The Unnecessary controversy over Ram Temple


Kalyuga has no measure and extent to which one can go down and cheap. That is the only thing that comes to mind after we heard the baseless charges hurled by some politicians over the Ram Mandir land scam. That these people didn’t bother to check the land records and other facts and documents shows how politics have undermined all other things whether it is God or religion, our faith and trust. Democracy together with politics have become our greatest nemesis today. However the silence of ruling party BJP and allies at critical times is more damaging. It has to play tough with uch notorious politicians who all play without any conscience or morality.

In March 2021, Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra through its General Secretary Champat Rai executed an Agreement to buy an additional piece of land for the purposes of additional construction to facilitate pilgrims who would be travelling to the Ram Temple. While the Supreme Court had given the ‘disputed land’ to the trust, land surrounding the Ram Janmabhoomi is owned by various individuals and entities and thus, has to be acquired privately by Temple trust to build facilities that would help the devotees which are expected to visit the temple once it opens. Champat Rai has been on record stating that the land surrounding the temple land was being acquired for several reasons, including Vaastu considerations, building facilities for pilgrims etc. [1]

In this specific case, the 1.208 Ha land was decided to be purchased by the Trust at Rs 18.5 Cr. from one Sultan Ansari and one Ravi Mohan Tiwari. Ansari and the others had in turn bought the same land at just Rs 2 crore from one Kusum Pathak. This particular land in question has been embarked on for acquisition by the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra near the Ayodhya railway station to build a facility for the pilgrims who would be visiting the temple after it is constructed. [1]

The Aam Aadmi Party had used the sale deed of the earlier transaction between Ansari and Kusum and the Agreement to Sell between Ansari and the Trust to allege a “scam” in the procurement of this land by the temple trust. Aam Aadmi Party’s leader Sanjay Singh alleged that Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra through its General Secretary Champat Rai bought a piece of land at an exponentially higher price. Samajwadi Party’s Pawan Pandey made similar allegations. [1]

He alleged that the land value was estimated at Rs.2 crore during the registry, but the Trust made an additional payment of Rs.18.5 crore to the seller just five minutes later. While the transactions were made in the name of Champat Rai, General Secretary, trust member Anil Mishra and Rishikesh Upadhyay, Mayor, Ayodhya were witnesses to the registry. He demanded an inquiry by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Department (ED) in the matter. [1]

A careful examination of the sales deed and other documents proves beyond that the charges hurled by this politician Sanjay Singh who has already been found to be extra smart and cheap are baseless and motivated. [1]

We request the readers to go through this article in Opindia to check the sales deed. There is also a statement issued by Sh Champat Rai which clarifies the whole thing.


Indian politics is taking a new low which will only be further depraving as we go ahead. There is no conscience , morality left and all are becoming power lunatics. The new regional kings like Kejriwal, Mamata Banarjee and earlier Uddhav Thackeray have shown that politics is no more for the simple and the cultured. The more one can speak lies, and be mentally corrupt the better are the chances for success.

There is a great danger looming ahead for all of us. It seems that the opportunity has been lost by the morally correct people and citizens of the country. It’s now all in the hands of the immorals and we are left with no choice but to be mute observers and watch the continuous decay of people , politics and national interest.

This is going to be the toughest challenge for bjp and Sangh parivar as to how they can preserve their sanctity and also attack those who are mad after power and positions.

The BJP has to be more methodical, patient but also has to increase its attack on parties like AAP and its leaders who have got a free hand not only to hurl charges at the center but also to run campaigns in far flung Punjab , Gujarat etc. This shows their power ambition. However if the BJP has given them an opportunity to run freely it also shows the incompetence of the ruling party.

A case has to be put up in the court against the AAP party Sanjay Singh and dharnas and morchas have to be launched against the AAP and all its leaders. Their corruption and malpractices have to be taken to the public , which is the least the BJP must do. It also has to bring some credible leaders who can match the skills of Arvind Kejriwal . Else BJP will find itself in more deep troubled waters as days pass. There is no one more dangerous than A politicians with sky ambitions
