A massive public programme was held under the aegis of Hanumatshakti Jagran Samiti at NTR Stadium of Hyderabad where thousands of devotees recited the Hanuman Chalisa on the evening of November 27.
Pujya Shri Tridandi Srimannarayana Ramanuja Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji while speaking on the occasion called for the cooperation and support of Sri Ram devotees for the construction of the Temple reminding them that even God needs support of the devotees. He cited the example by quoting Ramayana where Sri Ram Himself sought the support of Sugriva. He said the construction of a grand temple in Ayodhya is not merely the desire of Indians but of the entire mankind across the world.
Many senior saints and seers from different parts of the state were present on the dais. Swami Satyapadananda Prabhuji said dharma is the heart and soul of Bharat. “Those wedded to dharma alone are true followers of Bharatiya heritage. The purpose of today’s programme is to rekindle the spirit, which was hurt due to humiliation when Sri Ram temple in Ayodhya was demolished by invader Babar. We need devotion, strength and strategy to fulfill the desire of millions of devotees to have a grand Sri Ram temple,” he said.
VHP president Shri Ashok Singhal while speaking on the occasion mentioned that centuries back Sri Ram temple in Ayodhya was demolished by Muslim invaders. “At that very site, idols of Sri Ramlalla appeared. On September 30, 2010, judgement of the Court was delivered confirming that disputed site as the birthplace of Sri Ram. According to this verdict the site has to be divided into 3 parts and given to 3 parties-Ramlalla, Waqf Board and Nirmohi Akhada, equally. In reality the entire land should go to Ramlalla. For that Ramlalla will go to Supreme Court. Sri Ram never suffered defeat. As per the decision taken in the meeting of saints at Haridwar Kumbh, for four months Hanuman Chalisa recitation was conducted two lakh times due to which judgement came in favour of Sri Ram. Next, massive public meetings will take place throughout the country,” he said.
He further said Sonia Gandhi is determined to spoil the Hindu dharma in the country. Conspiracy is being hatched to demolish the dharma and culture of the country. Attacks that are taking place on the saints and seers of the country, are result of this evil design. Cases beginning from arrest of Swami Jayendra Saraswati of Kanchi till the recent dragging of Shri Indreshji of RSS into the controversy are indications of it. Smt Indira Gandhi imposed Emergency in the country, but she had to pay for it heavily later, he added.
Shri Ashok Singhal reiterated that Muslim society has to handover the Ram Janmabhoomi to Hindus completely. Eighty per cent of Muslims desire Sri Ram temple at Ayodhya. The Government has to cooperate by bringing a legislation in the Parliament for Ram Temple. He said he has full confidence that Ram temple would be built there.
Pujya Chinna Jeeyar Swamy mentioned that God would come down to reform those erring and going astray. “A devotee performs puja in a temple and forgetting selfishness prays for the welfare and happiness of the entire mankind. God will shower His blessings to such devotees. In a similar way Sri Ram knowing that mankind identify Him as God will shower His blessings for the construction of Ram Temple. Sarayu is a sacred river in Ayodhya where Sri Ram was born. Sri Ram visualised love in the birds, animals, vanaras, humans and even Rakshasas. Hanuman has capacity to change the mind of even an enemy. We are praying Hanuman to give that power to us. It is for that objective that we are reciting Hanuman Chalisa. Time has come for gathering strength to protect dharma. Sri Ram’s arrow will return only after fulfilling the purpose. Responsibility rests on all of us today to convert ourselves as arrows of Sri Ram. Thus we should shoulder the responsibility of building a grand temple for Sri Ram,” he said. He further said that building of Sri Ram temple is not merely the desire of Indians but of the people of the world and with this the world would witness peace.
Shri Bhagaiyaji, Akhil Bharatiya Bauddhik Pramukh of RSS, while speaking on the occasion mentioned that Kashmir is part of India and for six lakh Kashmiris the Central Government is spending 15 thousand crore rupees but for 2.5 crore people of Assam only 10 thousand crore rupees are allocated. Till today there are no voting rights for the dalit Hindus of Kashmir and this is an ample proof of discrimination shown to many Hindus.
The other saints who spoke on the occasion included Pujya Shri Sangram Maharaj of Pabbati Anjaneya Swamy Devasthanam and Pujya Shri Srinivas Vratadhar Swamy. (VSK, Hyderabad)
