Ayodhya Land Dispute: Giriraj Singh says Hindus are losing their patience on the Ram temple issue
Union Minister of State for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader, Giriraj Singh on Monday said that Hindus are losing their patience on the Ram temple issue and feared that anything could happen in the country. Speaking to news agency ANI, the BJP leader said, “Ab Hinduon ka sabr tut raha hai. Mujhe bhay hai ki Hinduon ka sabr tuta toh kya hoga. (The patience of Hindus is waning. I fear what could happen if Hindus lose their patience).” He was one of the first to react after a Supreme Court bench led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi adjourned the matter on the Ayodhya land dispute case till 2019 saying that an urgent hearing in the case was not required.
On the other hand, The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) party president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi government to bring an ordinance on Ram. "Why don't they bring it (ordinance on Ram temple)? Let them do it," he said.
Why don't they bring it (ordinance on Ram temple)? Let them do it. Every time they are threatening that they will bring an ordinance. Every Tom, Dick & Harry of BJP, RSS, VHP says this. Do it. You are in power. I challenge you to do it. Let us see: Asaduddin Owaisi, AIMIM pic.twitter.com/XXXG4xQLtE— ANI (@ANI) October 29, 2018
Saying that the BJP does not link the Ram temple with elections, Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the court had given its order earlier also, "now one party has moved the Supreme Court again. A lot of people want an early hearing. That is all I have to say."
Meanwhile, Bajrang Dal leader Vinay Katiyar questioned why wasn't the apex court hearing the case on a daily basis. Alleging that Congress was pressurising the top court, Katiyar said as quoted by News18, "It seems that everything is happening due to pressure by Congress and that these dates are because Kapil Sibal and Prashant Bhushan do not want it to be heard daily."
RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) chief Mohan Bhagwat had also demanded a law for the construction of Ram temple in Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya. Bhagwat had said that politics is delaying the constructing of the temple.
In his annual Vijayadashami address in Maharashtra’s Nagpur, the RSS chief said, “The government should clear the path for construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya through an appropriate and requisite law. The temple construction was necessary from the ‘self-esteem point of view’ and it will also pave way for an atmosphere of goodwill and oneness.”
