Arvind Kejriwal seeks Lord Ram’s blessings at Ayodhya, had earlier invoked his Nani to support Babri Masjid

Arvind Kejriwal said that he had sought the blessings of Shri Ram and of Lord Hanuman at Hanumangarhi. He said that he prayed for the well-being and prosperity of all countrymen.

Arvind Kejriwal on Monday announced that he had been to Ayodhya to attend the Aarti on the banks of the Saryu River. The Delhi Chief Minister appears to have been overwhelmed by a newfound sense of piety ahead of the elections in Uttar Pradesh.

Arvind Kejriwal said that he had sought the blessings of Shri Ram and of Lord Hanuman at Hanumangarhi. He said that he prayed for the well-being and prosperity of all countrymen. He ended his tweet saying, “Jai Shri Ram”.

The Delhi Chief Minister appears to have sharply altered his tone on Ayodhya and Shri Ram. In 2014, Kejriwal had said Shri Ram could not live in a Temple that was built after the demolition of a Masjid. He had said at a rally, “When the Babri Masjid was demolished, I asked my grandmother that she must be happy. A temple for her Bhagwan Ram will be constructed in Ayodhya. To which she replied, my Ram will not live in a temple that is constructed by demolishing a mosque.”

As for his devotion towards Pawan Putra Hanuman, Arvind Kejriwal had posted a derogatory image of Shri Ram’s greatest devotee in his attempt to mock the BJP. The Delhi Chief Minister in recent times has chosen to withdraw his coarse anti-Hindu rhetoric and focus instead on emphasising his Hindu credentials. Ahead of the assembly elections in Delhi, he was targeted over the same by Islamists.
