VHP attacks Vajpayee on temple issue

June 28, 2003 12:00 IST

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Friday attacked Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee on the Ram Temple issue accusing him of holding talks with 'Muslim fundamentalists'.

The outfit opposed any talks with the All India Muslim Personal Law Board saying they are not a party to the dispute.

"VHP is preparing for a big fight on the Ram Temple issue, but because of Vajpayee ten Pakistans could be created as he is engaged in talks with Muslims, who do not have faith in the Indian constitution," VHP general secretary Praveen Togadia said.

"In 1948 Mahatma Gandhi had surrendered to Muslim fundamentalists and subsequently Pakistan was created. The Vajpayee government is again talking to those who do not respect the Indian constitution or Supreme Court and are a body of fundamentalists," Togadia said.

"However, the rank and file of the BJP are unconditionally with us on the construction of Ram temple even though some leaders are trying for a deal on the issue," he claimed.
