Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) today rejected a fresh proposal for accommodating both a mosque and a temple to resolve the Ayodhya dispute and smelt a conspiracy in it as the suggestion was evidence of “mental bankruptcy”.
“This is not the first time that such a proposal has been floated. This type of conspiracy can never happen. To think that Mandir and Masjid should be constructed together is evidence of mental bankruptcy,” VHP joint general secretary Surendra Kumar Jain said told reporters.
He said this when his attention was drawn to a fresh initiative by the main litigant in Babri Masjid case Hashim Ansari.
Ansari met Akhara Parishad president Mahant Gyan Das today to discuss proposals for resolution of Ayodhya dispute and put it before the Supreme Court.
The formula for out-of-court settlement broadly talks about the 70-acres of disputed premises accommodating both mosque and temple with a partition wall which will be 100 feet high, according to Gyan Das, the chief priest of Ayodhya’s famous Hanuman Garhi temple.
Jain said the proposal itself was an “insult” to judiciary as the High Court had clearly stated that there was a temple which was demolished for a mosque.
“These people are not aware of law. We cannot accept this,” he reiterated.
Strongly defending the ‘ghar wapsi’ programme of the Hindu outfits, he described the initiative as a kind of “vaccination to kill the virus of hatred.”
At the same time, he supported enactment of law against religious conversion.
