Help us Build Ram Temple, Gadkari tells Muslims


Indore, Feb 18 (PTI) Raking up the party's pet issue, BJP President Nitin Gadkari today spoke of its commitment to building a "grand" Ram temple in Ayodhya and appealed to the Muslims to "offer a perfect solution" by being generous towards the sentiments of Hindus.

"The BJP stands fully committed for the construction of a grand Ram temple at Ayodhya...Litigation is also pending for resolution of this dispute which may not offer a perfect solution because one party would lose and the other may win.

"Today I appeal to the Muslim community to be generous towards the sentiments and feelings of Hindus and facilitate the construction of a grand Ram temple," he said in his Presidential Address at the two-day National Council of the BJP here.

    Mr Sudhir,Kundapur/USA, I think I know the answer to your question. The person responsible for reopening the gates of Ram Janma Bhoomi is Rajiv Gandhi. He did this to balance the favour shown towards the Muslims in Shah Bhano case.

    There is nothing wrong in what Gadkari has told to the media, he wanted to be polite to Muslims. But you know what happens when u kneel in front of others ... they take thier chances ... the same thing happened, i think the indian govt. has given too many chances to muslims by stating them as minority this has to be taken out and equality has to prevail. only then everything will be properly placed ....

    Let the wicked people of the society (politicians) play with the emotional feelings of poor innocent people. My dear friends you can only put your comments or suggestions in this blog but that will only end up with no result. Issues like, kashmir,ram mandir,babri masjid, ayodhya, communal riots and so called terrorism etc, are the bloody handiworks of those (politicians & alliance) bloody vampires.

    I swear by Allah, if not in this world but heareafter they will be brutally uted by Almighty Allah on the day of Judgement, that day is called Judgement day, there will be only one ruler and one verdict....be prepared. Please do not follow the blame game policy. Think & Act.

    Mr Gadkari are u still in the west side of India- Just travel to U.P. there are 100's of Ram Temples (exist) in U.P. Even Ayodhya has many Ram Temples. Why don't u help the existing temples , with all the money collected to build the new one, instead of building the new one at the place once 400 year old Babri Masjid was standing. There was 'Kabarsthan' of muslims in that place-do u feel Ram Lalla will come there if u build the temple in such a place. Instead build the temple to Ram in every Indian's Heart.
    Mr Ram/Ayodhya!- Ram Exists in Rahim, Ali exists in Divali u cannot take one & leave the other. Stop Day Dreaming-Without Muslims Help U will not be able to build Ram Mandir for another 100 years. Rmember "Kumbaranige Varusha, Donnege Nimisha".

    Jude,

    Actually if you read the newspapers of that time the request was actually made before the demolition happened. VHP and BJP leaders contacted the prominent leaders of Muslim community including Imam Bhukhari. They asked the muslim leaders to peacefully allow them to construct the temple at the site and they will relocate Babri Structure (cannot call it mosque because no namaz offered there)

    The request was squarely rejected and rest you know is history.

    Heres a pop quiz for you - Who opened the gates of the of Ram Janmabhoomi temple and allowed Poojas to be performed there?? Hint: He is not from BJP

    It is a consensual political statemnt from BJP President is a positive thinking of BJP to solve the Masjid-Mandir problem.If this issue solves and sooths enemity between Hindus and Muslims,both parties sit together and solve it amicably.I think for the interst of our great nation we should keep aside our egos and come together as brothers and work together for the unity of our country.

    If the Ayodya place is showing the signs of a Hindu temple in the past, in my opinion an amicable solution should be discovered round the table amongst Hindus and Muslims so that peace shall prevail. How to discover a Ram Janma Bhoomi or a temple was existed. My suggestion is to employ independent archeologists neither from India nor from Pakistan either from Bangladesh rather westerners should find out archeological evidence/proof or Hindus and Muslims themselves agree for independent archeologists from our own country will do. This should have been done before the campaign of the mosque demolishment. If both the communities agree now itself to build both a temple and a mosque archeologists are not required. I do not agree to have a grand masjid as Mr. Shahanavaz suggests and if Hindus agree to provide great grand masjid also I have no objection.

    There was a cemetery belonging to Christians adjacent to the present KSRTC bus stand at Puttur. The Church priests and the management had an amicable solution and handed over to the Municipality. The remains/the bones of the deceased were collected and buried by the side of the same location and a cross was erected. This was done because when a permanent grave to be erected/build, the family members of the deceased are paying a lump-sum amount to the Church. Hence the remains were buried again by the side as a sign of their legal payment.

