Swamy kicks off Ram Mandir seminar at DU, says nothing will be done forcibly

New Delhi (PTI): Amid protests outside the Delhi University, senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy went ahead with a seminar on the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya where he asserted that nothing will be done forcibly or against the law.

“Construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya is ‘mandatory’ for revival of our culture. We have started and we will not give up until it is made but nothing will be done forcibly and against the law. We have full faith that we will win in the court,” he said in his inaugural address at the two-day seminar.


Claiming that former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi had promised him of support for the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Swamy appealed to Congress to come forward and support the cause.

“Rajiv Gandhi had personally told me that Ram Mandir will be built and whenever he will get an opportunity he will also help and the first help he did was that despite party opposition, he started the television serial on Ramayana which created a new excitement in public,” he said.

“He had said they will permit the foundation laying, too. He had also said in his campaign for 1989 elections that there should be Ram Rajya in the country. I hope Congress will also come forward and support as this is not just our demand but that of the country,” he added.

Swamy had earlier this week said that the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya would begin by this year-end with the cooperation of the Muslim community.

“In our country , over 40,000 temples have been demolished, we never say that all those should be reconstructed…but there cannot be a compromise on three of them — Ram Janmabhoomi temple, Krishna temple in Mathura and Kashivishwanath, if Ram Temple is constructed there will be easy way for others, discussions can be done but not compromise,” he said.

“Ram Mandir is an aim for us. And when the Muslims leaders had committed that if it is proved that there was temple earlier, they will let us reconstruct it there, not fulfilling that commitment can be contempt of court,” he added.

The two-day seminar titled “Shri Ram Janma Bhoomi Temple: Emerging Scenario” is being organised at DU’s Arts Faculty by Arundhati Vashishtha Anusandhan Peeth (AVAP), a research organisation founded by late VHP leader Ashok Singhal.

There was strong opposition from the student groups to DU’s decision for allowing such a seminar alleging it would “communalise” the campus and push “saffron agenda”.

The protesters including that from left-affiliated student wings AISA, DSF, SFI and Congress-affiliate NSUI, staged demonstrations outside the protest venue and were detained later.

Swamy, who is the chairman of AVAP, delivered the inaugural address at the seminar which will see historians, archaeologists and law experts discussing various topics including “Lord Ram’s character and values, and their impact on Indian culture”, “History of the Ram temple and related archaeological findings”, “Legal issues around Ram temple” and “Experience and future of Ram temple”.


  1. “Construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya is ‘mandatory’ for revival of our culture.

    Is it possible to make Suhasini Haidar, a SUHASINI SWAMY again?

  2. Dear readers,

    From a sociological point of view, education is a process by which and through which behavior changes are brought about in the individual in relation to the group in which he lives and comes into contact. Looking at Nazi education through this sociological framework, one is better able to understand not only how Hitler rose to power, but how the sweeping changes he made to the educational system allowed for the systematic indoctrination of a nation.

    Controlling education was a way of taking over the minds of children from kindergarten to university. Education was a major tool by which the Nazis’ racial policies were promoted and implemented.

    The atmosphere within the classroom was very different from the one students had known previously. The teacher would enter the classroom and welcome the group with a ‘Hitler salute’, shouting “Heil Hitler!” Students would have to respond in the same manner, often eight times each day – at the start and end of the day, as well as the beginning and end of each lesson

    Hitler and the Nazis wanted all young Aryans to be physically fit and perfectly obedient. In Nazi Germany no one was allowed to think for themselves. A core curriculum was introduced, so that the Nazis could monitor, at all times, what was being taught in schools. All textbooks were re-written and had to be passed by the Nazi Party. The Nazi national curriculum included PE, German history, geography, biology and maths.

    Narendra Modi said in a pre-election speech in the same university campus my real thought is– Pehle shauchalaya, phir devalaya’ (toilets first, temples later),”.Now Swami from his own party wanted construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
    It is now evident that saffronisation of education system is given by the importance by RSS.

    To remind Swami, Ashok Singhal,Rajiv Gandhi,Indira,L.K Advani all were fallen to the might of Almighty.Is Swami is next to face his wrath?

    UP assembly elections is due in 2017. They took cow to Bihar and got ‘dung’ in return. Love Jihad which played in Muzaffarnagar riots during 2014 pre election won’t be won’t play polarising factor. So they use the best arsenal from ‘Babri Masjid’ which will begin end of this year.

    Jai Hind

  3. Subru Swami? Wasn’t he kicked out of his so-called ‘teaching post’ from Harvard or some podunk place in the USA?

    I wonder what our Lard Original Rampai from Yumreeka has to say about this.

    He (Rampai) calls himself ‘atheist’. Yet, when it comes to his Saaanathana Dharma, he gets all prickly! Go on ya Rampa.
