Now, Mewar royals declare themselves descendants of Lord Rama
On Sunday, BJP MLA and former Jaipur royal family member Diya Kumari had said that her family is descended from Lord Rama's son Kush.
Every day now, there is somebody or the other claiming lineage from Lord Rama. After Jaipur, the Mewar royal family has now claimed they are descendants of Lord Rama.
Arvind Singh Mewar, a former Udaipur royal family member, tweeted, "It is historically proven that my family are direct descendants of Shri Ram. We are not making any claim to the land of Ram's birth but believe that a temple for Sri Ram must be built at Ram's birthplace in Ayodhya."
It is historically proven that my family is direct descendants of Shree Ram. We do not wish to stake any claim on Ram Janma Bhumi but believe that Shree Ram Temple must be built at Ram Janma Bhumi in Ayodhya. @PMOIndia #AyodhyaHearing #AyodhyaCase #RamMandir #Ayodhya #LordRam- Arvind Singh Mewar (@ArvindSMewar) August 12, 2019
On Sunday, BJP MLA and former Jaipur royal family member Diya Kumari had said that Lord Rama's descendants were spread all over the world. Her family is descended from Lord Rama's son Kush, she claimed.
The Supreme Court on Friday sought to know whether any descendants of Lord Rama's clan were still living in Ayodhya. Since then, many have declared that they are descendants of Rama.
Diya Kumari said that on the basis of manuscripts, genealogies and documents present with the royal family, she had found that her family was descended from Lord Rama. She said that a solution to the land dispute in Ayodhya should be found soon and the Ram temple should be built after removing the obstacles in its way.
The Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute is being heard in the Supreme Court.
