VHP plans to observe Babri Demolition Anniversary on December 6 as Shaurya Diwas

VHP and various Hindu organisations will organise a number of religious programmes, including a hawan, so that a grand temple of Lord Ram is built

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad has planned to observe the Babri Demolition Anniversary on December 6 as Shaurya Diwas. Several other Akharas will reportedly join the VHP to mark the 26th anniversary of Babri Masjid demolition.

The day will be celebrated by organising various religious programmes. “Shaurya Diwas will be traditionally celebrated. In Ayodhya, the VHP and various Hindu organisations are likely to organise a number of religious programmes, including a hawan, so that a grand temple of Lord Ram is built,” said Sharad Sharma, VHP Spokesperson in Ayodhya.

He also said that special prayers to Goddess Saraswati, the Goddess of learning, are likely to be held to prevent the politicians from obstructing the construction of the temple. “Sarva baadha mukti hawans (hawans seeking to get rid of all obstructions) too will be held”, he said. Sharma compared the Karsevaks who lost their lives during the Babri demolition with Jatayu who sacrificed his life trying to save Sita from Ravana. He said that tributes will be paid to the innocent karsevaks who faced bullets and lost their lives.

The Hindu organisation is also prepping up for the celebrations lined up after the Shaurya Diwas. According to the VHP Spokesperson, another Dharam Sabha is scheduled to be organised on Dec 9 in Delhi which is likely to be attended by over five lakh people. This will be followed by Gita Jayanti celebrations on Dec 18. According to the VHP Secretary of Awadh region, Bholendra, Gita Jayanti will be celebrated by holding pledge taking ceremonies at various places in the country which will continue for a week. Pledges will be taken for the construction of Ram temple. Apart from this Dharam Sabhas will be organised across the country on a smaller scale.

“On January 31 and February 1, we are going to organise a Dharam Sansad in Prayagraj in which more than 5,000 seers from across the country are likely to participate. Seers from southern states and north-eastern states have been specially invited for this,” Sharma said.

“We will celebrate the day as Shaurya Diwas, as it was on this day that Ram Janmabhoomi was liberated from a Mughal structure”, said Mahant Ramdas of Nirmohi Akhara. He said that the day will be celebrated like Diwali by lighting ghee lamps and lights in about 500 prominent Ashrams in Ayodhya.
