Yogic Guru Baba Ramdev is quite controversial in his statements. We find him in all sorts of topics, sometimes speaking relevant and sometimes absurd. When it comes to population control, in a recent gathering of his, he had made strong statements too. But here once more he shocked everyone when he said this regarding the issue of Ayodhya Ram Temple. The unnecessary feud between the Muslims and Hindus of the nation is highlighted here.
In the State of Gujarat in a gathering, Yoga Guru Ramdev Baba has said that construction of the Ram temple in the city of Ayodhya is not just a religious issue. But, its construction is a matter of national pride. Wondering why is the guru giving so much importance to Hindu dominated nation?
The intention Guru meant was, The temple and the celebration of Lord Ram in the nation of India, is not just one religion matter. But also important for Muslims as well. Considering Ram the King to be the ancestor for the Indians, and not just fixed to one faith.
The event was held at Nadiad town in Kheda district, about 70 Kms from the city of Ahmedabad. Yoga guru was in interaction with the reporters when he said this. The answer was o the question of ‘whether this Ram Temple’ is part of vote-bank politics.
In a query on this Baba replies by saying, “ I firmly believe that Ram Mandir must be built in Ayodhya. If not in Ayodhya, where would you build it? It is obvious that it will not come up at Mecca, Madina or Vatican City. It is an undisputed fact that Ayodhya is Lord Ram’s birthplace. Not just Hindus, but Ram was the ancestor of Muslims too. This issue of Ram temple is all about the nation’s pride. It has nothing to do with vote bank politics“.
Opposing the claimed intention of Baba, a Congress spokesperson says, “ People like Baba Ramdev are the beneficiaries of the ruling BJP. Such Babas have once again come out to help the BJP and Modi government ahead of polls so that more benefits can be reaped for the next five years”.
