What to do if God doesn’t show up for court?

  • by
Not a question that I would imagine, surfaces that regularly. Seemingly in India at the moment there is a long running land battle and two of the supposed land owners are named as two Hindu gods. Seriously without any disrespect, you could not make this up. The two gods, Ram and Hanuman, have been summoned to appear in court by the judge. When they initially failed to turn up, the judge wasn’t happy. This is a snippet from the Irish Times article on the case:

Sunil Kumar Singh has placed adverts in newspapers in the coal-mining town of Dhanbad, northeast of the state capital, Ranchi, asking widely worshipped gods Ram and Hanuman to appear in his court next week to present their side of the argument in the long- running land ownership case.

“You failed to appear in court despite notices sent by a peon and later through registered post. You are hereby directed to appear before the court personally,” Judge Singh’s notice stated.
