T’gana committed to fulfil ideals of Komaram Bheem: KCR


Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has said that the state government is committed to fulfil the ideals of Komaram Bheem who fought for the rights of the tribals.

He claimed that the state government has made the aspiration of Adivasis “Our rule in our Gudem, our Thanda”, a reality.

The Chief Minister paid rich tributes to Adivasis’ most worshipped leader Komaram Bheem on his birth anniversary on Friday, and recalled the services rendered by him.

He said that the state government is implementing several schemes and programmes for the welfare and development of Adivasis and Komaram Bheem’s birth anniversary is celebrated officially.

He said that Jodeghat, the place from where Komaram Bheem waged his battle, has been developed. Komaram Bheem memorial, Smriti Vanam and a museum have been constructed at Jodeghat.

The Chief Minister said to uphold the self-respect of the tribals, an Adivasi Bhavan is being constructed in the centre of Hyderabad and it is ready for the inauguration.

Chandrasekhar Rao said that Komaram Bheem’s slogan ‘Jal Jangal Zameen’ was very much an integral part of the separate Telangana statehood and of the development path under the self-governing state.

Stating that Adivasis have a very special love towards forests and nature, he said everyone should take inspiration from them in this regard.

Komaram Bheem Muslim skullcap lands Rajamouli in soup


The ‘adivasis’ (tribals) of Adilabad are up in arms against director Rajamouli for showing their hero Komaram Bheem in a poor light.

The tribals warned that they will file a case against Rajamouli under SC/ST Atrocities Act if certain scenes from RRR are not immediately removed.

In the promotional teaser scenes, Junior NTR who essayed the role of Komaram Bheem, is shown wearing the Muslim skullcap and white kurta and pyjama.

The tribals were aghast as to how Rajamouli can show a tribal freedom fighter as a Muslim.

The tribals said the portrayal of Komram Bheem wearing the Muslim skullcap was an insult to the Gond hero who led an uprising against the last Nizam of Hyderabad in the 1940s.

“Komaram Bheem fought against the Nizam and his Razakar army. He took up arms against Nizam soldiers until his last breath. Why has Rajamouli shown Komaram Bheem wearing a Muslim skull cap? This has hurt the sentiments of thousands of adivasis. Such blatant falsehood in the name of history. If he wants to make a movie, let him show the belly buttons of women. Why insult our God. If Rajamouli fails to remove such portrayal of Komaram Bheem, we will dig his grave,” the adivasis warned.

The tribals said Komaram Bheem was a Gond hero who fought against the Nizam feudal landlords for usurping their lands.”For us, Komaram Bheem is our deity. We even pray to him and observe Aswayuja Powrnami to commemorate his life. Portraying Komaram Bheem as a Muslim is an affront to his family and the entire Gond tribe. Rajamouli, you remove the scene, or you will face our wrath,” the tribals warned.

“Rajamouli spreading falsehood. He has not visited any of the villages in Adilabad, did not speak to the adivasis before making the movie,” another tribal youth fumed at the Bahubaali fame director.

Asifabad was renamed as Komaram Bheem district after the legendary Gond martyr who was born in Ravte Sankepalli village near Asifabad.
