Urging Pakistan to “refrain from communal incitement”, India issued a terse rebuttal to Pakistan’s condemnation of Ram Mandir at Ayodhya. Prime Minister Narendra Modi took part in the grand bhoomi pujan ceremony at the temple town on Wednesday.
Pakistan’s foreign ministry had on Wednesday condemned building of the Ram Mandir at Ayodhya and described the judgement by India’s Supreme Court that paved the way for the construction as “flawed”.
Taking strong exception to Pakistan’s comments, Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said, “We have seen the press statement by the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on a matter internal to India. It should desist from interfering in India’s affairs and refrain from communal incitement.”
Reminding Pakistan of its devilish designs, he said, “While this is not a surprising stance from a nation that practices cross border terrorism and denies its own minorities their religious rights, such comments are nevertheless deeply regrettable.”
In a statement issued on Wednesday, Pakistan’s Foreign Office had said, “The flawed judgement of the Indian Supreme Court paving the way for construction of the temple not only reflected the preponderance of faith over justice but also the growing majoritarianism in today’s India, where minorities, particularly Muslims and their places of worship, are increasingly under attack.”
Pakistan’s statement also said that the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) had passed resolutions condemning the demolition of the Babri mosque and the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was constructing the Ram temple as part of an agenda “of converting India into a ‘Hindu Rashtra’ “.
