Hanuman with his supreme strength stood untouched & allowed Rakshasas to meddle with his tail

since with that he could burn the city of Lanka.

When Brahma Astra itself could not affect him what to speak about this little meddling of his tail.

He kept silent since he planned to destroy Lanka with this fire.

The city of Lanka built by Viswakarma, the divine Architect, by the orders of Brahma, was said to

be fireproof. But that it caught fire from the tail of Hanuman & was reduced to ashes suggests his
