VHP president Shri Ashok Singhal described the comments made by Congress president Sonia Gandhi about the High Court verdict on Sri Ramjanma-bhoomi and also the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) at the AICC meeting in Delhi as ‘unbecoming’.
In a statement issued in New Delhi on November 4, Shri Singhal said the disputed site at Ayodhya has been unanimously accepted by the Lucknow Bench of Allahabad High Court as Sri Ramjanmabhoomi-the nativity site of Sri Ram. “Repeatedly calling it ‘Babri Masjid’ by Smt. Sonia Gandhi points to a deep conspiracy. Perhaps Smt. Sonia Gandhi and her Congress are not able to digest the post-verdict state of peace in the country, and they are provoking the Muslims of the country. In the post-verdict times when the path of solution has progressed a bit, Soniaji should have talked of establishing cordial relations between Hindus and the Muslim community. I urge upon the so-called secular groups of the country to take note of the fact that it is certainly a contempt of court to call the nativity site of Sri Ram as “Babri Masjid” as the site has already been proved to be Sri Ramjanmabhoomi by the Court of Law, and such attitude of the seculars nevertheless hurts the Hindu sentiments also,” Shri Singhal added in the statement.
He said the event of December 6, 1992 is involved directly in two criminal trials and the matter is subjudice. Reminders of this episode and repeated threats of bringing vengeance on Ram devotees create suspicions in the mind of the Hindu society that it is through such statements Soniaji is trying to influence the court proceedings, he said.
“In the name of ‘saffron terrorism/Hindu terrorism’, it reminds us how on the eve of Deepavali night a few years ago, acting on a nod from Soniaji, a pro-Sonia Chief Minister arrested Shankaracharya Maharaj of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham from Mahboob Nagar, Andhra Pradesh on framed charges of murder, and ever since such unsubstantiated and propagandist allegations are being heaped on the Hindu forces. Soniaji is also demolishing her own prestige and credibility by trying to demolish the image of patriotism and social service of RSS workers that hold a loving space in the national psyche for decades now. It is a pre-meditated conspiracy that again on the eve of Deepavali, Sangh office-bearers are being framed and legal proceedings initiated against them by misusing the CBI and other government agencies. Soniaji has been striking at the roots of Bharatiya culture by heaping fabricated allegations on our saints and Hindu organisations and in the process attracting more and more suspicion about her motives and intentions. She must not forget that the society would never forgive her,” he said in the statement.
