BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has cause to be very happy right now. The former Cabinet Minister who has over the decades, been a strong advocate for the Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit tweeted soon after the Supreme Court verdict calling it a victory and urging the government to announce a Bharat Ratna for Ashok Singhal.
At this hour of victory let us remember Shri Ashok Singhal. Namo Govt must immediately announce Bharat Ratna for him— Subramanian Swamy (@Swamy39) November 9, 2019
To refresh your memory, Singhal is one of the pioneering forces behind the shift of the Ayodhya issue from a mere local land dispute to one of the biggest religious and political talking points of today. The working president of the Vishva Hindu Parishad for over two decades, he played a pivotal role in making the VHP’s first dharma sansad to discuss the issue a huge success.
Swamy too has a long history with the Janmbhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute, going back to 1992. The then Prime Minister PV Narsimha Rao had sought Swamy’s support and help in resolving the dispute.
After a user shared a letter between the two leaders from 1992, Swamy retweeted the same.
