Ram Temple in Ayodhya: A long campaign ends. Whats Next? The | India News


NEW DELHI: Start of construction of a RAM The temple in Ayodhya marks the fulfillment of a key Sangh Parivar goal and is evidence of the growing acceptance of the saffron vision of nationality and cultural identity, according to RSS.
The question about what’s next for the temple movement is not particularly troubling, a senior RSS official said, adding that the construction at Ram Janmabhoomi and the symbolism of the temple would draw more followers to Sangh’s opinion that Ram and the values that it represents are fundamental. to the cultural and social life of India.

RSS believes, said the official, that the political aspects of the temple movement were the result of opposition from Congress and several other parties that did not read the popular environment. “It was not a question of tactics for RSS, which has always had deep convictions about the sanctity of janmasthan,” he said.
The Hindu claim, he noted, was ultimately settled by a unanimous Supreme Court ruling that the “secular” parties clearly did not originally anticipate.
The RSS success story is the growing acceptance of their thinking and the temple will be a powerful magnet in this regard. A similar approach was not required for the Kashi Vishwanath-Gyanvapi mosque, the RSS official said, adding that there was no need for a “roadmap” to resolve the dispute at issue. The main problem is acceptance of Sangh’s beliefs about “Hinduness” and identity. “Once a certain thought and courage enter society, these problems are solved. One way or another emerges. Not all problems need a similar solution, “he said.
RSS also believes that the presence of its boss Mohan Bhagwat at the function in Ayodhya was a rejection of campaigns against the organization. The organization has often found itself isolated and under attack by regressive views, but the Ram temple movement established that it can indeed be an agent of change, as it sought to alter the definition of nation that challenged the mainstream. .
