Raipur: Chhattisgarh High Court lawyer Hanuman Prasad Agarwal has filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court claiming that he is a descendant of Lord Rama. Hanuman Agarwal, a resident of Deorikhurd in Bilaspur, cited a reference made in Agra Bhagwat that Maharaja Agrasen, son of The Kush's generation King Vallabh Dev, was a Suryavanshi Kshatriya. Agarwal is the grandson of Kush, son of the society's patriarch Maharaja Agrasen of Lord Sriram.
Maharaja Madhanta, Maharaja Dilip, Bhagirath, Kukutsya, Maharaja Mastra, Maharaja Raghu, Lord Sriram, etc were born in the family of Maharaja Ikshwaku. It is in this clan that Maharaja Agrasen was born. His father was the 18th son of Maharaja Vallabh Sen, Maharaja Agrasen. Agarwal, currently living in the country, is the 34th generation of Lord Sriram. The history of Maharaj Agarsen is 5189 years old. He has sought inclusion of this fact in the Ayodhya Ram temple-Babri Masjid case.
The Supreme Court had on Friday questioned one of the parties involved in the politically sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case, Ram Lalla Virajman, whether any of the Raghuvansh (god ram's descendants) is still residing in Ayodhya. A five-judge bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi had questioned the question of senior advocate Parasaran appearing for Ram Lala Virajman.
