Ayodhya shrine first sign of decolonization



BY PRAKASH M SWAMY

Justice G R Swaminathan, Judge of the Madurai Bench of

the Madras High Court said here recently that the

construction of temple for Shri Ram at Ayodhya is the

first sign of decolonization. He said Madras State was

renamed as Tamil Nadu and similarly what was once

Babar Masjid has now become Ram temple and this is

also part of Dravidian Model

He was speaking after releasing a book “Decolonizing

India’ by noted author and journalist Balbir Punj

organized by Vigil in Mylapore

Swami Mithrananda head of Chinmaya Mission in

Chennai who received the first copy from Justice

Swaminathan said the construction of a temple on the

birth place of Lord Ram was a long pending demand of

Indians and it was witnessed by the way the entire

country and many parts of the world celebrated the

consecration of the holy shrine.

Balbir Punj in his acceptance speech said Muslim

residents of Ayodhya had no problem with the

construction of temple for Lord Ram and when the then

Union Home Minister Sardar Vallabhai Patel wanted to

construct he faced with stiff opposition from the then

Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

The country was divided on the basis of religion during

independence thanks to the support of Gandhi but

Hindus had to wait for 75 years to build a temple in the

birth place of Lord Ram, he said.
