Ram Mandir And Modi’s Election Campaign

Prime Minister of India Narendra Damodar Das Modi is all set to inaugurate the Controversial Ram Mandir on 22 January 2024. The Dispute of Ram Mandir traces back to British Rule. After the Statue of Lord Ram was placed inside the Babri Masjid By Hindu workers between 22- 23 December 1949 the Masjid was closed for Muslims and they were not allowed to offer prayers. Muslim had prayed for 500 years when it was shut for muslims after the placing of statue of Lord Ram. On 6th of December 1992 the Masjid was attacked by a Mob of 150,000 volunteers of VPH and the present ruling party Bhartiya Janta party known as   karsevaks. The mob turned violent after the  leaders gave provoking speeches. The mob of 150,000 become tough for police to manage and they were successful in demolishing the Babri Masjid. The demolition of the mosque resulted in several months of inter-communal violence between India’s Hindu and Muslim communities, causing the death of an estimated 2,000 people in Bombay (now Mumbai) as a direct consequences. The Ram Mandir is built on 2,000 graves. I have a really serious question. Will Ram actually come to place that’s built on 2,000 graves? For me the answer is no. I believe Lord Ram must be really annoyed and heart broken with these people claiming to be Ram bakhts. Well as Ram Mandir famously called Ram Janmabhoomi is all set to be inaugurated, the whole india is filled with the air of Ultra Hinduism thoughts. They are behaving as if they have found the solution for their every problem. A school teacher with her student in a viral video is being seen dancing on various song one among them is “Desh ka bacha bacha Jai shir Ram bola ga” which means “Every Child of India will chant Ram is Great ”. This ultra hyper nationalism is on display for the inauguration of Ram mandir which is being built after destroying the Babri Masjid. The government has announced half day in government institutions and to surprise but not to shock AIIMS Delhi has also declared half day on 22nd of january. I am just wondering what if someone fell ill where will he go? Who will be responsible if anything happens to him or her? India is blinded with their ultra Hindu thoughts, nothing else in going on in their minds other than Ram mandir.

Parliamentary Elections are due this year and Modi is using this event fully to campaign for himself and for his party. The way to Ram mandir is having more posters of Modi than Ram. I am confused is going to be Ram Mandir or Modi Mandir. These days the spineless India media is busy glorifying Modi who is sleeping on floor and is just drinking coconut water. But one of the member of the spineless India media published that modi also ate fruits. So this time Modi got fact checked by his own people. All the four Shankaraachaarys are not going to the 22nd January event because they are objecting to modi doing inauguration of Mandir. No Media is talking about it just because they are opposing Modi. Had they been in his favour the media would have been singing their praise. Indian media is playing a significant role in pushing people to ultra-Hinduism and nationalism. The media glorifies everything Modi does even after he’s wrong.

Lal Krishna Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi these are the two men who actually should be given credit for Ram mandir but these people aren’t spoken about and have been asked to sit at home because of “Cold weather ”. Only because of Advani’s Rath Yatra Ram Mandir has been built and it’s all his hardwork that Modi is second time prime minister because it’s Adavni’s Rath yatra that made BJP famous and acceptable among people otherwise BJP never had such huge numbers. Advani is the guy who saved Modi from being sacked as CM back in 2002 riots. Vajpayee was ready to remove Modi but Advani stopped hi. In an interview when Vajpayee was asked about his loss in 2004 elections he sited Gujrat riots as the reason. Atal Bihari Vajpayee is no less he also played a good role in demolition of Masjid.

Well, now everything is set and the long pending demand has been fulfilled, let’s see what change will Ram Mandir get to India.
