After a video of the former Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi went viral over the internet, BJP leader Gajendra Jha on Monday announced a reward of Rs 11 lakh for any Brahmin man who will chop off Manjhi’s tongue.

Two FIRs have also been registered against him for making derogatory remarks against the Brahmin community. One FIR is registered in Patna and the other one in Purnea.

Gajendra Jha said, “if a son of a Brahmin cuts off the tongue of Jitan Ram Manjhi and brings it before him, he would be rewarded Rs 11 lakh.” He added that he would bear that person’s lifetime expenses too.

We initially believed that Jitan Ram Manjhi is a mentally ill person. He has lost his consciousness. But he is repeatedly making derogatory and abusive statements against Brahmins, which cannot be tolerated,” he said.

He added, “He neither has the dignity nor does he believe in Hinduism. In a bid to save the Hindu religion, I am ready to die.”

Jitan Ram Manjhi on December 18 addressed a public gathering and said, “When I was young, the prevalence of Satyanarayan Puja was not very popular in our community (Mushar). These days, the prevalence of Satyanarayan Puja is taking place in almost every house. More alarmingly, the Brahmin (Pundits) come to our house, conduct Puja but they do not eat food in our houses. They shamelessly demand money (Dakshina) from us instead of eating food in our houses.”

“Baba Saheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar was a Hindu but he changed his religion to Buddhist before his death. He said that the Hindu community is the worst community and hence he had changed the religion. When he died, he was Buddhist,” he said.

But after the video went viral, he apologized. He claimed to have used abusive language for his own community, not for Brahmins. “Still, if anyone is hurt with my statement I would take back my words.

I used the word haraami for my fellow Dalits, to instill in them some self-respect. I did not use the word for Brahmins,” he clarified his statement.
