New Delhi: Senior lawyer and Bharatiya Janata Party MP Ram Jethmalani on Friday refused to apologise for his remarks on Lord Ram. “I have no obligation of any kind of apology to anyone. The Press has lost its sense of humour. I have no intention to embarrass BJP. I want to strengthen the party,” he said.

"It's my understanding to mythology. I have serious doubts whether Ram in that sense is a historical figure," Jethmalani said.

While addressing a gathering at a book launch on man-woman relationship, Jethmalani had on Thursday said, “Ram was a bad husband. I don't like him at all. Just because some fisherman said something against Sita, Ram sent his wife on exile and that too when she was pregnant."

Jethmalani’s remark has evoked criticism from all quarters with the Hindu saints and clerics demanding his immediate apology.
