It was a courtesy meet, too late to solve Ayodhya dispute by talks, says Adityanath on Ravishankar meet

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath made it clear on Thursday that it’s too late now to solve the Ayodhya dispute by talks.

Ayodhya Dispute is a decades old dispute over the claim of land, which resulted in the demolition of the Babri Masjid by right wing Hindu extremists lead by BJP leader L.K. Advani. Hindu activists who demolished the mosque claimed that the place was the birthplace of Ram, a Hindu god, and that his idol had mysteriously appeared inside the mosque at night.

Talking about his meeting with Spiritual Guru Ravishankar UP CM said, “It was a courtesy meeting. There was no conversation with him regarding Ram temple”.

It is worth mentioning here that ahead of his visit to Ayodhya on Thursday, the Art of Living founder Ravishankar on Wednesday met Yogi Adityanath and several leaders of Hindu religious organisations.

Ravishankar, who announced earlier this week that he was involved as a mediator in the Babri Masjid/Ram temple dispute of his own will and would visit Ayodhya to meet all stakeholders, said he wanted unity and amity.

In a conversation with news channel ABP News, UP CM also commented about Padmavati controversy and said that ‘Distorting history isn’t a good thing.’

Interestingly, in a letter written to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, UP Principal Secretary (Home), Arvind Kumar said the Censor board should be apprised about the public resentment over the alleged distortion of facts in the movie.

The letter stated that “in view of the civic polls, polling for which is scheduled on November 22, November 26 and November 29 and the counting on December 1, and also the ‘Barawafat’ procession by Muslims on December 2, the film’s release can pose serious security issues”.
