ISLAMABAD (APP): Illegally detained Chief of Muslim Deeni Mahaz (MDM), Dr Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo, in occupied Kashmir, has said that the appointment of BJP leader Aditya Nath Yogi as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh was aimed at building Ram Temple in place of Babri Masjid in Ayodhya.
According to Kashmir Media Service, Dr Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the appointment of Aditya Nath Yogi as Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh was a clear sign that BJP had set its eyes on building Ram Temple in place of Babri Masjid before the general elections of 2019.
"If India has to face international pressure or backlash, Modi can wash off his hands by passing the buck on to Aditya Nath Yogi. If Muslims of India won't resist this effectively, the central government will join the bandwagon of temple building with all pomp and show," he said.
Dr Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo said that in such conditions, it was quite possible that Congress and other parties would also adopt soft Hindutva to remain relevant and satisfy the 100 crore Hindu population of India. "Therefore when BJP through Aditya Nath Yogi starts work on Ram Temple , Congress and other parties will find it difficult to oppose keeping in view the 2019 elections. In this way BJP will not only score a historical win in 2019 but with it the political importance of Muslims and other minorities in India will end forever," he added.
