Advani's love for Ram Temple revives

Pardon us, If this is the Ram Rajya: Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) while releasing the party manifesto on Friday April 3, 2009 reaffirmed its faith in Ram Rajya. ‘If there's a definition of an ideal state in India it has been the idea of Ram Rajya’, the BJP leaders have reportedly asserted. It was not surprising to see the party coming .... Read Full

BABRI MASJID:  Can Muslims give away this  place?

Ahmedabad: Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha L.K. Advani, who is facing humiliation and dissent from his own party, on Friday tries to re-open the Babri Masjid issue once again.


"People in the country would be “happy and satisfied” only when a decent temple came up at 'Lord Ram’s birthplace' in Ayodhya", Advani said in Ahmedabad while speaking with the media at Somnath after his annual visit to the temple there.


Advani has been visiting the Somnath temple on September 25 every year since 1990. September 25 is the day when he had launched Ram Janmabhoomi Rath Yatra in 1990. The Yatra had allegedly resulted in dividing the nation on communal lines, and finally in demolition of the Babri Masjid.

Moreover, the communal riots in various parts of the country that followed the Babri Masjid demolition had killed hundreds of people. However, Advani, believes, September 25 is the day that changed the course of the BJP.


Advani said he wished, the present government at the Centre adopted the same attitude to the Ram temple issue, as did the Delhi government to the Somnath temple soon after Independence. The Delhi government allowed reconstruction at the same spot where the old temple "plundered by Muslim invaders".


Saffron leaders unimpressed

However, Advani's attempt to impress the saffron leaders by raising the temple issue once again failed when another visitor to the city, former BJP leader K.N. Govindacharya, said Advani’s retirement from active politics was “long overdue.”


Way back in 2005 when the BJP was celebrating the silver jubilee, he suggested to Advani that he make a “graceful exit” from public life as did the former Prime Minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee.


"I had also suggested Advani that the BJP be disbanded or handed over to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) for a revamp", said
