Bihar BJP MLA argued that highbrow capacity will growth if one starts wondering on a scientific basis to reach a logical end.
A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA from Bihar courted controversy with the aid of questioning Hindu beliefs related to Lakshmi, goddess of wealth, fortune, and prosperity,triggering protests in his domestic constituency. Lalan Paswan, BJP MLA from Pirpainti Assembly constituency in Bhagalpur district, said that there could not have any billionaires and trillionaires among Muslims if worshipping goddess Lakshmi would make human beings rich, suggested ANI.
“If we get wealth best via worshipping Goddess Lakshmi, then there would were no billionaires and trillionaires among Muslims. Muslims do no longer worship Goddess Lakshmi, are they now not rich?,” Paswan said, as quoted through ANI.
“Muslims do not worship Goddess Saraswati. Are there no pupils amongst Muslims? Do not they come to be IAS or IPS?” he in addition asked rhetorically.
He asserted that the whole lot, together with the affair of “Atma and Paramatma”, is just humans’s perception.
He said, “If you agree with then it is a goddess and if not then it’s miles just a stone idol. It is as much as us whether we believe in Gods and Goddesses or now not. We need to assume on a systematic foundation to attain a logical conclusion. If you stop believing, then your highbrow capacity will increase.”
“It is believed that Bajrangbali is a deity with electricity and bestows strength. Muslims or Christians do not worship Bajrangbali. Are they not powerful? The day you forestall believing, all these items will give up,” introduced Paswan.
People outraged through the BJP MLA’s assertion held a protest at Shermari Bazar in Bhagalpur and also burnt his effigy.
Paswan had in advance come to mild when he allegedly leaked a non-public communication with Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav.
