wrong, and good and bad. He was a king who gave top priority to the interests of his people, rather than his personal interests.

    We can always study the literature in detail, analyse the characters and discuss about its relevance in present society, irrespective of whether it was a real story or not. But to file a case in a court against the characters of an epic is a foolish act.

    Many characters in Ramayana and  Bible, look awkward by today's standards. As others have said we must take the best and not question the rest, because whose answer are you going to accept. The creators of these holy books are not around to answer.

    I agree. There are many issues involved in framing cases against mythological figures. First, they cannot be summoned by court for obvious reasons. Secondly, current law did not apply in ancient period. Thirdly there is limitation of time. It will be ridiculous to file a case when there is neither complainant nor defendant. Also if such cases are entertained, there could be many cases for offences by epic characters viz. Dushasan for outraging modesty of Drupadi, Pandavas for using their wife as stake in gamble and Shakuni for cheating in chess.
