US Channel’s Finding On Ram Setu Proves That Shri Ram And His Sena Did The Unthinkable: BJP recently got a boost from the findings of a US based Science Channel about the Ram Setu. BJP as party always took the stance that the 50-km bridge was built by Lord Ram to rescue his wife Sita from the neighboring country.
However, their opposition party Congress always questioned that belief and said it was natural. This controversy is nothing new as some historians believe there was a land bridge existed between the two nations during the Ice Age, while other claims suggest Sri Lanka broke away from India 1,25,000 years ago.
The latest findings of the show say that the ‘Ram Setu’ connecting India and Sri Lanka was man-made. The channel has put out a trailer of the show on Tuesday that goes with the tagline “Are the ancient Hindu myths of a land bridge connecting India and Sri Lanka true? Scientific analysis suggests they are”.
BJP leaders used this as ammunition to take an upper and on Congress. Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad stated that the latest research supported BJP’s claims about the Setu being part of India’s cultural heritage.
UPA government led by Congress party opposed this belief in 2008 as they filed an affidavit before the Supreme Court.

They doubted the existence of Ramayana, Lord Rama and their links to Ram Setu. Hindu outfits and satraps objected massively to the government’s move at that time and BJP leaders opposed it. However, with this latest claim, they are not leaving any stone unturned to criticize Congress.
Ravi Shankar went on to say that those who filed the affidavit should explain themselves now, as quoted by PTI.
However, the UPA government changed their stance about the matter when they modified their affidavit. They claimed that if Lord Ram had indeed built the bridge, he must have also destroyed it later.
It was during the controversy regarding the construction of the Sethusamudram Channel Project after there were concerns that it may cut through the Ram Setu – also known as the Adam’s Bridge. The UPA government’s affidavit had said that they not destroying any bridge as there is no bridge.
They claimed that it was not a man-made structure. In the affidavit they also said that it is a superman-made structure, but the same superman had destroyed it. For that reason, nobody worshipped it for centuries.
However the show quotes an archaeologist who claims that the stones n top of the bridge pre-date the sand and they were brought from afar and set on top of the sand bar.
Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju also claimed that BJP was right about the matter all along.
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy said that three retired directed generals from Geological Survey of India gave a report, which was placed in the apex court to show that this is man-made and the US scientists have come forward to say what we already knew. Smriti Irani tweeted the trailer with a caption of “Jai Shri Ram.”
