“When I said Hindu, I meant Sangh Parivar”: Sunni Waqf Board lawyer Rajeev Dhawan clarifies controversial remark

In response to this question, on Wednesday, Rajeev Dhawan said that he used the word Hindu for the Sangh Parivar and not for the ordinary Hindu.

 

New Delhi|¬†Explaining the context of his reported comments in the Ayodhya dispute case, Sunni Waqf Board lawyer Rajeev Dhawan said that when he said Hindu, he was referring to Sangh Parivar. Recently Rajeev Dhawan had said that Muslims never disturb the peace. Only Hindus spoil the atmosphere. In response to this question, on Wednesday, Rajeev Dhawan said that he used the word Hindu for the Sangh Parivar and not for the ordinary Hindu. “Many people of the Sangh are involved in acts of violence, lynchings, killing people and breaking mosques,” he said.

Blaming the media for blowing it out of proportion, Rajeev Dhawan said, “All of this is a trick of TV (news channels). When I say Hindu, I do not speak of ordinary Hindus. When I use the word Hindu in relation to the Babri Masjid, it means the Sangh Parivar. I speak of those from the Sangh Parivar who are involved in acts of violence, lynchings, killing people and breaking the mosque.” He said in the Supreme Court that all those who broke the Babri Masjid were Hindu Taliban.

The decision to give 5 acres of alternative land to the Muslim side

On November 9, the Supreme Court gave its verdict on the 134-year-old Ayodhya temple-mosque dispute. The court gave the entire disputed land of 2.77 acres of Ayodhya for construction of Ram temple. A 5-member constitution bench had decided to give 5 acres of alternative land in Ayodhya to the Muslim side to build the mosque, which is almost double the disputed land. The then Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had said that the demolished structure is the birthplace of Lord Rama and this faith of Hindus is unquestioned.
