‘No invite’ for Ram Temple
Amid the ongoing controversy regarding the distribution of invitations for the January 22 inauguration ceremony of the Ayodhya Ram Temple, Thackeray declared that he did not receive an invitation. Nevertheless, he asserted that he doesn’t require an invitation to visit the temple and can go to Ayodhya whenever he pleases. He stated,
“Ram Lalla is mine too. I can go anytime I wish. I can go now, I can go tomorrow. When I became the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, I went to Ayodhya. I visited Ayodhya before that also. Yes, I have not received any invitation and I don’t need one. I just have one request that this event should not be made a political one.”
Ram Temple priest replied to Thackeray’s comment
Acharya Satyendra Das, the head priest at Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple in Ayodhya, responded to Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray’s statement that he has not received an invitation to the consecration ceremony of Ram Lalla in Ayodhya, stating that invitations have been extended only to the “devotees of Lord Ram.”
Acharya Satyendra Das said, “Invitations are only extended to those who are devotees of Lord Ram. It is totally wrong to say that BJP is fighting in the name of Lord Ram, our PM is respected everywhere. He has done immense work under his tenure. This is not politics. This is his devotion.”
