New Delhi: India has given a befitting reply to Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s remark on Ayodhya and Lord Ram by saying that the ‘cultural heritage of India is recognised the world over’.
Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson, Anurag Srivastava said, “Deep and culturally rich heritage of our country is known all over the world.”
He also noted that the Nepalese foreign ministry had issued a clarification and did not want to comment any further on the matter.
PM Oli had made a controversial statement that Lord Ram was born in a Nepalese village near the border town of Birgunj and had described India’s Ayodhya as part of a “fake Indian narrative.”
To a separate question on Kerala’s gold smuggling case, Srivastava said India is in touch with the UAE authorities regarding the investigation in this matter.
