Cong: No Ram temple in Ayodhya unless consensus or court verdict

Mumbai: A Dalit writer today slammed the BJP and its ally Shiv Sena for their stand on the Ramjanmabhoomi at Ayodhya, while staking claim on the disputed land.


Addressing a news conference here, along with former MP and RPI leader Ramdas Athawale, Krisha Gamre, the author of 'Buddha's Saket No Ayodhya No Babri Masjid', said mythology cannot be accepted as historical truth and evidence. The disputed site was Saket of Buddha, he informed.


He lashed out at BJP chief Nitin Gadkari for his appeal to the Muslims to vacate the Ramjanmabhoomi and help building Ram temple.


Gamre also criticised Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray's for his claim that Gadkari's statement was an insult to the Hindutva agenda.


Gamre, who is the founder of Ambedkarite Social and Buddhist Movement and international coordinator of Indo-SriLankan Buddhist Association, said the disputed area should be converted and a Hindu temple, Muslim mosque and a Buddha vihara be constructed.


He said in 1992 when Muslim and Hindu groups filed cases before Faizabad and Lucknow courts, late Savita Ambedkar filed a plea on behalf of Bharatiya Buddha Darshan Sar Society, saying that the Buddhists are the true heirs to the disputed land.


Meanwhile, from October 14, thousands of members of the Buddhist community would march from Nagpur's deekshabhoomi and would reach Ayodhya on December 6, the anniversary of the demolition of the Babri structure. It would be called 'Ashoka Rath Yatra' and they would approach Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati for her support to their cause.
