While the Ram Mandir issue is still pending in the Supreme Court, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam and AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi today said that there is a very high possibility of the verdict coming out just before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
“I am 100 per cent sure that the verdict on Ram Mandir will come before 2019 because the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wants it,” said Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam at the India Today Conclave 2018.
“Sky will not fall if the Supreme Court judgment does not come before the 2019 polls. Why 2019 is a magic number,” said All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen(AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Sambit Patra said it was “blasphemous to read a political conspiracy with the Supreme Court’s judgment”. “If you can’t compete with Modi, stop throwing stones at the judiciary,” Patra said.
TITLE SUIT OR MATTER OF FAITH
Sanjay Nirupam attacked the BJP over its politics on Ram Mandir and said that the party brings up the issue before every election but is not interested in the construction of the Ram Mandir.
BJP’s Sambit Patra, in turn, took a jibe at the Congress for its ambivalence on the issue of Ram. “The Congress can’t decide whether to adopt Ram or discard Ram. This will drown them in Saryu,” he said.
Patra said that Ram Mandir will be built (Mandir wahin banega) and he is ready to write it on a piece of paper. One cannot divorce faith and Ram, said Sambit Patra, adding that “it is an article of faith” for Indians.
AIMIM’s Asaduddin Owaisi said the issue of Ram Mandir is one of title suit and it has nothing to do with faith.
WHY NO ACTION AGAINST SRI SRI
Both Sanjay Nirupam and Asaddudin Owaisi said that spiritial guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar should not have spoken on the Ram Mandir issue.
“Why is Sri Sri allowed to talk about Ram Mandir,” asked Sanjay Nirupam and slammed the government for not taking action against him.
Asaduddin Owaisi concurred, “This is a functional democracy, who is he (Sri Sri) to say India will turn into Syria.”
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, in an exclusive interview to India Today, had said that if the Ram Mandir issue is not resolved amicably, it could lead to a Syria-like situation.
IS RAM A GREAT UNIFIER?
Asked whether Ram Mandir construction will be the ultimate unifier or fuel hate politics, Sambit Patra said, “Ram is a great unifier, he was imam-e-Hind”.
Sanjay Nirupam said that Ayodhya is an issue of love and not hate and the BJP must not do politics over it.
Asaduddin Owaisi said that Babri Masjid is an issue of justice and the Supreme Court should decide on the basis of title and not faith.
