New Delhi: Bhartiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy on Sunday offered the ‘Lord Krishna’ package to the Muslim community saying that, ‘we Hindus want three temples, in return Muslims can keep 39,997 Mosques.

Swamy said that the construction of Ram temple should not be seen as a political agenda. He said that if they don’t put their agenda forward now, elections will come and media will say it is happening because of the elections. He said that one or other election is always around but that does not mean they should not work for it.

Swamy also slammed the protest against the Ram Janmobhoomi talk in Delhi University and termed the protest held by Congress’ student wing NSUI’s protest as ‘intolerance’.

In December 1992, various Hindu groups demolished more than 500 years old Babri Mosque in Ayodhya. Since then it has been a matter of controversy as according to Hindu legends Ayodhya is the birthplace of Lord Rama. BJP demanded the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.

In a ruling, Supreme Court of India in 2010 prohibited any new construction on the site. BJP before 2014 elections had said that if they get the full majority, they will construct the Ram temple. Recently their aide party Shiv Sena exerted pressure by asking for the dates of the construction.

A lot of people blame the BJP and Swamy for politicizing the issue as the assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh are coming closer.

The ‘intellect’ of the country, however, has a selective approach about on which matter to speak. Recent Malda riots are the example of this selective approach where the incident was completely ignored by the media. (Image: janpratinidhi.com)

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government of being anti-Dalit and said his party will defeat the BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Gandhi, who led his party’s day-long fast at Rajghat to highlight atrocities against Dalits and other communities, said party workers were protesting against an ideology, a way of thinking.

Rahul Gandhi is against Modi and his rule.

“The atmosphere that has been created in the country, it is due to the ideology of the BJP. BJP’s ideology is to divide the country, crush the Dalits, tribals, minorities. We are against the ideology of the BJP. We are standing against it today, we will stand against it throughout our lives. And we will defeat them in the 2019 elections,” Gandhi told reporters.

Asked about BJP Dalit MPs writing to Modi with their complaints, Gandhi said: “You talk to them in Parliament. They also tell us that Modiji is a casteist person, an anti-Dalit person. He has no place for Dalits in his heart, the whole country knows this. It is not a secret.”

Gandhi attacked BJP President Amit Shah for likening the coming together of opposition parties to “snakes, mongoose, dogs and cats” climbing a tree trunk to save themselves from floods. He said every person in the country was against the BJP.

“Some days back a BJP leader said that opposition members were animals. The truth is that today every person in the country is standing against the government. The approach that this government has against Dalits, tribals, minorities and farmers, we are standing against it,” he said. Gandhi said the country will not accept that Modi government “spreads violence, hatred in the country… We are standing here against this ideology.”
