AYODHYA- Fresh two truck of stones meant for construction of Ram Temple were unloaded at Ram Sewak Puram, a VHP property on Sunday in Ayodhya, prompting the stakeholders of the Ayodhya dispute to speak out against what they called was a political stunt. A ceremony was performed by Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas chief Mahanta Nritya Gopal Das shortly afterwards.

Hashim Ansari, the oldest litigant in the case, said the ‘shila pujan’ performed on the new stones may harm the atmosphere and asserted that he wanted peace to prevail in the country. Ansari said the issue was being used to generate political heat on the directions of the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat.

Prominent members of the Muslim community also alleged that the VHP, which had almost six months ago announced its nationwide drive to collect stones for construction of Ram temple, is “openly making mockery of judiciary”.

Reacting to the news, BSP president Mayawati said, “It is the responsibility of the state government to maintain communal harmony amid increased activities of the saffron forces.”

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has said that there was no indication from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.