    Gadkariji why you did not think about Muslim sentiments when the Masjid was demolished ? Why suddenly you thought about only Hindu sentiments now ? Muslims are not human beings ? Build houses for poor which will fetch you votes for the next elections in 2014 instead of Temple. Lord Krishna will bless you. Yesterday I saw in TV Gadkari singing, Chauhan singing and Sushma and Advaniji enjoying the singing of their New president. As Razak said is it the time to sing now when the whole country is suffering due to Price rise. What Gadkari wanted to show Indians ? He could have been a Singer like Kishore Kumar than being a President of BJP ? It was like a Tamasha going on in Indore yesterday. So ugly it was looking. These are our Political Leaders and Opposition Party who want to rule our country. What we can expect from these people. Did anyone went to Pune where there was Bomb blast last week as Razak said. If elections were there they would have gone.

    Mr. Gadkari,

    Please be quite and don't even think in your dreams. We know that about your dirty thinking. You want to divert attention of Hindus and you people only (BJP,RSS,SS, BDAL)spoil the religious harmony. These people should put behind bars permanently while giving such dangerous statements in public. these people's anti social elements. If any riot happens in India that is only due to such peoples. I respect all the religions but i strongly condemn communal peoples.

    I completely agree with Jude that the solution to the entire issue would have been in place had both the communities joined hands before the problem was caused...

    I agree also with Shahnawaz when he says that let there be a temple and a mosque...

    But Lydia.. i feel that your statements are not right as Hindu places of worship from ages have been distroyed by the Moghuls in their thirst to build mosques over them.All our beautiful structures are attributed to Moghul architecture!!. hw many live examples for this are still available from History. which will be sealed by the archeological servey of India!!

    Hindus dont have to build a temple over any other religious structure,, just leave our place for us thats all thats been asked..

    this is one country.. i wish every religion would be let to have their place of worship, right to worship and right to relgion.. which is jst crippling these days..

Now his chela is behind the same agenda but asking the favour from Muslim Community. Vah re BJP.? What a policy you all have!. Go behind building Temples and not helping and serving People of this country.

    This is a step forward by the BJP president, who ahs realised that without the co operation of Indian muslims, they cant fulfil the election manifesto promised to the nation. Well said. I also agree, court decission may favour one party and disappoint other. There should be a middle path. In return will BJP build a grand masjid for muslims? If the answer is yes, then let them build a grand masjid first and handover to muslims only after obtaining written guarantees from muslim community that they would withdraw all litigation and allow BJP to build a temple.

    Both the temple and masjids are built to worship one God. This is my personal observation and I am one amongst the members of muslim community of this nation. I am sure court would not give its verdict and will continue to maintain statusquo fearing the communual fall out of such a verdict. I agree the creation of Pakistan was a historical mistake. Like the birth of Pak, many a nations were born thereafter and have been recognised by international community. I wish India would have been Brihat Bharath. I ask all senes operating in India, against the minorities, to come together, go the Indo Pak border and fight with Pak, defeat them and annex it to India, a move we all support and we are ready to finance them for logistics requirement. They dare not. They take pleasure in attacking Indian muslims and christians. Mr Gadkari, your policy of devide and rule will remain only on paper and dont dream about forminga theocratic .

    Look at this man - his predecessors cut Muslims' one hand by destroying the Babri-Mosque now this man is asking them to donate the other hand by contributing to build the temple there.

    Mr. Gadkari, now that the places of worship is your property to break (and build yours on that place), why don't you trade a very disputed but (recently cleared) Idga Maidan to build a mosque ? Give with one hand and take with the other ? See waht Yeddy Govt. got to say about this ?

    Nintin is begging Muslims to allow them to build a Temple and to be generous on Hindus sentiments but why BJP did not think about Muslims sentiments when they pulled down the 400 years old structure in 1992 ? Only Hindus got sentiments, others don't have. Why cow slaughtering Ban was enforced in Karnataka ? Why BJP Government did not think about Muslims sentiments ? Gadkari please answer these questions ? Your foolish to plead Muslims now to allow them to build a Temple. Gadkari you are shameless. Think about poor people and ROTI, KAPADA and MAKAN. Temple is not important at this juncture. You are having a nice PICNIC in INDORE singing. What concern you have on poor. This not the time to enjoy. Did you go to POONA, where blast took place few days ago ? What President you are ? Tomorrow you will land in PUNE if elections are there begging for votes folding you hands like a saint. Instead you people are enjoying in INDORE, singing. hats off to you Gadkari. Nice President BJP has chosen. Keep it up.
