The Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute is back in the spotlight.
The issue reared its ugly head after BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, during his address on the Ram temple at Delhi University last week, said that former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi had personally assured him of help for the movement.
Even, Swamy went one step ahead to say that despite Congress opposition, Gandhi had allowed the airing of the television show Ramayana, which created excitement among the public about the issue.
Will the mandir-masjid issue once again polarise public opinion in the country? Or, Will India rise like a phoenix and move beyond the dispute?
Swamy and AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi debate over the controversial issue which haunts the nation for the past 23 years – after the demolition of the Babri mosque in 1992.
When questioned why he is pre-judging the Ram temple case by saying that construction of the temple will begin by the end of the year while the case is still pending in the Supreme Court, Subramanian Swamy told Rajdeep Sardesai, Consulting Editor, India Today Television, that he is not pre-judging it, but making a forecast only.
“I am not pre-judging it, I am making a forecast. That the Supreme Court will decide in my favour. I did it when 2G scam was in the air. I said Raja will go to jail. I said it when the Natraj Temple was taken over by the government… These are my estimates on the basis of the evidence and the Allahabad High Court judgment”.

Swamy said he is neither trying to build public opinion to have a temple at the end of the year nor trying his political relevance known again. He has taken up the issue because many people had asked him to do so just because he was successful in the Ram Sethu case.
Swamy clarified that the Ram temple issue is not meant for political gains.
Lashing out at Swamy, Owaisi said when the matter is in the Supreme Court, let the apex court decide it based on the evidence available in front of it. Owaisi termed the temple politics as a clear cut hypocrisy of all the Hindutva forces.
“Swamy is saying about my way or the highway,” he said.
Citing an example, Owaisi said, “Beef is banned here for food but the torture of bull is allowed for sport. What is this? Is it not hypocrisy?”
“Secondly, if Ram mandir is an issue, let BJP say very clearly that we have forgotten governance…, we have forgotten revival of economy, we have forgotten stopping the entry of terrorists and killing our soldiers and let them say categorically, what Swamy is saying, that this is our new agenda which was always there and construction of Ram Mandir is the first and only priority of Modi government.” Owaisi asked.
Owaisi said, whatever the Supreme Court decides he and Swamy will be bound to accept it.
“There is a division of labour in BJP between Modi and Swamy. It is the RSS, VHP, Bajrang Dal and the political wing of BJP and Swamy is representing one arm of the Hindutva forces,” he added.
Almost six months after VHP announced its nationwide drive to collect stones for construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya, two trucks of stones arrived in the temple city on December 20, 2015, even as police said it was monitoring the situation.
Asserting its resolve to build the Ram temple, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) had in June 2015 announced a nationwide drive to collect stones for construction of the temple in Ayodhya and had also asked the Muslim community not to pose any hindrance.
