Stones Instead of Cash? Devotees send Stones from Rajasthan for Ram Temple in Ayodhya

Stones from Rajasthan, sent by bhakts of Lord Ram, have arrived in Ayodhya's Ram Temple

  • Stones from Bharatpur, Rajasthan have arrived in Ayodhya’s Ram Temple as donations
  • The 2,000 cubic feet stones have been donated by ‘Ram Bhakts’ for carving out structures in the temple 
  • The donation comes as an appeal from Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas who in 2015 requested stones instead of cash 

July 07, 2017: 2,000 cubic feet of stones have arrived in Ram Temple, Ayodhya on Wednesday in the form of donations from Bharatpur, Rajasthan. The stones are to be used for carving out proposed structures in the temple.

The 18 blocks of sandstones were delivered in three trucks. Sharad Sharma, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Spokesperson, stated that the donation in stones rather than cash came as Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas had appealed for the same from Ram’s followers all over the country in June 2015.

The whole consignment is presently kept at Ramsevakpuram of Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas, which is 500 meters from the VHP workshop. VHP is responsible for the carving of stones of the temple since 1990. Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas is an organization of VHP leaders and saints that will supervise the construction.

Previously, the Commercial Tax Department during the Samajwadi Party’s tenure had not allowed Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas to bring stones from Rajasthan. But with Yogi Adiyanath’s approval, the pending construction shall resume very soon.

This year in May, CM Yogi Adityanath became the first CM in over 15 years to visit the Ram Janmabhoomi, a disputed area with supporters of Babri Masjid.

Ayodhya’s case is a political agenda. There are also questions directed at VHP’s decision as Yogi Adityanath assumes power and the next Lok Sabha election 2019 is on its way. The All India Muslim Law Board has called this an “open contempt of the Supreme Court” and hace called for the ban of any further delivery.
