Even on the brink of Armageddon, India's only hope would be its Constitution. And it is proved yet another time.
Union Minister Ram Vilas and Lok Janshakti Party chief Paswan gave an exclusive interview to THE Hindu, and in the interview, Paswan said that it is not possible to pass a law to build Ram Mandir at the disputed place in Ayodhya, the Constitution of India doesn't permit it.
As per The Hindu, Paswan said, "Let me categorically tell you today that nothing will happen in this [matter]. The government does not belong to either Hindus or Muslims. The prime minister does not belong to the NDA or the UPA alone.”
Paswan also gave "beutiful" thoughts on morality, thinking that he is a political philosopher and not a BJP ally. He said if someone holds the chair of Prime Ministership, then Parliament is their Temple and Constitution is the only religion.
Hindutva organizations such as the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, and the Shiv Sena have been demanding that the Centre enact a law to build a temple as soon as possible in Ayodhya.
Ultra Right-wing organizations like Shiv Sena, Rashtriya Swayam Sewak Sangh, and Vishva Hindu Parishad are demanding to pass on an ordinance in the parliament in favor of building a Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.
Paswan also said, " And I believe that it is not just the Vishwa Hindu Parishad which is responsible for this frenzy, All of us share some of the responsibility.”
“The BJP may take a certain line since they are in competition with the VHP, the Bajrang Dal, the Shiv Sena and so on, But the issue is not discussed in Cabinet meetings. Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself has not spoken in support of it,” he added.
In another Interview given to The Economic Times, Paswan said, “Narendra Modi has said the constitution is his religion and parliament is my temple. He has never spoken on Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid. BJP may speak on it but the focus of the government should remain on the development and taking all sections of the society together,”
