Shameful posturing by Cong on Ram Temple issue: Shah

As the Sunni Wakf Board separated itself from stance of its advocate Kapil Sibal on linking the 2019 national election with the Ram Mandir issue, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was all praise for the Sunni Wakf Board.

Regarding the timing of building a Ram temple in Ayodhya, Sibal said, " We believe in the Lord, we don't believe in you Modi ji.

BJP president Amit Shah accused the Congress of adopting double standards saying Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi is visiting temples but its senior leader Kapil Sibal is being used by the party to delay the Ayodhya case.

There are reports that the board has said it did not agree with Sibal's views.

This is published unedited from the PTI feed. "We have got nothing to do with his statement", Mehboob said.

Sibal, a former Union minister in the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance that governed India between 2004 and 2014, was appearing for one of the litigants in the case, but the Congress was quick to clarify on Wednesday that his plea was not consistent with its stand.

Sibal had, yesterday, demanded for the next hearing in the case to be held only in July 2019 after the completion of the next Lok Sabha polls, citing political ramifications. "Every Hindu and Muslim of the country wants a solution to the issue soon", Haji was quoted as saying by ANI. When Lord Ram wants it the temple will be built wherever, whenever.

Shah further hit out at the Congress Party for deferring the case when everyone wanted an early resolution of the issue.

"The Supreme Court fixed the next hearing for the long-standing Ayodhya dispute matter for February 8, 2018".

Surjewala also asserted party's stand that it will always stand by Supreme Court's verdict in the matter. BJP chief Amit Shah is trying to garner votes in the name of Lord Rama. "They are least bothered about the nation", Modi said. Modi said while addressing a rally in Gujarat's Dhandhuka.

The stakeholders in the case had moved the apex court after the Allahabad HC directed the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and the Lord Ram Lalla to settle for a three-way division of the disputed site.

The dispute was triggered after the 16th Century mosque - Babri Masjid - was demolished by thousands of activists associated with right wing groups on December 6, 1992.
