Ram Setu : VHP to meet soon to work out a strike plan

via HK published on September 17, 2007

GURUVAYUR: VHP leaders will meet in New Delhi in a day or two to chalk out details of a nationwide agitation to be launched for the protection of Ram Setu, VHP general secretary Praveen Togadia said here today.

“The VHP, with the co-operation of other Hindu outfits, will launch a countrywide agitation against the destruction of the Ram Setu which has already got underway,” Togadia told reporters here.

He said the move to develop a shipping channel by destroying the Ram Setu not only amounted to hurting Hindu sentiments, but was also part of an US conspiracy to gain access to deposits of rare minerals and metals, including thorium.

He said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh owed an apology to the Hindus in the context of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) submitting an affidavit in the Apex Court, stating that there was no historical evidence that Lord Ram had ever lived.

On the vexed issue of throwing the portals of Guruvayur temple open to non-Hindus also, he said VHP was not against true believers worshiping in the temple. At the same time, any move to forcibly gain the right to enter the temple would be stiffly resisted.

Togadia worshiped in the Sree Krishna temple here and the nearby Mammiyur Shiva temple.
