A day after BJP MP and member of the erstwhile Jaipur royal family Diya Kumari claimed to be a descendant of Lord Ram’s son Kush, another erstwhile royal family in the state has made a similar claim.
Mahendra Singh, a member of erstwhile Mewar-Udaipur royal family also claimed to be a descendant of Lord Ram saying, “I got to know through media that Supreme Court has apparently asked whether there were any descendants of Lord Ram in the world. If this is the case, then the Supreme Court can directly contact us and all the evidence and documents will be produced in the court following proper legal procedure.”
The claim came a day after, BJP MP and member of Jaipur royal family Diya Kumari on Sunday made her claim to be a descendant of Lord Ram.
“When the Supreme Court questioned whether there is any descendant of Lord Ram in the world or not, then I replied that we (Jaipur royal family) are descendants of Lord Ram’s son Kush. I also said that just like us, there are many more people in the world who come from his lineage. It is a matter of pride that we are descended from him,” Diya Kumari told reporters.
She was responding to an ongoing debate in the Supreme Court over the Ram Janmbhoomi temple issue, in which the Bench had apparently asked whether there were any descendants of Lord Ram in the world.
On being asked about proof to back up her claims, the BJP MP said that her family had documents from the ancient times, which traced their lineage back to Lord Ram and his direct descendants.
