Ram Setu to be declared a national monument! Central govt responded in SC

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday granted four weeks time to the Centre to explain its stand on a plea seeking recognition of Ram Setu as a historical monument. On this, the Central Government has told the apex court that the process of declaring 'Ram Setu' as a National Heritage Monument is still going on in the Ministry of Culture.

In fact, senior BJP leader and former Union Minister Subramanian Swamy had demanded an early hearing on the petition to recognize Ram Setu as a historical monument in 2020. The Supreme Court has told BJP leader Subramanian Swamy that he can also give any documents or other material related to this issue to the ministry. Petitioner Swamy has said that he has won the first round of the case, under which the central government had accepted the existence of Ram Setu.  

Subramanian Swamy, in his PIL against the controversial Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project, had sought to declare Ram Setu as a national monument. After this, the matter reached the Supreme Court, due to which work for the project on Ram Setu was stopped.

Congress wanted to break Ram Setu:

The Manmohan Singh government of Congress also tried to break the Ram Setu by forming a company called Sethusamudram Corporation Limited. At that time too, the BJP strongly opposed it and it was stopped after the matter reached the Supreme Court. However, Congress had given an affidavit in the Supreme Court calling Lord Shri Ram imaginary. At that time Kapil Sibal was the lawyer of the Congress government.  

Ram Setu is not natural, it is man-made:

After this, the eyes of scientists around the world were on Ram Setu and research started on it. According to a report, America's science channel has claimed with facts that Ram Setu - located between India and Sri Lanka - is not natural, but man-made, that is, it was built by a human beingScientists in the US have found evidence that the stones of Ram Setu are about 7000 years old.
