Patna (Bihar) [India], Aug 27 (ANI): Lord Shiva was from the Bind caste, claimed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Bihar's Mines and Geology Minister Braj Kishore Bind here on Tuesday.
"Our history is very old. Do you know that Lord Shankar was from Bind caste," Kishore said here at an event organised by Nonia-Bind-Beldar Mahasangh.
During his address, he also cited many Hindi texts to substantiate his claim.
Targetting Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, the state minister said those whose caste is about "2 per cent of the state's total population are ruling over 14 per cent."
"Our guardian Sushil Kumar Modi is present here. We want to say that the population of Bind society in Bihar is 14 per cent but those who are ruling are just 2 per cent of the total population," he said.
Governor Fagu Chauhan and Health Minister Mangal Pandey were also present on the occasion.
Last year, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had courted controversy by claiming that Lord Hanuman was a Dalit, following which a legal notice was served to him by Rajasthan Sarv Brahmin Mahasabha president Suresh Mishra.
Mishra had alleged that the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister called Lord Hanuman a Dalit merely for political benefits. (ANI)
