BJP MP Subramanian Swamy on Sunday urged Muslims to hand over their share of the land in Ayodhya to support the development of a grand Ram temple there.
“We will give them land at another area for the building of a mosque. It will increase the relationship between Hindus and Muslims,” he said at an event here.
Swamy insisted that a grand Ram temple would be built at Ayodhya, where a mob razed the 16th century Babri Masjid in December 1992.
He also declared that both former Prime Ministers Rajiv Gandhi and P.V. Narasimha Rao desired a Ram temple to come up at Ayodhya.
The development of a Ram temple was a matter of faith for Hindus and the community had every right to make it without further delay, he added.
“Rajiv Gandhi was the only real Hindu leader in the Congress and he desired from the core of his heart that a Ram temple be constructed at Ayodhya.”
Swamy was speaking a Virat Hindu Sangam function.
He said Narasimha Rao too wanted a Ram temple in Ayodhya.
