Centre Ready With Ram Mandir Law, '2-3' SC Judges Should Quit if They Can’t Give Justice: RSS Leader Indresh Kumar

The RSS national executive member warned that the country is not so handicapped that it would let “two-three” judges “throttle its beliefs” by delaying the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya.

Chandigarh: RSS’s senior leader Indresh Kumar has launched a stunning attack on the Supreme Court bench hearing the Ayodhya title suit, and warned that the country is not so handicapped that it would let “two-three” judges “throttle its beliefs” by delaying the construction of a Ram temple.

Claiming that the Narendra Modi government has plans to bring a law to facilitate the building of the temple at the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid site, he said it has only been silent till now in view of the Model Code of Conduct for the ongoing Assembly elections in five states.

"The country will not burn (if Ram temple is built at Ayodhya), we have seen this in the case of Triple Talaq," he said.

Slamming the CJI Ranjan Gogoi-led bench for its decision to defer the hearing till January, the Sangh’s national executive member said, “I haven’t taken names because 125 crore Indians know their names… the three-judge bench… they delayed, they denied, they disrespected”.

He claimed that there was growing anguish against these “two-three” judges and went on to claim that they should “think if they want to remain judges or resign” if they are not ready to deliver “justice”.

“All are looking forward to justice. They still have belief… but the judiciary, judges and justice have been disrespected because of two-three judges… It should be heard early. What is the problem?” he asked, while addressing a seminar on "Ram Janam Bhoomi Se Anyaay Kyun (Why Injustice towards Ram Janmbhoomi) at Punjab University.

Refusing to accord an urgent hearing on the Ayodhya land dispute case, the top court has deferred the politically sensitive matter to the first week of January to fix a schedule for its hearing.

The top court order has triggered a chorus of demands from within the BJP and various Sangh Parivar outfits for promulgating an ordinance, or enacting a law in the winter session of parliament, to build the Ram temple before the 2019 Lok Sabha polls without waiting for the verdict.

"The public is ready, the government is ready, but there will be a few people who will oppose the law. But some miscreants would pose no problem," he said.

The RSS national executive member said such an atmosphere should be built in the country that all parties are forced to support it when the government brings an ordinance or law to build the Ram temple.

He added that if someone goes to the Supreme Court against the law that the government plans to bring, “it is possible that the Chief Justice will issue a stay (Ho sakta hai aadesh laane ke khilaf koi sarfira Supreme Court jayega, toh aaj ka Chief Justice usey stay bhi kar sakta hai)”.

Calling the deferment of the hearing in the case as the “black day” for judiciary, he said the beliefs of the people were disrespected. “Is it not so serious? Supreme Court did not do it. Judges did not do it. Judicial system did not do it. Justice did not do it. But a few persons,” he said.

Kumar asserted that there must be a unique Ram temple in Ayodhya just like a unique Vatican, Kaba and the Golden Temple exist. "There may be lakhs of temples, gurdwaras, churches and mosques but there is only one Vatican or the Kaba or the Golden Temple. Similarly, Lord Ram's birthplace is one," he added.
