I am ready to sacrifice my life for Ram Sethu: Bitta

via PTI published on October 7, 2007

NEW DELHI: Former Youth Congress chief M S Bitta has sought to take potshots at his own party as also DMK chief M Karunanidhi over Ram Sethu, declaring that he was ready to sacrifice his life to save it.

Bitta, who currently heads the All India Anti-Terrorist Front and is known to be closer to causes espoused by the BJP, said he is a great devotee of Lord Hanuman.

In an interview to the RSS mouthpiece Organiser , Bitta, who is a Sikh, said, “I am a great devotee of Lord Hanuman. I have great faith in him. Without Lord Ram, there is no Lord Hanuman.”
Bitta said Lord Ram’s name finds innumerable mention in the Sikh religious scriptures.

Noting that Mahatma Gandhi had died with Lord Ram’s name on his lips, he said it hurt him when it was said there was no evidence to prove his existence.

“My life is a bonus. I have been a target of terrorists for opposing the killing and forcible eviction of Hindus from Punjab. At Agniteertham on the Rameshwaram shores, I took a vow that following the path of Guru Gobind Singh, I will be the first to sacrifice my life if any attempt was made to demolish the bridge built by Lord Ram and his army,” Bitta said.

He demanded that a White Paper be brought out to find the people responsible for the controversy and said Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, “an atheist”, was responsible to a great extent.
