CPM condemns BJP's 'anti-national' Raja Singh's remark on Ram Mandir


According to Singh, such Dalits malign the name of others in the community, who are patriotic and religious.

The latest such utterance came today from Raja Singh, a BJP legislator from Hyderabad. It is our pledge to build a Ram temple in Ayodhya and we will abide by it. The incident triggered nationwide violence that left hundreds dead.

"Some people are saying that they will create ruckus if Ram Mandir is built in Ayodhya".

But a legislator of the party from Hyderabad said the temple will be built in Ayodhya, and issued an open threat to "behead" all those who were opposed to it.

Union Minister Uma Bharti on Saturday said the Ram Temple in Ayodhya is a matter of faith and she was ready to go to jail or even die for it if she has to. The BJP put the issue as one of the important subjects in their poll manifesto for Uttar Pradesh. He called it "baap ki sarkaar (my father's government)". He has been booked under Section 295-A of the IPC (deliberate and malicious acts meant to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs).

Dabeerpura inspector D Venkanna Naik said."We have registered the case after legal opinion".

In the purported video Singh is seen saying, "The day is not far".

The chorus for building a Ram temple is growing within the BJP as more and more outrageous public utterances by party workers suggest. "With the case of title deed still to be settled in the apex court, Raja Singh's statements are contempt of court", he said in the police complaint.

The MBT alleged that Singh had openly taunted the Muslims: "Tum Hamara Pair Pakadloo, Kahi Na Kahi Hum Tumhara Babar Ki Masjid Banadengeh" (You touch our feet, we shall consider construction of Babri Masjid at some place or the other). He said despite all this hate speech, the police didn't stop him.

Singh accused Vijayan of remaining silent on the attacks on Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh workers in Kerala.

"If cows are trashed in a vehicle it is known where they are taken to".
