Media (not Chindu) misquoted Buddhadeb : Chindu

This is absolutely hilarious stuff. Chindu is scared of being sent to the gulags that it is clarifying that it is not a part of the media which misquoted Buddhadeb. Getting loads of yen and committing blunders is a punishable offence, isn't it. Hence the disclaimer by Chindu.

The meaning is quite clear even from the clarification that Buddhadeb is trying to deny the existence of Ram. The bottom report by IE puts it in simple words.

The Hindu : National : Buddhadeb clarifies position on Lord Ram

... in connection with the 15th anniversary of the demolition of the Babri
Masjid, I quoted the following lines from Rabindranath Tagore: ‘Kobi
tobo monobhumi Ram er jonmosthan Ayodhya r theke satya jeno’ (the
poet’s mind is the birth place of Ram, which is more real than
Ayodhya),” the statement said. :: Ram figment of poet’s imagination, Sethu natural, says Buddha
Reigniting the Ram Sethu controversy, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee has questioned the existence of Lord Ram, triggering an angry reaction from BJP which said the comment constituted an “offence”.

“Ram is a figment of a poet’s imagination and Ram Sethu is a natural formation under the sea,” Bhattacharjee told a meeting to mark the 15th anniversary of the demolition of Babri Masjid on Thursday. He said the Sethusamudram project was being opposed by the Sangh Parivar on religious grounds, but it was vital for economic development of the region.
