Upendra Bharti | HENB | Ayodhya | Sept 15, 2019:: Senior Hindutva proponent and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Dr. Subramanian Swamy has claimed that the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya will commence by November. He also expressed confidence that the decision of the Supreme Court, in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri mosque title suit which is currently being heard, will be in favour of the Ram temple.
Harvard Economist and Legal expert, Dr. Swamy, further said that the right to worship is a fundamental right, adding that the same cannot be taken away by anyone. “The temple which is at the spot of lord Ram’s birth cannot be removed,” he said.
The remarks were made by the Rajya Sabha MP during his visit to Ayodhya. Swamy arrived in the holy town on Saturday, a day before his birthday, which was observed on Sunday by a celebration committee of Virat Hindustan Sangam (VHS)+ headed by many seers and saints of Ayodhya and Ramjanmabhoomi Nyas Samiti. Dr Swamy was also felicitated by the seer and saints of Ayodhya for his continued service for Hindutva and his legal struggle for Ram Sethu and Ram Janmabhoomi.
The remark by the BJP leaders comes just days after NDA constituent Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray called for action by Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led central government to enable speedy construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.
The Shiv Sena supremo said that with abrogation of Article 370, which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir, the Modi government had shown that it was decisive in nature. He added that after the Article 370 move, it was now time for construction of Ram temple and introduction of uniform civil code.
“We had said before the elections that the Kashmir issue would be resolved. The opposition was saying we would not let it (Article 370) go. I am proud of you Modi ji,” Thackeray had said even as he advocated the cause of Ram temple.
Both Swamy as well as Thackeray have often raised demands, seeking action by government for construction of Ram temple.
Even in June, Thackeray had said during a visit to Ayodhya that the Modi government must consider bringing an ordinance for the construction of Ram temple.
The title suit over the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid site is being heard by the Supreme Court.
In the maiden speech in his 80th birth day celebration, Dr Swamy said, “Today, on my birthday, I have come here due to the people’s demands. I believe that will win the case. Nobody can take away our fundamental right. By November when the verdict comes, we will celebrate.”

Dr Swamy added further, “Earlier I had filed a plea on the Ram Lalla matter in the High Court. After we won the case in the high court, I was advised by the Supreme Court to get involved in the main matter itself. Then I pursued the case in a different angle based on ‘fundamental right’. Hindus’ fundamental rights of worship in Ramjanmabhoomi is greater than Muslims’ rights of possessing a land. Muslims can offer Namaj in any place changeable according to need and situation. But, Hindus cannot change their worship in Ramjanmaboomi, where Lord Rama was born as per belief of Hindus.”
