Communist Party of India (Marxist) normal secretary Sitaram Yechury stated on Wednesday that the ceremony to put the muse stone of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was a violation of the Constitution in letter and spirit.
Mr. Yechury stated the occasion, which was “televised globally by the national broadcaster Doordarshan,” had confirmed the problems raised by the CPI(M) Polit Bureau on Tuesday.
“The state takeover of the construction of the temple in the presence of the Governor and the CM [Chief Minister] of U.P. [Uttar Pradesh] is a negation of the secular democratic character of the Indian Republic. It is also a violation of the Supreme Court verdict that directed the temple construction to be undertaken by a Trust,” he stated in a collection of tweets.
He stated the occasion gave “retrospective legitimisation for the destruction of the Babri Masjid.” The Supreme Court had termed the demolition of the Babri Masjid on the web site an “egregious violation of law” and had known as for punishment of these concerned.
“The construction has begun before any such punishment. This ‘bhumi puja’ function is a naked exploitation of people’s religious sentiments for partisan, political purposes and brazenly violates the letter and spirit of the Constitution,” he stated.
He additionally stated the occasion was in violation of the general public well being protocols of the Union Health Ministry throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, together with the ban on non secular gatherings.
CPI normal secretary D. Raja stated: “Today’s ceremony and the participation of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief has confirmed that the RSS runs the government. Also the Prime Minister and U.P. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s presence makes one religion the defacto religion of our country, putting the secular democratic nature of our Republic in danger.”
