New Delhi: The entire Sangh Pariwar is once mobilized on the issue of Ram Temple when Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on reiterated his demand that the Narendra Modi government should enact a law for building the Ram temple in Ayodhya as the Supreme Court was not giving priority to the case.

Addressing the “Hunkar Sabha” organised at Nagpur by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), alongside with its grand religious congregation in Ayodhya for the Ram temple, Bhagwat also expressed his displeasure at the court’s delay in deciding the case, saying “justice delayed is justice denied.”

“If the apex court, either due to lack of time or due to its inability to understand the sentiments of the public, is failing to give priority to the case, it is up to the government to quickly bring a law for the construction of the temple,” he said. The decision on the temple case should come before the Lok Sabha elections, but it did not, he added.

Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekhar Azad Demands Ayodhya To Be Named As Saket

New Delhi: Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad said that he will visit the temple town on Monday to urge the authorities to ensure that the rule of law prevails. Referring to the renaming spree of the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh, he said the Yogi Adityanath dispensation should rechristen Ayodhya to Saket, claiming it was the “name of the area during the Buddhist time”.

“What is happening in Ayodhya right now is nothing but another attempt by the BJP and the Sangh Parivar to whip up communal frenzy, instigate violence and then use the bloodshed to polarise voters to benefit the party in the 2019 elections,” Azad alleged.

The chief of the Dalit outfit said, the country should be run according to the Constitution and whatever judgement the Supreme Court pronounces on Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit should be respected by all.
