It makes sense when people question Rama for making Sita walk through fire to prove her chastity and still sending her on exile on the same chastity business. People tend to do with a rigor which is only natural when you find a flaw in a character you have been told to idolise all along.
But why heroize Ravana in the process? I mean didn't the man kidnap Sita and put his country in a war for the sake of his lust for a woman?
Or is it that people can't reverse their opinion on one hero without reversing on the villian.
I think of Ramayana as a part of History that has been coated with the divinity paint. I still chant my hanuman chalisas and vishnu sahsranamams.
