He is a responsible person of the society, so this does not suit him. Ramcharitmanas is read in Sanatan Dharma. There is no such sentiment of Manas Patal which is not expressed on Ramcharitmanas. Ram is the character and ideal of India. It is a very unfortunate thing to say about Ram like this. How despicable is Swami Prasad’s statement, it reflects his personality.
