The Allahabad High Court observed that Lord Ram, Lord Krishna, Ramayana, Gita and its authors Maharishi Valmiki and Maharishi Ved Vyas, are part of the heritage of India and need to be given national honour by bringing a law in the Indian Parliament.

The Bench of Justice Shekhar Yadav made the observation while dealing with a bail plea of Surya Prakash, who had allegedly made some obscene remarks on Lord Rama and Lord Krishna on his Facebook account.

The obscene remarks made by the accused / applicant about the great men of India, Lord Shri Ram and Shri Krishna, is an injury to the faith of the majority of the people of this country and it spoils the peace and harmony in the society and innocent people have to bear the brunt of it,” the court said.

The court referred to Article 19 of the Indian Constitution court remarked “The Indian Constitution, which is the world’s largest and most liberal constitution, allows a citizen to not believe in any religion or to remain an atheist, but it must be seen that he is not against the traditions of related to religion, health, morality, law and order or the rights of other citizens.”

While granting bail to the accused the court referred to the Apex Court’s decision in the Ram Janmabhoomi dispute.

“Ram resides in the heart of every citizen of this country, he is the soul of India. The culture of this country is incomplete without Rama.”

The court also stressed that along with bringing a law to honour Lord Krishna and Rama, there is a “need to educate children by making it a compulsory subject in all the schools of the country because only through education a person becomes cultured and becomes aware of his life values and his culture.

Earlier in the month of September 2021, Justice Shekhar Yadav had said that the cow should be declared as a national animal of India and must be given fundamental rights enshrined in the Constitution of India. He also urged that parliament should bring a law upon it.
