How do you know where Ram was born? asks Mani Shankar Aiyar 

Mani Shankar Aiyar

Delhi, Jan 8 :Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar has stirred another controversy with his comment on Babri demolition by questioning people’s rationale of insisting on making the Ram temple at a specific location and asking them how they knew where exactly Lord Ram was born.

Speaking at a function ‘Ek Shaam Babri ke Naam’ organised by Social Democratic Party of Indais (SDPI) on Monday, Aiyar said that question is not to whom the land where Babri Masjid once stood belongs, but whether “Indian Muslims have a right to live in India with respect”.


“Make the temple by all means, if you want to. But how can you say ‘Mandir wahin banayenge’ (we will make the temple there only). Dashrath (Lord Ram’s father) was a great king and his palace had more than 10,000 rooms, it is believed. Who knows which room was where?

“That is why, to say that Ram was born here and we will make the temple here only and will demolish the Babri Mosque for that.. . Is it wrong to have faith in Allah for a Hindustani,” he said.

Earlier in his address, he said: “The day Babri Mosque was martyred, India’s integrity was also martyred.”

Without naming any particular party, he said it has never happened that Indians have confided their faith in those who do not believe in secularism.

“You got one chance in 2014. And you grossly misused that chance,” he said in an apparent stab at the ruling party.


Congres leader said that Narasimha Rao-led government in 1992 failed to prevent the demolition of Babri Masjid and did not take the steps that were needed to be taken.

Aiyar said that no excuse could ever justify as to why this “unconstitutional activity” was not stopped.

Ex cabinet minister Shrad Yadav was also present on the occasion.


    • Then you will agree with me that India will become Myanmar or Chechnya or Syria.

      Forget Babri Masjid.. just think if you be able to live in this country with your 4 Ammies and 4 wives.

      1947 mein duniya ka bahut barra Big Muslim Migration hua. Aab phir Dunyia ka ussy bee burra Big Muslim Migration hoga.

      Aab koi Gandhi Nahi. Koi Muslim Nawab Nahi, Koi British Fouj or Muslim Police Nahin.

      It will be difficult to convince Indians that India needs useless Muslim who chant Pakistan Jindabad, Stone Pelters, All life welfare eaters, with Army of Children, Hindu or India hating in India.

      Go to your country… Pakistan

      Muslim are not fit to live in a secular democratic non Muslim country anywhere in the world… at least India. Build your Babri Masjid in Pakistan

      Already a Citizen Bill pass today excluding Muslims in Parliament. You will see more Muslims spefic bills now.

      Muslim are simply not respected and wanted in India anymore.

  1. Such deameanig comments for Hindu gods, must be music to Muslim ears !

    But peacefools don’t understand that these statements by congress are tailor made for them.

  2. Why are you afraid and shielding yourself behind the curtain of ANONIMOUS.
    Come forward.
    This is my country. I will fight for my right as we did with British.
