Gyanvapi Mosque Case: Amidst the ongoing controversy over the Kashi Vishwanath Temple-Gyanvapi Masjid issue, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Wednesday said that facts should be allowed to come to the fore. He also said that the truth cannot be hidden for long. While addressing the journalist award function of RSS’s dialogue cell Indraprastha Vishwa Samvad Kendra, RSS’s Akhil Bharatiya Prachar Pramukh Sunil Ambekar expressed his views on this subject.
“There are some facts which are coming to the fore. I believe that the facts should be allowed to come out. In any case the truth will come out.” Ambekar said, “How long will you hide the truth? I believe that historical facts should come before the society in the right perspective.
Union minister became emotional as soon as he got information about Shivling
Significantly, the mosque is located close to the famous Kashi Vishwanath temple. A local court is hearing a plea by a group of Hindu women to offer daily prayers in front of its wall-mounted statues. During the ceremony, Union Minister Sanjeev Baliyan said that he got emotional when he came to know about the Shivling found in the mosque. He said that he was in Varanasi when this development was going on and he got emotional. Balian said that when a journalist told him that Nandi had been waiting for Shivaji for many centuries, his eyes filled with tears.
