Who has killed the demon Bakasur
Answer with explanationAnswer: Option B
As far as Mahabharata is concerned Bhima killed Bakasur. Krishna killing another one by the same name is not a part of Mahabharata since Krishna’s childhood is not a part of the Epic. Mahabhagawata elaborated Krishna’s exploits. So when we take Mahabharata we can safely conclude that Bhima only killed Bakasura.
- Actually, two demons existed with the same name, Bakasura. One was killed by Krishna and the other was killed by Bheema. As far as Mabhararata is considered, Bheema killed Bakasura in Ekachakra. There he was sent to the demon on behalf of the villager as a bait.
- Krishna killing Bakasura is mentioned in Srimad-Bhagwata. He killed the asura in his childhood.
