A day after Opposition members in the Rajya Sabha raised the issue of stones being brought to Ayodhya for construction of Ram temple and alleged that it was a conspiracy by the BJP and the RSS to communally polarise Uttar Pradesh ahead of the 2017 Assembly polls, RSS’ all India Sah-Prachar Pramukh, J Nandakumar, on Thursday clarified the temple will certainly be built in the future but the Sangh will not take any step against the law to ensure the same.

Referring to the statement issued by Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas member and former BJP MP, Ram Vilas Vedanti, on Wednesday that RSS wants construction work to begin before Assembly polls, Nandakumar said no deadline has been fixed for the purpose.

Temporary Ram temple on the Babri Masjid site after the demolition.“That is Ram Janmabhoomi and it is a clear fact. Temple will be built there in future. The high court has given its judgment that there is Ram Janmabhoomi but some people are not agreeing to it and have moved the higher court. Every person in the country who thinks in the interest of the nation agrees that a temple should be built at Ram Janmabhoomi. But, the problem is with time,” said Nandakumar, who was in Lucknow on a two-day tour. “RSS has never believed in doing anything against law and order and other constitutional arrangements,” he added.

Speaking to The Indian Express, Nandakumar said while no discussion for fixing a deadline has taken place in the RSS, as far as the issue of tabling a bill in the Parliament was concerned, it was a matter associated with the government and not in the hands of RSS.

“The temple has already come up at the site but it is yet to be given a grander shape,” he added.

Kanchi Acharya Jayendra SaraswatiThe controversy associated with Ram temple began after a fresh lot of pink sandstones from Rajasthan arrived at Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s workshop in Ram Sevak Puram in Ayodhya on Sunday [Dec. 20th].

Following the development, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had held a meeting on Tuesday with top state officials. They were directed that effective measures be taken to ensure peace and harmony in the state.

  1. Blueprint for Ram Temple to be released in January? – Zee Media Bureau – Wednesday, December 30, 2015

    New Delhi: With the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in power, it is difficult to keep Ram Temple out of national politics.

    Minister of State for Culture and Tourism (Independent Charge) Mahesh Sharma on Tuesday added to the ongoing debate on Ram Temple and said that his party and the central government have already given their opinion on the issue that people of the country want the temple to be constructed as soon as possible.

    Sharma, however, added that the BJP will abide by the Supreme Court order in the matter.

    “We want Ram Mandir to be constructed, but we will be abiding by the order of the Supreme Court or will try to reach a mutual consent to construct the temple. That is why it’s taking time,” he said.

    Lending support to the Culture Minister, senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy tweeted on Wednesday that the blueprint for the Ram Temple will be released in January 2016.

    • When the Modi Sarkar can bypass the Supreme Court order banning Jallikattu by issuing an ordinance, why can’t it issue an ordinance acquiring the disputed Ram Janmabhumi land and take the matter out of the purview of the court altogether?

      When Minister of State for Culture and Tourism Mahesh Sharma says the government will abide by the Supreme Court’s order on the land dispute, he is assuming the NDA government will be in power twenty years hence when the matter may come up before the court!

      The minister is doing what all ministers do—playing for time until hopefully the contentious issue disappears off his ministerial screen.

      The government could allow the building of the Ram temple tomorrow if it wanted to. That is a fact. But unfortunately its mindset is still that of its predecessor, where the minority’s wishes ‘rule’ and the majority must meekly comply—making excuses for their compliance of course, to save face.

  2. Great Post. If someone wishes to build a temple, what is the controversy?
