Lord Hanuman was first tribal man on earth, we should respect him: BJP MLA Gyan Dev Ahuja on Barmer incident

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Gyan Dev Ahuja on Sunday said that Lord Hanuman was the first tribal man on earth and has the maximum number of temples dedicated to him. His comment came after the members of Scheduled Tribes/Scheduled Casts community disrespected Lord Hanuman in Barmer last month during SC/ST protest. He said, "The SC/ST should not disrespect Lord Hanuman as he was the first tribal man on earth and he should be respected. He also has maximum number of temples dedicated to him."
