United States channel's finding on Ram Setu reaffirms BJP's stand: Prasad

039;Ram Setu exists', US promo reignites debate on the mythological bridge

The discovery was made by the American Scientists, and the video was uploaded to the Twitter account of Science Channel.

This Discovery Mainly puts its focus behind the Hindu mythological text in Ramayana that Shows that Lord Ram built the Ram Setu Bridge to travel to Sri Lanka. The show cites images from a NASA and claims that investigators have found a line of rocks 30 miles long between India and Sri Lanka.

On the other hand, Congress leader Rajiv Shukla said in a statement, "His party always believed that Ram Setu exists".

Ram Setu is a chain of rocks between Pamban Island, also known as Rameswaram Island in Tamil Nadu, India, and Sri Lanka's Mannar island.

A similar bridge has been mentioned in Valmiki's Ramayana, and some Hindus claim the existence of Adam's Bridge to be proof that the events narrated in the epic are historically true.

I think he feels he is part of his career where he did so well here and went there and did not get to the level he wanted. I am still the same player I was before, but I have experience now.

In 2008, the then Congress-led central government told the Supreme Court that there exists no bridge between India and Sri Lanka, and that if Lord Ram built one, he must have also destroyed it later.

Adding further to this, he said, "It came to our knowledge that Ram Setu is man-made and the stones are thousand years old... It (Ram Setu) has become an object of worship only recently", the UPA government's affidavit had said. The project involved dredging in the Palk Strait between India and Sri Lanka, and its alignment cut through the Adam's Bridge, or Ram Setu.

"Those who filed the affidavit should explain now". A dating analysis of the rocks showed that the rocks were 7,000 years old while the sandbar beneath it is only 4,000 years old.

In March this year, the Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR) chose to take up an underwater exploration study to find out whether the Ram Setu is man-made.

Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Wednesday called the Ram Setu an important part of Indian heritage and said that nobody should meddle with it.
