BJP leader for daily hearing of Ram Janmabhoomi case in SC

New Delhi, Jan 12 (IANS) BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Tuesday said he had written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for moving the Supreme Court to seek day-to-day hearing of the civil appeals in the Ram Janmabhoomi case.

“I have written to the prime minister in this connection. The case regarding the Ram temple in Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh should be heard on a day-to-day basis,” Swamy told media persons here.

Swamy said he will convince Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, whose party is in power in the state, for the temple construction.

As for a controversial seminar held at Delhi University on the Ram Janmabhoomi issue last week, Swamy said more such seminars should be held across the country.

The two-day seminar on ‘Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple: Emerging Scenario’ was organised at DU’s arts faculty from January 9 by Arundhati Vashishtha Anusandhan Peeth.

“Such a seminar should be organised in the Jawaharlal Nehru University too,” Swamy said.

The JNU in New Delhi is a reputed bastion of Left-leaning student outfits who strongly opposed DU’s decision to allow holding of the seminar, alleging it will “communalise” the campus.

The BJP leader said such seminars will be organised across India and he had already received offers from Gujarat and Tamil Nadu for the same.

Acting on a bunch of appeals, the apex court stayed the 2010 Allahabad high court verdict that divided the 2.77-acre site into three parts. It also ordered status quo at the site but restrained any religious activity on the 67 acres of adjoining land taken over by the Centre.
