Inauguration of Ram Temple: Amidst the vigorous preparations going on for the inauguration of Ram Temple, former Jammu and Kashmir CM Farooq Abdullah targeted BJP by raising many questions. He said on Friday (January 19, 2024) whether Lord Ram belongs only to BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
National Conference President Farooq Abdullah said, “Does Lord Ram belong only to BJP and RSS? Who is this to call anyone? Do we need anyone’s invitation to go to Ram temple? I am going for Umrah so do I need a letter? Ram belongs to everyone, no one has taken the contract. Why do these people consider Lord Ram only as their own?
He further said that Ram belongs to everyone. He doesn’t know about his books. In fact, invitation letters have been given to heads of political parties, Chief Ministers and personalities from various fields to attend the consecration ceremony of Ram Lalla to be held on January 22.
