Ram temple will come up in Ayodhya once members of all communities are taken into confidence on the matter, RSS’ Muslim outreach wing Muslim Rashtriya Manch has said.
Describing Lord Rama as “symbol of Indian-ness”, the Manch, patronised by senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar, said it is making efforts to make Muslims aware of the “truth” that God is at the centre of faith for Hindus, while Mughal Emperor Babur does not claim similar space for them.
It is believed that Babri Masjid was named after Mughal Emperor Babur and built during his reign.
“Ram temple will come up, but only when we take each other into confidence. There is a need to speak to Muslims, members of other communities over this,” Mohammed Afzal, national convener of the Manch, said here recently on the sidelines of an event.
Afzal said Lord Rama is at the centre of faith of majority Hindus, but Babur is “not at the core of belief of Muslims” and added that the Manch is engaged in activities aimed at conveying this “truth” to members of the minority.
