NSUI Students Protest Outside Swamy’s Ram Temple Seminar
NSUI students staged a protest against the Ram Janmabhoomi seminar. Police have detained some students.
Amid protests outside the Delhi University, senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy went ahead with a seminar on the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya where he asserted that nothing will be done forcibly or against the law.
Subramanian Swamy, BJP Leader
Construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya is ‘mandatory’ for revival of our culture. We have started and we will not give up until it is made but nothing will be done forcibly and against the law. We have full faith that we will win in the court.
Claiming that former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi had promised him support for the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Swamy appealed to the Congress to come forward and support the cause.
Swamy claimed that over 40,000 temples have been demolished in the past, building back three of them would be a small compromise that the country should be ready to accept.
Students of Delhi University, particularly belonging to National Students Union of India (NSUI), the youth wing of the Congress staged a protest against the lecture. Police have detained some students, reports ANI.
According to a DNA report Swamy had lashed out at those opposing a seminar and dubbed them as “intolerant”.
Subramaniam Swamy, BJP Leader
There has been a lot of hue and cry about so-called intolerance...This is a seminar on a topic which is very important, it is not being attended by politicians but by historians, researchers and academicians.
Delhi University authorities are maintaining that they have nothing to do with the subject of the seminar and the organisation had booked the venue for the event which is available to outsiders for hiring.
