Get ready for Ayodhya verdict, buy swords, not gold on Dhanteras: BJP leader
A BJP leader in Uttar Pradesh asked people to buy “iron swords instead of gold jewellery and silver vessels” on Dhanteras.
“The Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya issue is expected soon and we are confident that it will be in favour of the Ram temple. However, this could vitiate the atmosphere, so it is advisable to stock iron swords instead of gold jewellery and silver vessels. These swords will be useful for our own protection when such a time comes,” BJP’s city president for Deoband, Gajraj Rana told reporters.…
This is not for the first time that Rana has made a controversial statement. On the eve of the Lok Sabha election campaign, the BJP leader had stated that “Darul Uloom (in Deoband) is synonymous with terrorism”. He had also once said that “there is a ‘Shiv Ling’ inside the Mecca and Hindus used to live there once”.
