Who is he to say we don’t need a Ram temple? JD(U)’s Pavan Verma hits out on Farooq Abdullah

Farooq Abdullah had said on Ram Mandir that since God is in the hearts of people, what is the need to build a temple.

Janata Dal (United) senior leader Pavan Verma on Sunday slammed National Conference leader and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah for his recent controversial remarks on Ram Mandir, where he had made brazen comments on Lord Ram.

The diplomat-turned-politician Pavan Verma advised Farooq Abdullah not to lecture Hindus after the former J&K CM had questioned whether Lord Ram would come from heaven to address farmer woes in the country. He had recently said that the BJP government is allegedly fooling the people of the country by ”ignoring real issues of farmers, unemployment and Dalits, and is instead fighting for the construction of a Ram temple.”

The senior NC leader had in November asked why a Ram temple should be built in Ayodhya only as Lord Ram is omnipresent and belongs to the entire world. “Today, look at secular democratic India. You’re not fighting on issues that matter to people. You’re fighting for Ram. Is Ram going to come from heaven and give farmers something better? Or unemployment will disappear in a day because Ram is coming. They are fooling people.” had said.

JD(U) leader Pavan Verma slammed Abdullah for his statements against the construction of Ram Mandir at Ayodhya. “I would strongly advise Mr Abdullah not to give homilies to Hindus. He had said that since God is in hearts of people, why build a temple but that applies to all. What’s he trying to say? That because God is in your heart, you can’t build a temple?” said Verma.

Targeting Abdullah for his controversial comments, Verma said that Abdullah’s references to equate to building a Ram temple to the developmental issues of the country is not appropriate and questioned him over his authority to decide on whether Hindus need a Ram temple or not.

Verma further added that people visit temples as a matter of faith and governments will pursue developmental agenda nevertheless. He said that no country has ever advanced a situation where it has lead to faith versus development. He said that proportion must be right and said that they do not want to hear any advice from Farooq Abdullah on this issue.

The Supreme Court on October 29th had adjourned hearings in the Ayodhya dispute until January next year. The Supreme Court has also said that it will decide in January whether the case should be heard in February, March, April or after that.
