Khandwa: RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) firebrand leader Sadhvi Ritambhara on Friday once again pushed for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya saying “Time is now ripe to construct temple of lord Ram in Ayodhya.” Sadhvi Ritambhara who was in Khandwa on Friday made the statement while participating in a Bhagwat Katha programme.
Sadhvi Ritambhara, who achieved prominence for her active participation in the Babri Masjid demolition movement in 1992, for which she was later indicted by the Liberhan Commission, also praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP national president Amit Shah for handing over the rein of Uttar Pradesh to Yogi Adityanath.
Hailing the move she said involvement of spiritual persons in active politics is a positive sign for politics in the country. “Yogi Adityanath will prove himself as one of the best administrators in the state,” she said.
When asked about allegation leveled by many activists and intellectuals that BJP government has been curbing their freedom of speech, she said “Our Constitution give us freedom of speech and expression, but one should be well aware about his or her limit and they should not use this freedom against their own country.”
On Yogi government’s move to introduce anti-Romeo squad to curb eve-teasing incidents in UP, Sadhvi said “It’s the family and parents’ responsibility to groom their kids as an ideal citizen, but unfortunately the state government and police have to do this”.
Notably, Supreme Court on March 21 suggested an out-of-court settlement of the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi dispute, saying an amicable settlement of the festering issue was a better course than on insisting on judicial pronouncement.
