Hyderabad: Former BJP MP Balbir Punj, citing Mahatma Gandhi’s article in Young India said that he would have agreed with the demolition of Babri Mosque.

“In 1925, Gandhi was asked what to do if a mosque was forcibly built on someone’s land. He said that if ‘A’ was in possession of a piece of land and someone built a structure on it, be it even a mosque, ‘A’ has the right to pull it down,” Punj said.

During a launch of his book called “Tryst with Ayodhya: Decolonisation of India” on Saturday, March 2, he said India cannot exists if Lord Ram is fictitious.

“This country will live till Ram lives,” he added.

While alleging that the former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru politicized the Ram Janmabhoomi, Punj said, “It was a Hindu-Muslim issue in the post-Indepence era,” asking as to why “Hindus were not provided 2.77 acres of land to build a temple whereas a separate country (Pakistan) was formed after some Muslims demanded it.”
