The temple in Ayodhya was demolished by the Muslim community outside India. Indian nationals can’t do such a thing,” Bhagwat said.
The root of Indian culture will be cut if Ram Temple not rebuilt
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat said the “root of our culture will be cut” if the Ram temple in Ayodhya is not rebuilt.
He was speaking at a Viraat Hindu Sammelan at Dahanu in adjoining Palghar district.
Speaking at a rally in Palghar district, the RSS chief said, “The temple, which was demolished by the Muslim based outside India, it is now the responsibility of the people to restore the demolished temple, where it originally stood.
“The temple in Ayodhya was demolished by the Muslim community outside India. Indian nationals can’t do such a thing,” Bhagwat said
“It is our responsibility to restore what was demolished within the country. The temple should be built where it actually was. We are ready to fight for it,” he added.
The Babri Masjid, built by Mughal emperor Babur in Ayodhya in 1528, was on December 6, 1992, demolished by Hindu Karsevaks, claiming that the Ram temple that originally stood there was demolished to construct the mosque.
He also attacked Opposition parties and claimed they were responsible for the caste violence across India. “Those whose shops have been shut [who have lost elections] are inciting people to fight on issues of caste,” Bhagwat said.
Meanwhile, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s new president Vishnu Sadashiv Kokje said on Sunday, soon after he was elected to the post, that the organisation’s main goal will continue to be the rebuilding of the temple in Ayodhya, according to India Today.
