Foundation Stone for Ram Mandir will be laid on February 21, ready to take bullets if required: Swami Swaroopanand

The entire nation has united like never before to construct a grand Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. Now a statement has been issued stating that the construction of Ram Mandir will begin on 21st February. This was said by religious leader Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati and added that ready to take bullets if required.

Days ago the Modi government made a big move in the Ayodhya matter by filing a petition in the Supreme Court seeking permission to return all excess acquired land at the Ram Janmabhoomi site. The application of the Modi government stated that “about 67 acres of land was acquired in all, over 25 years ago. Apart from the disputed land, which is about 0.313 acres, the rest can be returned to the owners”.

But Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati isn’t excited about this as he wants to the construct the land in the disputed land itself. He said “They are planning to construct a statue by taking possession of the land around Ram Janmbhoomi and not the 0.3 acres of the disputed land. How did you decide that land should be returned, who are you (govt) to decide. We have to construct grand ram temple in those 66 acres”.

But looking at the determination of Modi government, it feels like it will take all the necessary steps to build a Ram Mandir. Recently Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adithyanath said “I want to say that the court should give its verdict soon, and if it is unable to do so, it should hand over the issue to us. We will resolve the Ram Janmabhoomi dispute within 24 hours. We won’t take 25 hours”.

In what is called as another important development, the RSS-affiliated Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) is planning to grab the eyes of both Modi government and the judiciary through a two-day ‘Dharma Sansad’ at the ongoing Kumbh in Prayagraj, beginning January 31 and the event is expected to be attended by over 5,000 seers and saints of Hinduism.
