Hindutva hardliner and Union Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti said on Saturday that Ram Temple in Ayodhya was her ‘belief’ and she was ready to go to jail for it.
“Ram temple is a matter of belief for me and I have immense pride in it, if I have to go to jail for it I will go, if I have to hang myself for it I will do it,” She said after meeting Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath.
Asked about the discussion of Ram temple construction with Yogi Adityanath, she said, “We don’t need to talk about Ram temple. We (Uma and Yogi) are not strangers on this issue. Yogiji’s guru Mahant Avaidnath was the leader of the temple movement.”
Uma Bharti, who participated in the Ram Temple movement, mentioned that Supreme Court has already directed to solve the matter outside the court.
Recently, the top court had reserved its order on a petition to restore conspiracy case against Uma Bharti, L K Advani and Murli Manohar joshi in connection with Babri Masjid demolition case.
