Chennai: Referring to Ayodhya’s Ram Temple, DMK leader and Tamil Nadu minister Udhayanidhi Stalin on Thursday said his party is not in agreement with a temple that was constructed after demolishing a mosque.
Speaking to reporters in Chennai, Udhayanidhi Stalin, the son of Tamil Nadu chief minister MK Stalin, said his grandfather, iconic politician MK Karunanidhi, had said the DMK wasn’t against any particular religion or faith.
“We don’t have a problem with a temple coming up there. We are not in agreement with the construction of a temple after demolishing a mosque,” the DMK Youth Wing chief said, referring to the demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1992, PTI reported.
The leader, who triggered a massive row last over over his Sanatan Dharma remark, said religion shouldn’t be mixed with politics.
“Our Treasurer (T R Baalu) has already stated that spiritualism and politics should not be mixed,” said Udhayanidhi.
The consecration ceremony of the Ram Temple will be held in Ayodhya on January 22. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, other politicians, actors and hundreds of other celebrities have been invited to the event.
