New Delhi: Firebrand Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Friday warned the Centre and Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government saying he would ‘topple them’, if they try to oppose the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya. The BJP leader also claimed that the Muslims known to him had no objection in the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya
“If our matter (Ram temple) is listed in January, we’ll win it in two weeks. Because my two opposing parties are the central government and Uttar Pradesh government. Do they have the guts to oppose me? If they do, I’ll topple the government. Though I know that they won’t do it,” he said while addressing a gathering at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).
Explaining the timeline of the case, Swamy said,”Sunni Waqf Board filed a case claiming that the land that was captured by Mughal ruler Babar is ours. They never said that they want to re-construct Babri. They just said it’s our title. Hindu parties like Ram Janmbhoomi Vyas and Nirmohi Akhada said that there were two temples of which they were trustees, and should be given to them. The Allahabad High Court heard their suit and said it’s Ram Janmbhoomi, two gumbads will go to Hindus, one to Muslims.”
Earlier in October, the Supreme Court adjourned the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit till January 2019 to fix the date of hearing in the matter.
