Did the center deny the proof of Ram Setu in the Indian Parliament? – Read Fact Check
A claim is getting viral on social media that gave the impression that the Centre has denied the existence of the Ram Setu, the important and historical bridge built by the army of Lord Ram between India and Sri Lanka.
To check the claim, we searched on google using some keywords and found a report of Times Now.
According to the report, “Singh said in response to Sharma’s query, ” I am glad to share with him that the department of space is engaged in this. As far as the question that was asked, we have certain limitations in discovering that (Ram Setu) because the history dates back two more than 18,000 years. If you go by history, the bridge was about 56 kilometers long,”
He further stated, “so what I am trying to say in short is that it is hard to pinpoint the exact structure that existed there. However, there is some kind of indication, direct or indirect that those structures have existed.’ Yes to some extent through space technology, we have been able to discover pieces and islands, some kind of limestone shoals, which of course cannot be accurately said to be remnants parts of a bridge,
Through the investigation of DFRAC, it is clear that the Centre never said that there is no evidence of Ram Setu but since it was over 18,000 years old, the means to find the proof has not yet yielded results. He said that they were trying to get evidence, but are not denying the existence.
Claim Review: the center denied the proof of Ram Setu.
