New Delhi: Amidst protests from student unions and teachers’ associations, Subramanian Swamy spoke on the construction of Ram Temple at Ayodhya on Saturday.
Recalling the days of former PM Rajiv Gandhi, Swamy claimed that even Gandhi had been in favour of building a temple at Ayodhya. “Rajiv Gandhi had told me that Ram temple will be made in Ayodhya. He had said ‘I will lend all possible support’. He allowed Ramayana to be telecast on TV, despite protest from his own party. He also gave permission for laying the foundation stone of the temple,” Swamy said.
Swamy, who has been constantly targeting Rajiv’s wife Sonia Gandhi, was quick to add, “Sometimes a good person can also have a bad wife.”
Swamy, who pursued the 2G spectrum case and the National Herald case, added, “I had said that D Raja will go to jail. I had also said that the Setu Samundran project will get cancelled. I have said something in the National Herald case, I know that too will happen,” he said. Swamy has been saying that both Sonia and Rahul Gandhi will be jailed for misappropriation of funds in the National Herald case.
Swamy was speaking at a two-day seminar on ‘Shri Ram Janam Bhoomi Temple: Emerging Scenario’ organised byArundhati Vashishtha Anusandhan Peeth
(AVAP) at Delhi University’s Arts faculty. AVAP is a research organisation founded by late VHP stalwart Ashok Singhal.
Swamy also added that the path of Ram temple, will lead to the revival and reconstruction of the Krishna temple at Mathura and Kashi Vishwanath at Banaras.
The BJP leader further claimed that Muslims call Lord Ram the Imam-e-Hind. He said that it is the Sunni Waqf Board that is delaying the temple construction process. “The mosque inside the temple premises is taken care off by the Shia Muslims, but the Sunni Waqf Board has moved courts.
