LUCKNOW: Terming “extremely dangerous” an RSS functionary’s remark that the Sangh, if needed, will launch an agitation for a Ram temple in Ayodhya, the AIMPLB Sunday said the recent activities related to the issue were “politically driven”.
On Friday, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) general secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshi had said the Sangh will not hesitate to launch an agitation for a Ram temple at Ayodhya, if needed.
The remark came amid a growing clamour for a law to clear the way for its construction at the disputed site in Uttar Pradesh.
“The flurry of activities vis-a-vis the demand for construction of a Ram temple by the so-called Hindu outfits and their impatience clearly indicates that it is politically-driven. This is being done to build pressure for the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections. But, what those outfits do is still not clear,” general secretary, India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), Maulana Wali Rahmani told PTI.
He said if the RSS launches a movement in this regard, “it will be extremely dangerous” and will lead to an “atmosphere of chaos in the country”.
“The quantum of hatred between the Hindus and the Muslims was not so much in 1992. In the recent years, the rift has widened. At this point of time, the hatred between the two communities has increased significantly,” Rahamai claimed.
