Shashi Tharoor stirs up controversy, says no ‘good Hindu’ would want a Ram Mandir at ‘Babri site’

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor has once again stoked a controversy after he claimed that ‘no good Hindu would want to see a Ram temple at Babri site’.

According to the reports, Shashi Tharoor was invited to speak at the Hindu Lit For Life Dialogue 2018 on the topic ‘India: Issues and Opportunities’. 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”.

The Congress leader went on to claim that in future there may be chances of a riot-like situation in the country and Indians should have to brace for communal tensions in the future. He went on to instil fear against the ruling dispensation by saying, “I think we have to brace ourselves for some more unpleasantness in the months to come because there has been a correlation, in the not so distant past, between the advent of elections and the stoking of religious passions, communal rioting. That’s indeed my worry.”

The Congress’s effort to seek appropriation in the Ayodhya movement and its decision to engage in ‘soft-Hindutva’ comes after the recent Supreme Court’s judgement which rejected the plea to refer the Ayodhya land dispute case to a larger constitutional bench. The apex court had said it will begin hearing the Ayodhya matter from October 29 to decide the suit on merit.

The Congress previously has decided to maintain its ambiguity over Ram Mandir dispute and reportedly, the party does not want to take any stance on Ram Mandir issue and refrains from commenting on the matter. Senior Congress leader, Kabil Sibal has been representing Sunny Wakf Board in the Ram Mandir case, has repeatedly asked for adjournment till 2019 general elections, to preserve the decorum of law and order, while Congress President Rahul Gandhi has been busy playing Janeu dhari Hindu and  Shiv Bhakt.
