BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has warned that if the Centre or Uttar Pradesh government tries to oppose the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya, he would “topple the government.”
While addressing a gathering at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) he said, “If our matter (Ram temple) is listed in January, we’ll win it in two weeks. Because my two opposing parties are the central government and Uttar Pradesh government. Do they have the guts to oppose me? If they do, I’ll topple the government. Though I know that they won’t do it.”
He said, “Sunni Waqf Board filed a case claiming that the land that was captured by Mughal ruler Babar is ours. They never said that they want to re-construct Babri. They just said it’s our title. Hindu parties like Ram Janmbhoomi Vyas and Nirmohi Akhada said that there were two temples of which they were trustees, and should be given to them. The Allahabad High Court heard their suit and said it’s Ram Janmbhoomi, two gumbads will go to Hindus, one to Muslims.”
“The Muslims I meet personally tell me that they will not have any objection on the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.”
On December 6, 1992, the Babri Masjid was demolished by the group of Hindu activists, claiming that the mosque was constructed after demolishing a Ram Temple.
Since then, many hearings have been taken place in the apex court to resolve the issue. The Supreme Court in October adjourned the Ayodhya title suit till January 2019 to fix the date of hearing in the matter.
