Consensus as 'Indian Vedic' sense consider all towards a common unity,
without any split, birth place of 'Lord Rama' to be honoured, and Ayodhya is a
'Site' to establish Truth and Ancient Indian Vedic knowledge and information for
the rest of the world. The site, must be a sacred place for Hindus so we have to
bless its restoration, the building architecture of a grander mosque in a
appropriate manner, and create one of the top-up 'site'. This is to communicate
ancient wisdom and practices for the coming generation, otherwise coming
generation will be unknown about the many secret information in ancient
scriptures in India. Notably, The "Ayodhya Ram Janmabhoomi Verdict" is currently
in the Supreme Court and it would decide in January (2019) when to begin hearing
Delivering the organisation’s customary message on the occasion of Vijay Dashami,
RSS chief, Mohan Bhagwat, has left no stone unturned about what the Narendra
Modi government should immediately do - which is to start building the Ram
temple in Ayodhya even by enacting an ordinance. After the recent SC decision,
RSS spokesperson Arun Kumar also reiterated the demand, and asking the
government to clear hurdles in the way of a "grand Ram mandir". Also, The
firebrand leader of the pro-Hindutva Antarrashtriya Hindu Parishad charged the
BJP with betraying the people on the Ram temple matter. The people who swore in
the name of Ram temple have managed to make a Rs 500-crore office for themselves
in New Delhi, while Lord Ram continues to live under the open sky.
Meeting between BJP President Amit Shah and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Ram
temple issue is currently underway where the BJP and the RSS are expected to
contemplate on various options in front of the government now that the SC has
delayed the matter till January.
Meanwhile, BJP MP and RSS ideologue, Mr Rakesh Sinha has articluted the grip of
ruling party over the recent SC decision, the larger privar or he would soon
introduce a "private member's bill" in Parliament seeking the construction of a
Ram temple on a disputed site in Ayodhya. To those who keep asking the BJP and
the RSS about when Ram temple will be constructed, I have a straight question:
Will you support my private member bill on Ram temple?" He also questioned why
the SC was delaying hearing the case and said that the issue of a Ram temple in
Ayodhya is a "top priority for Hindu society", he tweeted. While ruling party
has 73 members in the 243 - member Rajya Sabha but will get the favour of allies
like 'Shiv Sena' on the issue. However, it is not likely to get enough support
to get the nod from the House.
A private member's bill in a parliamentary form of government is a proposed
law/bill introduced into a legislature by a legislator who is not acting on
behalf of the executive branch.
BJP spokesperson Dr Sambit Patra has said, the BJP stood by its resolve to
construct a Ram temple in Ayodhya "through constitutional measures" and any bill
which is to come in future is the property of Parliament.. Commenting on that
will not be fair. As for the BJP's resolve to construct the Ram temple, we have
pledged since 1989 that we will, through constitutional measures, strive for the
construction of the temple. Moreover, BJP leaders like Sanjeev Baliyan and Vinay
Katiyar, and the RSS, the ideological parent of the BJP, pushed for an ordinance
to fast-forward the Ram temple construction in Ayodhya. While Union minister
Giriraj Singh sounded an ominous warning, saying that he feared the consequences
if there was a further delay in building the temple.
Impotently, Ever since the party-parivar sensed that the mantras of neither "achhe
din" nor "sabka saath, sabka vikas", evoking a favourable response, the focus of
the saffron propaganda has been on Hindu-Muslim polarisation. It is extending
the scope of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) from Assam to other states
or the removal of long-established Muslim names in UP like Mughalsarai and
Allahabad, the party's agenda has been to send the message that Muslims will be
under pressure to prove the genuiness of their citizenship and that India’s
multi-cultural past will be erased as Hindu rashtra takes root. In other words,
The governemnt may enact a law and construct the grander mosque, Ram temple in
Ayodhya, the way Sardar Patel had done for the construction of 'Somnath temple'.
UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath also articulated the majority community in the
country expects an early Supreme Court verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi title suit
saying "justice delayed is justice denied". In short, The CM, Yogi expected the
matter to be out before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and wanted the issue to be
settled as soon as possible as the "responsibility of maintaining law and order
in the state". The ruling party, however, is unlikely to bring an ordinance or a
legislation, which is why these MPs will be doing the needful, apparently to
satisfy the core group through the Private Member’s Bill. Yogi has published a
series of videos in which he mentioned, "It would have been good if the SC had
settled the dispute.. Justice delivered in time is considered best justice and
delay in delivering justice amounts to injustice". All options to settle the
dispute peacefully and considering the larger issues of faith and sentiments of
crores of people were being explored by the government."
