After the VHP passed a resolution urging the Supreme Court and Centre to accelerate the pace of Ram Mandir case hearing, now Ramdev Baba has stated that the Indian Hindus and Muslims have the same DNA and the same forefather, Lord Ram.
The Yoga Guru in an appeal to build the Ram Mandir said that the Hindus and Muslims have the same blood, insisting that both the communities have the same forefather.
He said, "I say this openly, do a DNA test if you want. Hindu and Muslims have the same DNA because they (Muslims) are not from Saudi Arabia or Mecca Madina. They are our brothers. Their religion got changed 200-500 years back because of societal, financial or political factors. The forefathers can't change it. Our blood is one. Our forefathers are one. Their knowledge is Ayurveda and Yoga."
"Therefore, it becomes necessary that we appreciate the knowledge of our forefathers. And that is why I talk about Ram Mandir. And Lord Ram is not only a forefather for the Hindus. He is a forefather for the Muslims as well. Now 1-2 of our Muslim brothers, especially Owaisi Bhai said that he doesn't consider Lord Ram," he added.
Speaking to Republic TV he even said that PM Modi is a Ram bhakt himself and spiritual by nature, when questioned about the construction of Ram Mandir.
He said, "The country has got a strong government, 5-6 years before there was political anarchy and the country is free of that now. Modiji is a Ram bhakt, he is a nationalist, he is spiritual by nature. Ram is the forefather of our country, we have only one Lord."
The BJP made a pitch for the Ram Mandir on Saturday as Uttar Pradesh deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya while addressing the Dharma Sansad in Ayodhya said that the party will construct the Ram Mandir at any cost. He said that the BJP-led government will bring a law to build the Ram Mandir if the matter is not resolved through the ongoing Supreme Court ordered mediation process and by the decision taken by the apex court.
"I have been saying without hesitation that there are two solutions - talks and the decision of the Supreme Court. If both solutions fail, Ram bhakts wish that the Ram Mandir must be made by enacting a law, and that shall happen," he said.
