After the recent announcement of the groundbreaking ceremony for the long awaiting Ram temple construction, all the eyes turned to Shiv Sena. Maharashtra Chief Minister and President of Shiv Sena, Uddhav Thackeray will attain ceremony or not was a question. Party MP Sanjay Raut has claimed that Thackeray will attend the groundbreaking ceremony.
When asked about the invitation, Raut just said, “it will come”. “Bhoomi Puja” ceremony of the temple is planned on 5th August. Moreover, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to visit Uttar Pradesh for it.
According to Sanjay Raut, Shiv Sena shares sentimental, national and religious ties with this issue and therefore Thackeray will go for the “bhoomi pujan.” In an interview with a TV channel, he recalled that Shiv Sena has a remarkable contribution in Ram temple’s decision and many Shiv Sainiks had shed their blood for the purpose. He reiterated that Uddhav Thackeray frequently visits Ayodhya. Even after becoming Chief Minister of Maharashtra, he visited it.
Raut believes that thousands of devotees of Lord Rama would have joined the ceremony if not for the COVID-19 crisis. The prevalence of the contagion demands to obey of norms of physical distancing for the safety of the nation. Coronavirus is infamous for its rapid spread and the world is tussling to control its spread.
On November 9th, 2019, the apex court of the country paved the way to construct Ram temple. It directed that a trust should be made for the construction. Also, it ordered Centre to allot five-acre plot for Sunni Waqf Board for the construction of the new mosque. The nation prudently welcomed this decision. Indians again proved “unity in diversity” in that crucial conditions.
