Unity between Hindus, Muslims shouldn’t be disturbed: Athawale

Chandigarh (Punjab): Union Minister Ramdas Athawale believes that it is not right to demand an ordinance for the construction Ram Temple and said that the unity between the Hindu and Muslim community should not be disturbed.

“My party’s stand is that unity between Hindus and Muslims shouldn’t be disturbed. If the decision is taken for Temple then the decision should be taken for Mosque as well. I think the demand for an ordinance that is being done is not right,” Athawale said.

His statement comes after Swami Chakrapani, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat and a delegation of saints associated with the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) earlier asked the Central Government to bring an ordinance in this regard.

The Supreme Court had on Monday adjourned the Ayodhya title suit till January 2019 to fix the date of hearing in the matter. The top court adjourned the matter which challenged the Allahabad High Court ruling of 2010, which had ordered division of the disputed land in Ayodhya into three parts for each of the parties — the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.
