NEW DELHI: The temple town of Ayodhya turned into a fortress ahead of the November 25 ‘dharma Sabha,’ the largest ever congregation of saints and seers since 1992.
Defying the prohibitory orders at the disputed area on Thursday, Vishwa Hindu Parishad held a road show that also passed through Muslim-dominated localities of Faizabad, reported Times Of India.
The gathering of activists belonging to the Maharashtra-based Shiv Sena and the RSS-affiliated Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and other organisations to raise the pitch for the Union government brought an ordinance for a Ram temple.
Wary of the large gathering, Section 144 CrPC has been clamped at the entire disputed area in Ayodhya and Faizabad and ban the saffron forces’ carrying cameras, sticks and arms.
People in the two towns threatened to migrate due to “fear and feeling of insecurity”.
Bajrang Dal activists lead the showing raising slogans of “Ram Lalla hum aaye hain, mandir wahin banayenge, “We are now going for a war for Ramjanambhoomi,” said VHP leader Bholendra Singh.
