Dear Readers

Merry Christmas!

India has already entered into the nearing phase of 2019 election season. The BJP came to power through a historic win in 2014 after giving a hope to Indian electorate that Ram temple will be built to honor the long standing demand of majority of Hindu people.After BJP came into the power in 2014, BJP also won in UP, which increased the hope of hindus that temple will be built, more so with a Hindu oriented CM candidate Yogi Aadityanath, a former Mahant of Gorakhnath temple, Gorakhpur, UP. Ram temple construction is expected to create huge political mileage for any party succeeding in getting the Ram temple built. As BJP is expected to gain this political mileage based on its track record of supporting the Ram temple construction movement including the famous RathYatra led by L.K. Advani. Being afraid of the potential success of BJP, Congress has been trying to block this process of temple building by appealing to the Supreme Court of India to delay the verdict to post 2019 LokSabha election apart from regularly attacking BJP for not doing enough for construction of Ram temple. Other opposition parties have been supporting Congress in their opposition to the BJP.

All the opposition parties reflect no respect for the interest for the nation or the interest for majority community that is hindu in their conduct while the country is called Hindustan.

Similar opposition is also against of renaming the towns by their ancient names which were changed by the Islamic invaders (Mughals) for e.g. Faizabad renamed as Ayodhaya, Allahabad renamed as Prayagraj. Through these initiatives BJP is fulfilling long standing expectation and dreams of majority community which are not expressed violently. Beyond all these political controversies few basic facts need be appreciated, first every invader gives its priority for destruction of the cultures and religious beliefs, monuments of the invaded country/society. The destruction of Ram temple by Babar and construction of Babri Masjid under his directions is a proof of the intention of the invading rulers to destroy the local culture and belief systems and impose the Islamic culture by constructing a mosque. The act of converting the name of Prayagraj to Allahabad by the Mughals is also similar to that of construction of masjid in place of Ram temple.

Secondly, if a hooligan or gunda, from another community like ISLAM or Christianity, occupies your house, forcing you to live in a corner and leaves the house after years, obviously, ransacking your place of worship and leaving imprints of their long stay through their names and markings. What will be the first thing you do when you get the house back? Obviously, one will clean the house, specifically the markings and imprints left by the occupant and reinstate your place of worship. Based on this logic the first government after independence should have cleaned the house of India by undoing all the wrong done by the invading cultures like Muslims (Mughal) and Christians (English). These were not done till 70 years after independence forcing the country men to live under the stress of the symbols of invading nations and cultures for e.g. Mosque in place of Ram temple, mosque inside a premise of Mathura temple, mosque in place of Vishvanath Temple. These initiatives, including construction of Ram temple, renaming of the towns from the name given by the invading power to its original names are desired steps to be taken by any responsible government irrespective of political identity as a pure governance role. Similarly opposition political entities need be responsible enough to look beyond their political and vote bank interest and respect the decision and actions that is desired for a nation as a whole and not oppose the government for just the sake of opposition which is ultimately expected to damage the electoral prospects.
