Mumbai: After Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and Leader of Opposition in Maharashtra Legislative Assembly Jitendra Awhad sparked controversy on Wednesday by calling Lord Ram a ‘Meat Eater’, there has been a massive uproar over his alleged anti-Hindu statement. Maharashtra BJP has staged a massive protest in the state following the offensive statement. Now BJP leader Ram Kadam has filed a police complaint against Jitendra Awhad at Chirag Police Station, Ghatkopar, against the NCP-Sharad Pawar faction leader, Jitendra Awhad, for his statement about Lord Ram being a "non-vegetarian".

“Their mindset is to hurt the sentiments of the Ram bhakts. They can't make fun of the Hindu religion to gather votes. The fact that Ram mandir has been built has not gone down well with the 'ghamandi' alliance.”

“The statement was made in Sharad Pawar’s presence. Even other INDI alliance members are silent over the matter. This only goes on to show that they are not condemning such a vile remark and don’t bother about hurting Hindu sentiments. While God will punish Awhad for his comments, strict legal action should be taken against him and FIR has been lodged against him. He will be arrested for his remarks.”

What did Jitendra Awhad say?

The Sharad Pawar Camp MLA Jitendra Awhad on the first day of NCP party meeting in Shirdi said, "Lord Ram belongs to the minorities. Lord Ram who used to go for hunting, belongs to us. People want us to turn vegan but Lord Ram was a nonvegetarian. We follow the ideals of Ram. He lived in the forest for 14 years, where he would have got vegetarian food in jungles. Isn't it true? Whatever I said is the truth."
