Lucknow: Over the past few weeks Lord Hanuman has been linked to various castes and again another Uttar Pradesh BJP leader said that Lord Hanuman was a “jat”. Laxmi Narayan Chaudhary the minister, utter that his assessment is based on the fact that this popular Hindu god has traits similar to the Jat community.
The minister told to news agency that “ I think Hanuman Ji was jat, because when a jet sees someone in trouble, he (Lord Hanuman) jumps in without knowing the issue or the people.” he also added “ Lord Hanuman behavior is very similar to that of a jat because after Goddess Sita was kidnapped by Ravan, he immediately came to Lord Ram’s help”
The minister also said “ Everyone who believes in the Sanatan Dharm would surely worship Lord Hanuman. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has already given an explanation in this issue. When this topic came to my notice, I sai that it is through an individuals behavior that we conclude about one’s lineage”
However, Bukkal Nawab, a councilor added twist again while insisting that Lord Hanuman was a Muslim. But he based his only on the name. He said “ I believe that Lord Hanuman was a Muslim. That is why the names of the people in Islam are almost similar to Lord Hanuman, whether it is Rehman, Ramzan, Farman, Zeeshan, and Qurban. Such types of names are found in Islam only”
The one other statements come after the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath said at the rally in Rajasthan last month: “ Bajrang Bali (Lord Hanuman) is such a god that he is a forest-dweller, lives in the mountains. Dalits, deprived, he takes everyone along, from east to west, north to south, and unites them all.
