Ram temple construction may begin before next Diwali: Swamy

Jaipur: BJP MP Subramanian Swamy expressed optimism that the construction of Ram temple would begin in Ayodhya by next Diwali. He said an atmosphere in favour of Ram temple was being created. Swamy was speaking at a conference, Jaipur Dialogue Forum, here on Monday.

Swamy is an intervenor in the petition challenging the Allahabad High Court decision on the Ayodhya land dispute in Supreme Court, claiming that his right to worship in the temple is being hampered by the long drawn-out court case on Ayodhya.

In its last hearing, the Supreme Court had fixed December 5 this year for the next hearing on appeals relating to the Ram Janmabhoomi case.

The Apex court had granted three months’ time to translate historic documents required for hearings.

The hearings are likely to be completed by March and the judgment could be pronounced by July-August next year, Swamy said, claiming that the verdict would be in favour of Ram temple.

Ruling out the possibility of any compromise solution to the Ayodhya dispute at this stage, he said, “A court verdict is the ideal solution to the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi dispute at this stage.”

“I know some sections of the Muslim community are in favor a compromise solution but they are not likely to culminate in any agreement fearing allegations of a sellout,” he said.

He added that the Shias were very clear and do not insist on this land but the Sunni Muslims would not agree with them.

Swamy was reacting to the recent initiative by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar who held talks with Muslim leaders in Lucknow to find a compromise formula to resolve the long standing dispute.

“There can’t be any compromise on the three-acre land of Ram Janmabhoomi where the idol of Ram Lalla is now placed,” he said. A mosque could be constructed outside this three-acre land, he said. But the masjid can be built at any place where the Muslim population is a majority.

BOX: Swamy on ‘Padmavati’

Reacting to the controversy over film ‘Padmavati’, Swamy alleged films like ‘Padmavati’, ‘PK’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’ were part of a conspiracy hatched by the Dawood Ibrahim gang. “They finance these films to paint the Islamic rulers as benevolent and are part of a conspiracy to influence the youth,” he said. He said that not only Rajputs but all Hindus were agitated by the alleged distortion.
