VARANASI: Mohammad Hashim Ansari, the litigant in Babri Masjid case, who doesn’t want to pursue the matter any further and wants ‘Ram Lalla’ to be free, gets support of Muslim women of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Varanasi.
Supporting Hashim Ansari’s stand, these women associated with Muslim Mahila Foundation and Bharatiya Awam Party sent a petition to PM requesting the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. They said that the construction of Ram Mandir would end hatred and strengthen the bond of unity and harmony between Hindu and Muslim. They will also go to Ayodhya to meet Ansari.
The president of MMF Nazneen Ansari along with Najma Parveen, president of BAP, and others submitted the petition at the local office of Modi in Ravindrapuri colony on Thursday. The petition was also sent to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and senior RSS functionary Indresh Kumar.
“Yadi Musalman apni tarakki chahate hain aur Hinduon se ijjat chahate hain to Ram janmbhoomi par mandir nirman ke liye pahal kare kyonki duniya janti hai Ayodhya Sri Ram ki hai,” (If Muslims want prosperity and respect from Hindus they should come forward to build the temple at the birthplace of Ram, as all know that Ayodhya belongs to Sri Ram), said Nazneen adding that the construction of temple would be the permanent solution of ending the hatred between the two communities.
“Ram se yudh karne wale Ravan ko logon ne maf nahi kiya toh Ram mandir todne wale Babar aur uske samarthakon ko log kaise maf karenge,” (When people did not forgive Ravana for fighting with Ram, how could they forgive the Ram Mandir destroyer Babar and his supporters), wondered Nazneen. Describing Babar as Mongol invader, she wrote that his ancestor Halaku killed thousands of Muslims and Khalifa in Baghdad in 1258, and Babar sowed the seeds of hatred by destroying Ram Mamdir in 1528. “Everybody know that the Indian Muslims have no connect with Mongols,” she said adding that those who oppose the construction of temple really are not well wisher of Muslims.
The BAP president Najma Parveen said that time has come when Muslims should present an example of communal harmony by contributing their share to the construction of Ram Mandir. “No one can play with the sentiment of crores of Hindus attached with Ram,” she said.
It may be mentioned here that the Muslim women associated with MMF and BAP openly campaigned for Modi during the parliamentary election. Besides, these women had also sent Rakhi to Modi on the occasion of Rakshabandhan and prayed for his well being during the holy month of Ramzan.
