At VHP Meet At Kumbh Mela, Clash Over Ram Temple Construction Date


Kumbh Mela, Prayagraj:

Delegates in a sabha dharma or a religious meeting organized by the Hindu parishad Vishwa in the Kumbh Mela in the Prayagraj of Uttar Pradesh clashed today with members of the right-wing organization on the issue of the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya.

The incident occurred just after the head of SSR Mohan Bhagwat’s speech in the dharma sabha, where he suggested that the construction of the temple would have to wait a few more months.

These furious sections of the crowd, mostly Hindu religious leaders and their followers, rose from their seats and began asking for a specific date for the construction of the temple. Finally, they were expelled by members of the VHP, but not before hitting.

“We want to do something within a year, we want the construction of the temple to begin, if something happens before four to six months, it’s good, if not, then it will certainly happen after four to six months,” Mr. Bhagwat had said. Before the crowd of about 5,000 people, he also stressed that only the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was interested in working for the temple in Ayodhya.

The huge Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj, formerly Allahabad, has become an echo chamber for powerful Hindu groups to press for a Ram temple in Ayodhya. This is not the first time that the VHP organizes a large gathering to talk about the path to the temple, but that they meet at the Kumbh Mela with the temple because their approach is considered significant.

Swaroopan and Saraswati, the head of the Dwarka Sharda Peeth, also met at the Kumbh earlier this week and called a march to Ayodhya on February 21 to lay the first stone of the Ram Temple. “Until the Supreme Court cancels the Supreme Court order, it still applies, Lord Ram lives there and it’s his birthplace,” he told reporters, referring to an order from the Allahabad High Court that is pending before the court. higher.

The government led by Prime Minister Modi has said that any legislative route to build the temple is possible only after the judicial case is resolved in the claim for the title.

On Tuesday, the center asked the Supreme Court that surplus lands acquired by the government in 1993 around the disputed site, where the Babri mosque was located, could be returned to the original owners.
A large part of this surplus land is claimed by the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas or the trust that oversees the plan of the Ram temple.
