What else can be the poetic justice to the souls of martyr Kothari brothers who lost their lives for the cause of Lord Ram than the son of Mulayam Singh Yadav setting his own house on fire and getting it decimated in elections. Now it is the turn of the BJP to take their sacrifice to a logical conclusion. Mulayam Singh Yadav might have shot them but it was the BJP’s war cry for a Ram Temple that the 2 lads gave up on everything and came for the Kar Seva.
Their blood is equally on the hands of BJP too and a Ram Temple at Ayodhya can only absolve them of the guilt associated with it. It is a moral debt on the BJP as it was the Ram Mandir that made the BJP a party of 283 MPs from a party of 2 MPs in 1984. It was the Ram Mandir that gave BJP its first state governments in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Himachal and made BJP a force to reckon within a few years of its formation. What BJP is today is because of Ram Temple. To think that the youth of today is oblivious of the Ram Temple and doesn’t have any attachment to it is a fallacy.
The BJP thinktank must understand that development can run in parallel with the Ram Mandir. The pace of development won’t be effected in any manner whether a Ram Temple exists at Ayodhya or not. The BJP must respect the huge mandate that it has got this time . It is a cumulation of the excess done by the successors of the Turko-Mongol invaders who percieve themselves as the Master race and Hindus as inferior. The Kairanas, the Aligarhs can be avenged only when the Hindus flex their identity and what better than a Ram Temple at Ayodhya, the spot which started the ascendancy of foreign rule in India. A desecrated Ram Temple is emblematic of emasculated Hindu pride .
The Ram Temple is a sentimental issue for the majority in the country as the name of Ram is the fabric that binds the country in one. There is hardly any place in the country where Ram is not revered. He is Jagannath Puri in the East, He is in Rameshwaram in the South, He is in Badrinath in the North. Ram is the soul of India as way before India got its territorial unity, it was his name that had kept India united in a single entity. He united India culturally as people travelled across the principalities with much ado to offer pilgrimage.
The construction of a Ram Temple at Ayodhya will give an answer to those who treat India as their backyard as it will symbolize the Hindu courage that has thwarted the Ghazwa-e-Hind for the past 1400 years. The deep percolation of Lord Ram in the cultural veins of the country is the reason why India has somehow withstood the Islamic onslaught unlike the Persians,Zoroastrians who fell like a pack of cards. The BJP must understand that there will be peace if Muslims drop their weapons but there will no Hindus if the Hindus drop their weapons. The Ram Temple epitomizes that spirit which needs to be preserved if we want our coming generations to breathe in a free India.
