Mulayam’s statement on 1990 firing flayed

Lucknow, Aug 29 (IANS) Religious leaders on Monday slammed Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav for justifying the 1990 firing in Ayodhya that left 16 ‘kar sevaks’ dead.

Mulayam Singh courted controversy after he said at an event here that for the country’s integrity he would not have bothered even if 30 people had been killed.

He spoke at a book launch, referring to the October 30, 1990 firing by security forces at the ‘kar sevaks’ who tried to storm the Babri mosque in Ayodhya.

Mulayam Singh was then the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.

Jagadguru Ramanandcharya Swami Ramdineshacharya said Mulayam Singh should not have been insensitive in his blind pursuit of votes of minorities.

Raj Kumar Das of the Ramvallabhakunj accused the Samajwadi Party leader of insulting the ‘kar sevaks’ and warned he will face dire consequences for this statement.

Ramdas, the administrator of Hanumangadhi in Ayodhya, said Mulayam Singh was trying to polarise Uttar Pradesh ahead of the 2017 assembly polls and projecting himself as a champion of the Muslim community.

The Vishva Hindu Parishad demanded that a case of murder be slapped on the former UP Chief Minister.
