Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Ayodhya | Oct 4, 2018:: Popular Hindu saint, Swami Paramhans Das, Mahant of Tapaswi Chhawni temple in Ayodhya, started an indefinite hunger strike on Monday (1st Oct) demanding early construction of Ram Temple at the Ram Janmabhoomi (the sacred birth place of Lord Ram). The indefinite fasting falls on fourth day.
Mahant said that he will continue his fast unto death till construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is announced. He said that he was even willing to sacrifice his life to build pressure on Modi-Yogi governments for the construction of temple.
Swami Paramhans Das said that BJP-led government at Centre should make a law for Ram Temple construction and demanded that PM Narendra Modi visit Ayodhya and announce date of temple construction. The Swami also demanded the right intervention of Yogi Adityanath Govt in Uttar Pradesh to expedite the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
“This time from local corporator to President of India, all are from Bharatiya Janata Party, but they are not doing anything for Ram Mandir. We elected BJP only for the main cause of Ram Janmabhoomi but they are silent over the issue. So, I have decided to sacrifice my life if BJP does not come forward to facilitate construction of Ram Mandir,” he added.
Talking to HENB, Mahant said, “I am not giving any specific time to Modi government to take necessary steps for the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya. They have time till I am alive. I will not break my fast till the RSS-BJP and PM Narendra Modi and CM Yogi Adityanath start construction of Ram Mandir. I have no botheration whether the Rama Janmabhoomi land dispute case is pending in Supreme Court or not. Why the apex court is not dispose the case on early basis?”
As per report, many of Swami’s followers have also started fasting in go around basis to support the cause of early construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya. Many Ayodhya seers viz. Ex BJP MP Dr Ram Vilas Vedanti, Mahant Dharam Das (Nirvayani Akhada), Mahant Avdesh Das (Bhaktmal Mandir), Mahant Ram Bhajan Das Ramayani (Hanuman Killa), Naga Baba Ramlakhan Das (Naga Panchayati Akhada), Pujari Parshad Ramesh Das (Priest associate of Lord Ramlala at Janamsthan), Yuva Sant Upendra Das and many requested Mahant Paramhans Das to break his fasting. But, Swami Paramhans Das has taken a vow to continue his fasting uninterruptedly until the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya comes to a reality. Seeing the stern stand of sacrifice of Swami Paramhans Das many of Ayodhya saints are likely to join the fasting from Thursday, as per latest report.
In the meanwhile, VHP Intl Vice President Champat Rai, and Faizabad MP Lallu Singh also met the fasting saint and told HENB that they will communicate the matter to PM Modi through a delegation of Ayodhya saints led by Dr. Ram Vilas Vedanti.
The health of fasting saint was checked by a team of doctors on Wednesday morning and reported as normal.
A 24X7 Ramnam Sankirtan (singing of devotional song in praise of Lord Ram) has also been started in the fasting venue.
