Kanchi Seer has been insulted: Togadia

Sheela Bhatt in New Delhi | July 06, 2003 17:19 IST

Vishwa Hindu Parishad international secretary Pravin Togadia on Sunday accused the All India Muslim Personal Law Board of insulting Kanchi Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati.

He described the Board's rejection of the Kanchi seer's proposals for the resolution of the Ayodhya imbroglio as 'humiliation and insult'.

"People who have read last 1400 years of history of Muslims are not surprised. The rejection of Kanchi's seer formula suggests once again that Muslims are not reliable, they are not tolerant and they don't want brotherhood with Hindus," he said.

He claimed the formula was rejected because it was offered to a 'fundamentalist organisation' like the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, which 'doesn't even respect Supreme Court judgments'.

"Hindus have made a tactical error of asking only three out of 30,000 temples, which were demolished and where mosques were built in the last few centuries. We had been asking for Kashi, Mathura and Ayodhya only. Even then, they are opposing like hell," he said.

He claimed that along with AIMPLB the formula drama has 'exposed' all those Hindus who are anti-temple and anti-Hindu.

When asked what will be the VHP's next move, he said, "We are not at the mercy of Muslims. To build a Ram temple we don't need their support or help. We will trample the ideology that opposes the Ram Temple in Ayodhya. We will go ahead and build the Ram Temple."
