More than 1,000 contestants had registered for the contest held between the two months of July and August 2022.
Mohammed Basith, the second winner, said that he realised while studying this epic that people of every religion should study all religions. Studying different religions will help to stop violence from taking place in the name of religion. All religions teach us to have love and respect for each other. Mohammed Basith M has learnt many chapters of Ramayan by heart.
It is our responsibility to study and understand the epics like Ramayan and Mahabharat ! – Mohammed Jabir PK
Mohammed Jabir PK said that all Indians should read Ramayan and Mahabharat. The Holy books are an important part of our culture, traditions, and history. It is, therefore, our responsibility to read and understand these Holy books.
How many Hindu young men/women study their Holy scriptures and win such contests ?
