JAIPUR: Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leaderAshok Singhal on Friday claimed that BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is a “creation of VHP” and is best suited to unite people of all castes, creeds and religions.
“All political parties (barring BJP) are not only openly committing loot, corruption, and generating black money but also dividing the society in the garb of religion, language,” Singhaltold a press conference here. “Modi, who is a creation of VHP, is himself a party and we all can take his shelter. He has power and capability to unite people of all communities, castes and religions,” he told reporters.
The country cannot become a ‘mahashakti’ (super power), unless people from all walks of life unite, and this can only happen under the leadership of Modi, who can unit people from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, he said.
“Secularism is a theory popularized by political parties, which has divided the nation,” the VHP patron said.
Referring to the recently held “sant meeting” in Delhi, Singhal said the emphasis was to make India a spiritual country and contain religion conversion. The VHP leader also reaffirmed his outfit’s commitment for building a Ram temple at Ayodhya. “Bhagwan Ram is sitting under a tent in Ayodhya,” Singhal said, adding that Ram temple will be built by passing an act in Parliament, and “Modi will do it when time comes”.
When asked about the UP government’s crackdown on VHP’s ’84-Kosi’ yatra, Singhal said, “Mulayam is an enemy of Hindus, but whatever Hindus want will be done there in Ayodhya.”
