BJP doesn’t have patent on Ram temple, says Uma Bharti

Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) pioneer Uma Bharti said that her party does not have a patent on the Ram temple while calling all parties to meet up to build the temple in Ayodhya.

Addressing to the correspondents, Bharti praised Shiv Sena leader, Uddhav Thackeray, for visiting Ayodhya and pressing for the development of the temple.

The BJP leader said, “Yes, I appreciate Uddhav Thackeray for his effort. BJP doesn’t have a patent on Ram temple, Lord Ram belongs to everyone. I appeal to everyone including Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party, Akali Dal, Asaduddin Owaisi, Azam Khan and others to come forward and support the construction of the temple.”

Thackeray, who was on a visit to Ayodhya throughout the end of the week, emphasized his interest for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya and asked the BJP-driven central government not to play with the sentiments of the Hindus.

At a mega occasion, Thackeray included that the BJP should apologize and tell the people that the Ram temple issue is their 'chunavi jumla' (election gimmick).

In the midst of developing chorus for the construction of a Lord Ram temple, numerous political parties and profound spiritual leaders have requested that a law ought to be brought in

The Supreme Court, on October 29, had suspended the Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit till January 2019 to settle the following hearing date in the issue, challenging the Allahabad High Court decision of 2010. The Allahabad High Court in its 2010 decision had proposed a division of the debated land in Ayodhya - one for every one of the parties the Nirmohi Akhara, the Sunni Waqf Board and Ram Lalla.

Babri Masjid, known to have been constructed by Mughal emperor Babur in Ayodhya in 1528, was purportedly destroyed by conservative right-wing groups on December 6, 1992, who asserted that the mosque was built in the wake of devastating the Ram Temple to the ground.
