Demolish Delhi’s Jama Masjid, hang me if idols are not found: Sakshi Maharaj

Bharatiya Janata Party’s Unnao MP Sakshi Maharaj has been an outspoken face of the BJP on a number of issues, including the Ram temple. His latest statement on Jama Masjid of Delhi has stirred the controversy

He said that he would be ready to be hanged if idols are not found below the staircase of the mosque.

As reported in the Indian Express, he said “Main rajniti mein jab aya to mera pehla statement tha Mathura mein… Ayodhya, Mathura, Kashi ko choro… Delhi ki Jama Masjid toro, agar siriyon mein murtiyan na mile to mujhe fansi pe latka dena. Aaj bhi main kayam hun.”

He said he expects the government to bring in a law like Somnath Temple for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya just before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

He asked, “When ordinance can be brought against triple talaq, why not on the Ram temple?”

He further stated that Mughals played with the sentiments of Hindus and constructed over 3000 mosques by demolishing temples.
