The Hindu society fought continuously for 492 years to undo the debasing of the signature superimposed by the foreign invader Babar on the birthplace temple of Sri Ram at Ayodhya, the VHP said.
New Delhi: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has said that the Bhoomi Pujan (adoration of earth Goddess/groundbreaking ceremony) for Ram Temple in Ayodhya is a glorious moment for the country.
No one can tarnish this fulcrum of national glory. The Hindu society fought continuously for 492 years to undo the debasing of the signature superimposed by the foreign invader Babar on the birthplace temple of Sri Ram at Ayodhya, the VHP said.
“In the latest mass struggle that started in 1984 CE, 160 million Ram bhakts (devotees) and more than 3 lakh villages of Bharat participated. This struggle continued till the historic verdict of the Supreme Court delivered on November 09, 2019. It was the result of this, one of its kind, cultural freedom struggle that Babar’s outlandish superimposed structure, that disgraced our pride and nationhood, is no longer there, and the resolve to build a stately temple to our great Patriarch Bhagwan Shri Ram is going to soon materialise steadily by degrees,” said Dr. Surendra Jain, Central Joint General Secretary of VHP during a press conference in Delhi.
He said that the history of Ram Janmabhoomi movement is a rousing journey of pride of the country going “From Self-Guilty/Troubled Conscience to Self-Confidence and Clear Conscience”.
“We won after nearly 1,000 years of continuous struggle against foreign invaders, but, the divisive, disruptive and discordant politics of pseudo-secularism tried to frustrate the country's self-esteem, cultural underpinning and bedrock,” he said.
“Hindu society was not only being divided on fictitious grounds, but also an insidious effort was on to plant a complex of inferiority in Hindu minds and hearts. This organic movement has expunged all manufactured and contrived fault-lines of division. Hindus have identified with one another, united and organised by rising above avowals of caste, creed, language, region, etc,” Dr. Jain further said.
He added, filled with pride, millions of Hindus today declare, “Garv se kaho hum Hindu hain” (Proudly say, we are Hindus). As a result of this self-respect, confidence and national pride, divisive politics of Bharat is disappearing from all walks of life. The entire country is now full of confidence and bringing welcome changes in every field of life for all round welfare. Also, Bharat is making its debut as a superpower on the global stage.”
Dr. Jain further said that pride of nationality is an important motivating element for any country, but due to the politics of divisive appeasement, the definition of nationality of Bharat was confused, a national crisis of identity was being created. Now, Bharat’s nationality cannot be linked to any foreign invader. It is the inspiring narratives of the patriarchs and matriarchs of the nation that will define this. Who can be a better patriarch than Bhagwan Ram? It has been accepted by the constitution of the country itself.
The VHP's Joint General Secretary also said that the pace of this welcome change is increasing rapidly. By the time the Kalash (pinnacle pitcher) of Bhagwan Ram's temple is established, all the divisive elements would have become irrelevant and faded into oblivion and nothingness and the resolve of a new Bharat, with self-esteem, poise and self-reliance, would come true.
