Masjid should be at a distance from Ram Mandir to avoid dispute: Pejawar seer

Belagavi, Apr 15: The next government, irrespective of its party, will have to construct the Ram temple at the land of Babri Masjid, according to Vishwesha Tirtha Swami of Pejawar Mutt.

Speaking to media persons here the sere said the temple and the mosque can co-exist at Ayodhya, but the mosque should be at a distance from the temple to avoid any dispute.

“I stand by my view that Ram mandir should be built at Ayodhya. However, it has to be done according to rules. The Parliament and Constitution are the ultimate authorities. I will not speak in detail as elections are under way,” he said.

“People will decide who will form the next government,” he said in response to a question.

The seer told presspersons at the Vidyarthi Bhavan in Tilakwadi that the Narendra Modi government had promised to build the temple, but could not do it in this term owing to some reasons. “Some parties and leaders like Mamata Banerjee and Mayawati have opposed it. The Congress has not clarified its stand on the issue. Moreover, the issue is in court. What can the Union government do now?,” he asked.

On the Lingayat issue, he said: “Lingayats are Hindus. All those who worship Lord Shiva are Hindus. The Lingayats and Veerashaivas should not be separate entities. They should not move away from Hinduism. Minister M.B. Patil may oppose this and say that I should not speak about issues concerning them. But is it wrong to speak out when our brothers want to separate from us?” he wondered.

He said he was planning to organise an Iftar dinner for Muslims in the Udupi mutt this year too.

The seer said that the Udupi Krishna Mutt had organised a series of religious and welfare programmes on the 5th Paryaya (alternative worship ritual).

The Ananda Teertha residential school and college will be set up in the birth place of Pajaka near Udupi. Education would be provided free of cost. Students will be taught the Hindu way of life and culture. Students of all communities are welcome, he said.

An education institution will be set up in Hubballi for the benefit of the people of north Karnataka. A hostel is being built in Maratha Halli near Bengaluru, he said.

Dear Sir,

Your comments are most welcome.

Babri Masjid was there in the same place and let it be there.  why dont you build a Mandir at a distance from the Masjid where it is located since years.

So far no evidence has been provided or collected by the court to provide the judgement in favor of Mandir.

Bengaluru, Jan 7: Karnataka Minority Welfare and Textiles Minister Shrimant Balasaheb Patil on Wednesday said that very shortly the 'Love Jihad Act' will be enacted in the state. 

The Love Jihad Act is the name given by the BJP to a law to prevent conversions of Hindu girls who fall in love with Muslim men. This term was promoted by right wing chauvinists in Mangaluru in 2000 and is considered a bogey propagated by right-wing groups, claiming that men from the Muslim community are marrying women from other religious faiths, particularly Hindu women, and forcing them to convert to Islam.

The statement came as the Supreme Court decided to examine the legality of an ordinance passed by the Uttar Pradesh cabinet on the issue. It may be recalled that Uttar Pradesh had enacted an ordinance against forcible or fraudulent religious conversions, which provides for imprisonment of up to 10 years and a fine of up to Rs 50,000 under different categories.

Patil on Wednesday told reporters that there is no confusion within the ruling BJP in the state over bringing the Love Jihad Act. "This is a very huge subject involving many aspects. Therefore, various departments are trying to elicit opinions through consultation with experts. At present, the legal department is deliberating about this with experts," he explained.

He also added that the government is also contemplating to introduce scholastic syllabus in Madrasas. "We want to bring reforms in Madrasas. There is a need for those who come out of these schools to directly take admission in ITI courses," he said.

One of the vocal proponents of the Love Jihad Act is Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Minister KS Eshwarappa, who has been saying that Love Jihad is an international conspiracy, and there is a racket that traps young girls on the pretext of love.

"People should be aware of those exploiting young girls and converting them to their religion. We should systematically remove this racket from our society. Conventions like today will create awareness about this," he had said while demanding the BJP to come out with a stringent law. 

It is important to note that no term called ‘love jihad’ is defined in current Indian laws. During a Parliamentary session in the Lok Sabha in February 2020, Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy had said that no case of ‘love jihad’ has been reported by any of the central agencies. “Article 25 of the Constitution provides the freedom to profess, practice and propagate religion subject to public order, morality and health. Various courts have upheld this view, including the Kerala High Court,” he said in his reply at the session.

Two months ago, Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa had formally announced that the government would take strong measures to put an end to religious conversion in the name of love and marriage. Since Yediyurappa's formal announcement, credence to enact laws has only grown in proportion. BJP state unit president Nalin Kumar Kateel has been regularly tweeting and demanding that a stringent law against 'Love Jihad' is needed in Karnataka.

"Today we have more than. The main difference in the fight that India fought against the virus compared to the rest of the world is that the entire population of the country fought it with unity, he said, and claimed that India has less fatality rate and high recovery rate," he added.

Today with two vaccines produced in the country, we have taken the fight against corona to the final stage," he said, even as he defended the decision to administer the vaccine to frontline warriors and hit out those spreading misinformation on it.

The campus will have a hospital, a Kendriya Vidyalaya, family quarters for troops, administrative building, family welfare centre, sports facilities including a stadium and swimming pool. A total of 1,270 troops of the newly raised 97th RAF battalion, including 106 women personnel, will be based here, officials said.

The battalion will have jurisdiction over a number of districts in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Goa and Puducherry for deployment by Centre to deal with any communal incidents, protests, riots or events that involve huge congregations.

Shah thanked Yediyurappa for taking the initiative and giving the land for a new battalion campus of RAF that is coming up at a cost of Rs 230 crore. He assured the people of Bhadravathi that the central school and the sports stadium that come up will be designed in such a way that local people can also use the facilities.
