Is India headed for Ram Mandir 2.0? Watch what people have to say
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad wants to revive the Ram Mandir movement. RSS Sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat has expressed his desire that a Ram temple should be built in his lifetime. Joining the mandir bandwagon, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has criticised the BJP for forgetting its commitment towards building a Ram temple in Ayodhya. Taken together, these seem to be indications that the country is headed for Ram Janmabhoomi 2.0.
But is that actually the case? Probably not. Simply because the issue has very little traction on the ground. Catch spoke to a variety of people on what they thought the about the Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid dispute. While a few who are committed to the cause remained adamant that a Ram temple or a mosque should be built, a vast majority of others felt that maintaining peace between Hindus and Muslims was more important.
For instance, Mohammad Ahsan, a tailor said, "It is immaterial whether a temple gets build or a mosque, there should be peace in the country".
According to shopkeeper Raushan Kumar, "The heart should be pure, that is where the real Ram Mandir lies".
