The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has praised PM Modi’s statements on the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya and termed it a “positive development”. On the other hand VHP shares different opinion.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government is not going to promulgate an ordinance for the Ram Mandir and will wait for the Supreme Court verdict on the same, PM Modi said during an interview with the news agency ANI on Tuesday (Jan 1).
“Let the judicial process be over. After the judicial process is over, whatever will be our responsibility as the government, we are ready to make all efforts,” he said.
The ardent supporters of Hinduism are not satisfied with the PM’s remark. The views of RSS and VHP vary over the construction of Ram Mandir. The members of VHP have made it clear that they will not wait for infinite.
The people who are eagerly waiting for the government to announce the date of Ram Mandir’s construction will have to wait for some more time as PM Modi has cleared it in his statement.
APN in its popular debate show, Mudda has chosen this topic for discussion with Anchorperson Anant Tyagi along with Tahira Hasan (Muslim Scholar), KK Shukla (Sangh member), Congress leader Saif Khan, BJP leader Dinesh Singh, Hindu thinker Jitendra Khurana and APN consultant Govind Pant Raju.
Dinesh Singh was the first to start discussion and said “Earlier people were saying that PM Modi remains silent over ‘Ram Mandir’ issue and when PM has said something, again they are having problem. PM Modi has not said anything debatable, he has just said that the party will wait for the Supreme Court’s decision and will think over it, and then only further decisions will be taken.”
Saif Khan was the second to speak and said “BJP is master in making manifesto but has always failed when commitment comes, and again PM Modi’s statement over Ram Mandir has proved the same.”
Jitendra Khurana was the third to speak and said “PM Modi’s statement over ‘Ram Mandir’ is not in favour of Hindu’s as it is clear from what he said on the issue during his interview with ANI”
KK Shukla said “PM Modi has given his statement on Ram Mandir, keeping in mind his post and position and he knows the difference between ‘justice and injustice’. He has faith in Supreme Court and said exactly what he was supposed to say.”
Govind Pant Raju said “PM Modi has not said anything wrong over Ram Mandir issue and has just given respect to Supreme Court, what the apex court deserves.”
Tahira Hasan said “Being a PM, Modi ji gave importance to Supreme Court by his remarks on ‘Ram Mandir’ as he knows very well the significance of Constitution and the apex court.”
Saif Khan said “PM Modi has disappointed the followers of Hinduism and they are not happy with the PM’s remarks on Ram Mandir construction”.
Dinesh Singh said “Congress party, who was earlier, heard speaking against the construction of Ram Mandir is now criticizing PM Modi in the name of the temple’s construction.”
Govind Thakur said “PM Modi has not said that he will not pass the ordinance but he said, will wait for the Supreme Court’s decision.”
Tahira Hasan said “Politicians must not make false promises as it hurts the sentiments of the people and the same case is being witnessed here as one cannot deny that the people of Ayodhya and the supporters of Hinduism is emotionally touched with Lord Ram and they are disappointed with the delay.”
After hearing the leaders of different political parties and other guests it has come to our knowledge that most of the guests didn’t feel that PM Modi has made any wrong statement over the construction of Ram Mandir, excluding Congress party representative. At the same time it cannot be denied that PM’s remark has somewhere hurt the religious sentiments of the VHP members.