Indeed, There was never any doubt about the BJP electoral gambits but the
attempts has now been unambigiously and forcefully articulated through the
party’s friend, philosopher, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). And the RSS
chief has taken the party and the Hindutva brotherhood to the days of the
Ramjanmabhoomi movement in the 1990s when the saffron storm-troopers used to say
that the courts can have no say in a matter of faith. Sangh Parivar Activists
powerfully draws on Religious Ideas, Image, and Rituals that are already part of
the everyday religious worlds of many Hindus in their efforts to appeal to
followers and potential recruits, and disseminate their construction of nation
and subject of hindutva.
All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Asaddudin Owaisi dared
the government to bring an ordinance, saying the BJP refers to the Ram Temple
again and again. "If they have the courage, they should bring an Ordinance on
Ram Temple construction. They are trying to scare us about bringing an
Ordinance, why don't they bring it".
Several reports revealed that, This turn comes amid the efforts to keep alive
the pet saffron poll plank in the National Election 2019. It is also being seen
more as an attempt to keep happy the core vote bank, which is threatening to
express dissatisfaction with the ruling party by way of votes in the coming
elections. Many observers were articulated that the BJP is in power, so why it
should not take credit on the same, as is being demanded by the supporting Hindu
groups, itself. While Congress leader P. Chidambaram, however, argued if the
government brought an Ordinance on Ram Mandir, it would be "unconstitutional"
and an "adventurous action".
The former Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader has said the time has come for him to
field candidates in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls to defeat the "anti-Hindu forces".
We will contest the 2019 general elections and our entire focus would be to
reclaim Ayodhya, Kashi and Mathura” and change their landscape for ever. The
verdict was informally deliberated among the senior leaders in the government
and in the BJP’s organisational structure and the consultation also focussed on
how to prevent the Opposition from exploiting the Ram Mandir issue just ahead of
the string of Assembly polls in key states and the General Election 2019.
Meanwhile, National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah has argued that, the
Ruling Party thinks 'Lord Ram' will help it win next year's general elections,
but God "will not help them win the elections. "It is the people who will vote,
neither 'Lord Ram' nor 'Allah' will vote". RSS observer namely, Dilip Deodhar
articulated "Bhagwat, PM Narendra Modi - BJP and VHP are all on the same page on
Ram mandir and there have been clues to this effect right from 2014. My sense is
that RSS and the larger Parivar will explore all constitutional, legal and
political options to make a big move for Ram mandir before the next general
elections, irrespective of what the SC does".

The basic function of parliament is to make new laws, amend existing laws and
repeal old laws. For every such procedure, a bill needs to be passed in both
houses of parliament. Once passed in both the houses, bill needs to get assent
of the president to become an act. The relevant articles of the constitution are
107 (Provisions as to introduction and passing of Bills), 108 (Joint sitting of
both Houses in certain cases), 109 (Special procedure in respect of Money
Bills), 110 (money bills) and 111 (assent to bills)..
Following the professor and RSS ideologue, People use the term ‘honorable court’
not because they really mean it but they fear that anything contrary to the
voice of the court will invite punishment. Democracy cannot be measured from the
lens of binary between courts and autocrat leaders. The way individuals have the
tendency to appropriate and aggrandise power, institutions also may have such
propensity. The greatest challenge to democracy is the restoration of people
faith in the institutions, which have been made responsible to protect our
rights and impart justice to all. The court needs to be seen doing justice, not
taking decisions: Sangit Ragi, Professor, Delhi University.
Number of representations repeatedly cited in Prayers, Image, Speech and Act
attempts to position Hindus as the privileged inheritors of the Nation by
implying that Hindus alone can articulate both a genealogical and scared claim
to place. Thus, regardless of the intention of the participants, each recitation
of the prayer mix a cartographic claim and sets in motion a particular
construction of the countries community apparently united by its relationship to
the goddess.. While Excavations have shown that there was a temple so here your
effort will be supported with the honorable SC decision with the same regard,
otherwise you will have pre-set mind to stand against truth for degradable
material success in the world. Let us see the prospect of lord 'Ram Tample' in
