It is a matter of our faith, which is above the law and above the Constitution,” Singh told reporters in Ballia, eastern Uttar Pradesh.“The Constitution comes after Lord Ram. We had shown this in 1992. We will again show this on November 25 because the people of Bairia are eager to be part of this Hindu revolution,” said the BJP MLA
Sitting BJP MLA in Uttar Pradesh has sparked a controversy after he said that we would start constructing a Ram temple in Ayodhya on November 25, Sunday, and break every law if needed because faith was above the Constitution.
Surendra Singh’s, an MLA from Bairia, statements comes a day after BJP’s national chief Amit Shah had said in Rajasthan “no question of going back even an inch” on the commitment to build the ram temple on the disputed site.
On Wednesday, Shah had said in Rajasthan that BJP wanted a judicial resolution of the dispute but made it clear there should be no confusion that a Ram temple should be built at the place where Ramlala resides.
Singh continuously on Thursday stressed that the temple must come up at the disputed site. “I and my 5,000 supporters would be in Ayodhya during the Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s Dharm Sabha on Sunday and we will break every law, even disregard the Constitution to start constructing the Ram temple.
He added “We will not care for law and order if anybody tries to create hurdles in the way of the temple’s construction in Ayodhya,” Singh said.A makeshift temple to Ramlala (infant Ram) now stands on the disputed plot.The babri masjid – which is now pending in the Supreme Court, which would take up the matter in January to fix a date for the hearing.
Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath, who was in Hapur, west Uttar Pradesh, to address a government event, ignored a question from reporters about Singh’s comments.
Uttar Pradesh CM yogi later told in a public meeting “Ours is a country of faith. Previous governments used to hit out at our faith. But you must have noticed that we have been restoring it,” Adityanath said, pointing out that his government has been organising Hindu festivals and helping people with religious works.
