Don’t touch Ram Setu : RSS warns UPA

via HK published on December 30, 2007

NEW DELHI : In presence of nearly one million strong Ram devotees across the country, RSS clearly warns the UPA government that the Hindus in the country would not sit idle if the government to go ahead with the demolition of Ram Setu. Addressing a huge gathering of Ram Devotees, RSS Sarsanghachalak said the people of the country would not tolerate any damage to the Ram Setu, which they believe has been built for the Lord’s conquest of demon king Ravana.

“It is an irony that while on one hand, the majority of the people of the country do not want the Ram Setu to be destructed and on the other, the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government, the union shipping Minister T.R. Baalu, and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi have vowed to destruct the bridge at all costs,” Sudershanji said.

Senior VHP leaders Ashok Singhal and Pravin Togadia too wanted the government to pay heed to their demands reminding it that “we destroyed Babar’s structure in just four hours”, an obvious reference to the demolition of Babri mosque.

Also significant were messages of support from former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa and Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, whose Shiromani Akali Dal is a part of the NDA.

Around 9 lakhs Ram Devotees from all parts of the country attended the rally organised by the Rameshwaram Ram Setu Raksha Manch at the Swarn Jayanti Park in north Delhi.

Prominent BJP leaders Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj, Murli Manohar Joshi, Jagdish Mukhi, Harsh Vardhan, Vijay Goel, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh, Delhi Mayor Arti Mehra and many other MP’s and state legislators besides leading Shankaracharyas and professional experts were present at the mega rally.

All main roads of Delhi leading to the place of rally were decorated with saffron flags and buntings.

As usual Indian medias tried to blackout the event by giving minimum coverage of one the biggest rally ever conducted by an organization in the country.
