Attacking the Centre for its recent affidavit filed in the Supreme Court saying Lord Ram himself destroyed the Ramsethu, VHP on Thursday accused the Congress-led UPA government of insulting the feelings of crores of Hindus.

Terming the Centre's position on Ramsethu as "unfortunate", VHP General Secretary Surendra Jain strongly condemned the government of resorting to different trick on the issue only "to appease certain sections of society".

Criticising the reference from a particular version of Ramayana given by the Centre to the apex court on Ramsethu, Jain said that the Valmiki Ramayana is the most recognised and acceptable and hence "the reference should be accepted from this version only".

"There are thousands of versions of Ramayana available, but the most recognised and acceptable one is that written by Valmiki," he said and thanked the government of accepting the existence of Lord Ram in their recent affidavit.

In its earlier affidavit government had questioned the existence of Lord Ram, calling him a mythological character only.

"I thank the government for accepting at least the fact, though unknowingly and unintentionally, that Lord Ram existed," he said.

"On August 4, We are going to organise 'Jalabhishek' in the "Shiv Mandirs" with the pledge to remove the anti-national and anti-Hindu forces," he said.

On the Amarnath land controversy he said: "Now Congress has joined hand with the National Conference and PDP to deprive Hindus of the facilities and amenities for Amarnath Yatra."
