Congress will be better off if Tharoor sticks to typing complicated words instead of commenting on Ram Mandir

Senior Congress leader, Shashi Tharoor, has stirred up a controversy with his latest remarks on Hindus and Ram Janambhoomi. Tharoor, while addressing the gathering, said, “While a vast majority of Hindus believes that Ayodhya was the birthplace of Lord Ram, no good Hindu would want to see a Ram temple built by demolishing somebody else’s place of worship”.

With a single remark, Tharoor has branded hundreds and thousands of devout pious Hindus as ‘bad’ merely because they disagree with Mr. Tharoor and want a Bhavya Ram Mandir to be built at the birthplace of Shri Rama. It is regrettable that politicians are insulting Hindus for merely wanting a grand Temple to be built at Ayodhya. It appears that Tharoor is unaware of the sentiment that is simmering within Hindus. The political party whose journey to power began with the Ram Janambhoomi movement currently enjoys an overwhelming share of political power in the country. If every Hindu is ‘bad’ merely because Mr. Tharoor believes so, then he is insulting the intelligence of the vast majority of the electorate which elected the BJP to power.

Thus far, the Congress party had maintained a certain ambiguity on their stance on the Ram Mandir by refusing to comment on the matter. However, considering the fact that another senior leader of the Congress party, Kapil Sibal, has attempted to delay the matter in courts on several occasions, it appears clear that unless the party comes out and states otherwise, Tharoor’s stance on the issue reflects the official opinion of the party on the matter, especially considering the conduct of one of their leaders in the court. A politician should not involve himself with the business of issuing certificates on moral conduct to the electorate. And it reflects on Tharoor as a politician that he would demonize vast swathes of the country for merely seeking something as basic as a Temple at Shri Rama’s Janmabhoomi.

The loyalty to the Babri Masjid that is displayed by certain sections of society and politicians even today is a cause for worry to the integrity of our nation. It has been established conclusively, and beyond any point of reasonable doubt, that the Babri Masjid was indeed built after demolishing a Temple in its stead. The ideology that led to the demolition of the Temple and the construction of the Babri is the same vicious ideology that led to the formation of Pakistan. It is understandable if Pakistanis and Bangladeshis are disturbed by the demolition of the Babri but why should any Indian politician or citizen be disturbed by the demolition of a building that was an enduring testimony to the hardships and misery that the Hindu people were forced through by the Muslim invaders?

Tharoor’s remarks also reveal what anglophile deracinated liberals think of Hindus. As long as Hindus don’t raise their voice against the million injustices that is afflicted on them on a daily basis, they are worthy of praise. As long as Hindus continue to carry the burden of secularism on their shoulders while being demonized as fascists, they are honourable.

As long as Hindus don’t complain against the blatant minority appeasement by the so-called secular parties and ignore the destruction of the Hindu civilization, they are exemplary citizens. But the moment Hindus start uniting under the banner of Shri Rama, the moment they start uniting under the banner of Lord Ayyappa, the moment Hindus reject the bad deal that has been enforced on them by decades of appeasement and misrule, the moment Hindus refuse to sacrifice their culture and traditions to the ceaseless march of evangelistic liberalism, they are branded evil, monstrous and vile. Anglophiles like Tharoor want Hindus to be sheep and willingly walk to the slaughterhouse without so much as a whimper.

The Congress party will be better served if Tharoor sticks to typing complicated words on social media that nobody cares about, especially at a time when the party is struggling hard to shed its anti-Hindu image. Ahead of the assembly elections in key states, the Congress party is going full throttle in its devotion towards Hindu Gods and ethos. Under such circumstances, it does not bode well for the party that a senior leader of the Congress party has come out and said that only a ‘bad’ Hindu wants a Ram Temple at Ayodhya. It even exposes the fact that the Congress’ soft Hindutva approach is merely for electoral benefits and not a sudden change of heart as some of them would have us believe.
