Buddha temple should be constructed in Ayodhya: Bhim Army
Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad on Sunday claimed that Ayodhya should have a temple of Lord Buddha instead of Lord Ram. “The original name of the city was Saket, not Ayodhya,” he claimed. Azad said that he will visit Ayodhya on Monday with a copy of the Constitution to present it to the District Magistrate.
Earlier on Sunday, Sena chief visited the disputed site in Ayodhya. Addressing the media, he attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) terming Ram Mandir promise an ‘election jumla’. Claiming that there is no hidden agenda in his visit to Ayodhya, he said, “Shiv Sena will stand with Hindus and Hindutva.”
On the other hand, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat took a dig at the Supreme Court and asserted that the ‘society doesn’t run only with law, justice delayed is justice denied’. He also added that the nation needs to unite and demand for a law for Ram temple construction on the disputed site.
The All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) on Sunday wrote to President Ram Nath Kovind, seeking his urgent intervention into the developments in Ayodhya, where the VHP has organised a public meeting to press for construction of a Ram temple.
