Chandigarh, Nov 6 (UNI) Punjab Minister for Medical Education and Research Tikshan Sud today urged President Pratibha Patil to intervene to ensure a nationwide ban on ''Sachchi Ramayan'' by E V Ramaswamy Naicker Periyar, saying that provocative references regarding Lord Rama in this book could flare up communal passions in the country.

In a statement issued here, the senior BJP leader urged the President to take immediate action claiming that the book contained objectionable references to Lord Rama and other characters in the epic revered by the Hindus.

He demanded that Union Home Ministry should be directed to immediately impose a ban on the publication and sale of the objectionable book and seize its copies throughout the country.
