It is being taught to the postgraduate students," stated Brij Kishore Bind talking to ANI at Kaimur.
"If Lord Krishna can be 'Gwala' and Lord Ram can be 'Kshatriya' by caste, why not Lord Shiva is Bind ? " he asked. Last year, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister raked a controversy when he said that Lord Hanuman belongs to 'Dalit' caste.'
