Secularists biggest hurdle for Ram temple: Singhal
VHP president Ashok Singhal on Wednesday termed "so called secularists" as the biggest hurdle in construction of a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya and said if a
proposal to this effect is brought in Parliament it would get support of MPs from all political parties.
"I have full confidence that if a proposal for construction of Ram temple is brought in Parliament it will get support of MPs from all the parties and Muslim members too. The problem over the issue has been started by so called secularists," Singhal said here.
The VHP leader, who also inspected the workshop where the carving work of stones for the proposed Ram temple has recently resumed, said last year`s Allahabad High Court
decision has further strengthened the confidence of Hindus as Lord Ram has always brought people together.
The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court in its judgement in the Ayodhya title suit said Hindus and Muslims are joint title holders and ruled that there be a three-way
division of the disputed land - one-third for the Sunni Waqf Board, one-third for the Nirmohi Akhara and one-third to the party for `Ram Lalla`.
Singhal also criticised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for stating that Muslims have the first right over the country and termed it as vote bank politics.
This trend would not help anyone and eventually prove to be harmful for the country, he said adding that Ram temple movement has changed the politics of the country.
