Shia Waqf Board President Wasim Rizvi, who is known to be a strong advocate of building Ram Mandir at Ayodhya, has once again stirred controversy by calling the Gandhi family as Muslims. According to reports, Rizvi, who had come to Ayodhya for the darshan of Lord Ram made the remarks while addressing the media.
Rizvi who had come for the darshan for the third time said that next time he will only come for the darshan of Lord Ram when Lord Ram will be inside a grand Ram Temple and not in a tent.
When asked about which party he thinks would be able to form the government after the Lok Sabha elections, Rizvi attacked the Gandhi family saying that only the Muslim family of Indira Gandhi denies the existence of Ram. He said that in India either orthodox Muslims and the Muslim family of Indira Gandhi deny the existence of Lord Ram.
Hitting out at Priyanka Gandhi Vadra who was appointed as the Congress General Secretary of UP East right before the Lok Sabha elections, Rizvi said that Priyanka Gandhi is beautiful and she did not need to come into politics.
Giving a controversial remark against Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Rizvi said that he would have given her a role in his movie ‘Ram Janmabhoomi’ as Zafar Khan’s daughter-in-law if she had approached him.
Speaking on the petition filed by Nirmohi Akhara in which it demanded that the place of mediation of the Ram Janmbhoomi case should be changed from Ayodhya to some other safer place and that two more judges should be added to the panel, Rizvi said that Ayodhya is safe for the mediation proceedings to be held there.
Rizvi was expelled from Islam for claiming that homosexuality is prevalent in Madrassas.
