Upananda Brahmachari


How much we have to wait for a Ramjanmabhoomi Temple in Ayodhya and a Hindu Rashtra in Bharat?

On December 6th of 1992 in Ayodhya, by demolishing the ”ILLEGAL” and “DISPUTED” Babri Structure, We, the Karsewaks, liberated and reclaimed our rightful Holy Hindu shrine, Sri Ram Janma Bhoomi, Lord Rama’s Holy Birth Place. Since then 6th December  is celebrated as ‘Vijay’/’Shourya’ Diwas – ‘Victory Day’ or ‘Valour Day’ by Hindu’s all over India. But after 26 years that VIJAY is still incomplete and it may termed as an ‘Ardha Vijay Diwas’  as it is a Victory in a half done condition.

Though Hindus won a big litigation in the Mandir-Masjid land dispute and Allahabad High court told that the Babri structure was built after demolishing a prior Hindu temple there; the controversy is still being kept alive by some followers of Babar who destroyed a magnificent Rama Temple by his commander Mir Banki in 1528 to make that disputed structure to humiliate the Hindus in many ways. Through a series of Hindu war over 450 years the followers of Lord Rama clearly knocked down the followers of Babar  in 1992. But, the pseudo secular politicians with Islamic, Christian, Congress and Communist views have been putting many hurdles not to build a magnificent Ram Temple at Ayodhya.  Not only that, many holy places of Hindu Faith are still waiting for the liberation from the plunderers’ Jihadi signs amidst its bloody history of Bharat in Islamic or Christian rules. Presently, the Ayodhya case is pending in the Supreme court of India and likely to heard by its ‘very busy’ judges only in the January 2019.

The crisis in the Hindu leadership and treating the Ram Janmabhoomi Temple Movement as a severally used or less important issue, did a great harm to the resurgence of Hindu Rashtra Movement in India.  Actually, Ram Janmabhoomi Temple Movement was activated to rise a Hindu Wave for building up a meaningful management of a Hindu Rashtra in Bharat with Hindu Empowerment in all dimension. But that ethos are now somehow skipped by the political power monger Hindu Leadership always searching a short-cut way to reach the goal. Now, some propagators of development in ruling politics (say BJP politics) also think Ram Temple is a less important issue than the Development ranting of “Savka Saath Savka Vikash”. But, this school of thoughts is missing one thing of the History of India that is called Bharat.

Once, there was a huge development of Lahore, Karachi, Kabul, Dhaka and so on made by the diligent Hindus. And they welcomed everybody’s participation and development. But, what’s the fate now of those developed cities once situated in undivided India. Those developments have no meaning for Hindus these days as those are disconnected from the Hindutva. Similarly, those in BJP and Sangha Parivar leaders thinking Development without Hindutva, will make a big fault line. They must realize that Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is not making a mere temple there, it is the way for connecting the Hindu mass with Hindutva ideology to ensure all developments may retain in a proper path of prosperity.

I am not contradicting the idea of Political power to be captured by the Hindus for the next 100 years. But that cannot be first priority before strengthening the foundation work of Hindutva in its core ideology against Jihad, Evangelism, Communism and even against ‘anti-Hindu’ Secularism. Horses should pull the chariot. Chariot cannot pull the horses. Likely, Hindutva must pull the chariot of Development. Only Development has no power to make any benefits for the Hindus and Hindutva anyway in this land of Dharma.

So, the Hindu empowerment in all the social and economical faculty, Hindu empowerment in Judiciary and Administration,  Hindu empowerment in Police and Military, Hindu Exploration in Science and Technology  are needed to reach the goal of Hindu Rashtra. Building Ram Temple is the basic and symbolic exploration to reach that goal of Ram Rajya, the ever prosperous, ever benevolent and ever equal system for all. But, politics need a Hindutva enforcement here instead of only development, so that the Indian Politics cannot be a subject of any Jihadi, Evangelical, Communist, Communal powers mainly always busy for getting a chance to stab on Indian Independence, Integrity and Sovereignty.

If we wish to see our Holy places and the signs of pride to be restored once again to that glory as it were, we have to sacrifice more. Without spontaneous support from every sphere of Hindu Life, we can’t be successful to reclaim Ram temple in Ayodhya or for a Hindu Rashtra in Bharat meant for a billion of Hindus in the world. With the spirit of December 6 1992, let us march together for re-establishing of a Hindu Rashtra in Bharat to become a Vishwa Guru and a Real World Power. Building Ram Temple in Ayodhya is synonymous to becoming Global Hindu Power like the Jews in Israel.

But, the difference between many schools in Sangha Parivar, the tag of war between BJP and VHP, the ouster of Dr Pravin Togadia from VHP as he was out-rightly criticizing PM Modi for his irresponsibility and incapability to address the Ayodhya issue, all these in the Ram Temple row practically show the way to destroy the Hindu unity for Ram Temple in a very disgusting way. Consequently, the anti-Hindu and anti-Temple force are creating a very dangerous environment in the politics and judiciary against the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya.

26 years have already gone after hearing the assurance one after another. But now, we cannot wait for an indefinite time to establish a Ramajanmabhoomi Temple at Ayodhya. I think Hindu Groups in many fronts are getting reactive day by day through facing various Political, Islamic and Evangelical hazards. Proactive Hindus have set their alternative ways out of any big banners to run a struggle for Hindu Freedom by make a temple for Ramlala (baby lord Ram) who has been living in a makeshift tent house very miserably for the last 26 years since the disputed Babri structure was destroyed by an agitating Hindu mass in 6th Dec, 1992.

As, BJP is now in power in the Center with absolute majority and they run 19 states in India, the party must not talk rubbish showing their inability to make Ram Temple in Ayodhya. If they feel, the majority people’s sentiment for Ayodhya is being ignored by the ‘so secular’ and ‘so judicious’ Supreme Court of India, the Narendra Modi Govt must venture for a Central Law or otherwise an Ordinance for Ayodhya Ram Temple through parliament. Recent Hindu Dharma Sansad and Sant Sammelan (Seers’ Meet) in Delhi and Ayodhya also pressed for for a Central Law or otherwise an Ordinance for a magnificent Ram Temple in Ayodhya.

Even,  Sri Sri Ravi Shankar of Art of Living is trying hard for a fruitful dialogue between litigant Hindu and Muslim parties to settle the Ayodhya matter out of court; or Dr Subramanian Swamy is fighting for his Right to worship in Ayodhya Ram Temple in Supreme Court; Hindus can’t wait for further betrayal through court or any dialogue.

It’s a matter of fact, BJP gained thousand times for its political prosperity from the issue of Ram Temple. But, it never shared its gain to the prosperity of Ram temple in Ayodhya. Obviously, BJP touched the sky with the blessings of Lord Ram of Ayodhya. Perilously, BJP may shrink again with the curse Lord Ram of Ayodhya. So, BJP must not damage its life line of Ram Mandir anyway.

The forthcoming winter session of parliament is likely to start in the second week of December. By then the results of five states (Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Mizoram and Telengana), will come in favor of BJP. In such a favorable situation BJP must strive hard to make a law or ordinance for Ayodhya Ram Temple without any delay. As BJP came to power on the basis of Hindu sentiment and for its Hindutva promises including Ram Temple in Ayodhya, BJP must not refute or ignore it further. BJP must take this issue in a mission mode and start Ram Temple in Ayodhya in a ‘Now and Never’ motivation.
