Patna, Jan 11 (SocialNews.XYZ) Bihar Education Minister Chandrashekher Yadav, in comments that could create a furore, on Wednesday claimed that the "Manu Smriti", the "Ram Charit Manas" and second RSS chief M.S. Golwarkar's "Bunch of Thoughts" spread hatred in the society.

"Keeping in view the contents, Babasaheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar said that these books spread hatred in the society. 'Manu Smriti' spread hatred in the first era, 'Ram Charit Manas' in the second era and Golwarkar's 'Bunch of Thoughts' in the third era," Yadav said.
