Mumbai, September 15, 2012: Ashok Singhal, historical leader of the extremist group Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), is trying to garner he nationalism of the Indians ahead of the general election in 2014. President of the Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC): “An attempt to build hysteria, but the majority of Hindus do not believe them.”

Vote for a Hindu Nationalist government in the elections of 2014, and they will we rebuild Ayodhya. There are still two years to the elections for the new prime minister of India, but for the radical Hindu Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) the campaign has already (or almost) begun. The recent public statements of Ashok Singhal, longtime leader of the VHP show as much.  He said: “Only a central government that is pro-Hindutva [ideology that theorizes the creation of a country inspired in all respects on the principles of Hinduism, ed] can pave the way for the construction of a temple in Ayodhya”.

Ayodhya in 1992 was the scene of one of the bloodiest attacks against the Muslim community of India. On 6 December of that year, about 150 thousand militants of the Hindu nationalist Sangh Parivar razed the ancient Babri Masjid mosque. The destruction of the place of worship was the culmination of a long campaign backed by Hindu radicals, which claimed ancient ownership to the land on which the Babri Masjid stood. The assault resulted in violent riots, which killed more than 2 thousand people, mostly Muslims. On 30 September 2010, the High Court of Allabad ruled that the area was to be divided into three parts among Hindus and Muslims litigants in an attempt to mitigate the long standing tensions surrounding the area.
