Kar seva not at Babri masjid site: VP Singh
By Khadijatul Kubra, Lucknow

Union Home Minister Lal Krishna Advani is facing an all-round attack for uttering "lies" before the Justice Liberhan Commission, probing events leading to the demolition of over 467-years-old Babri Masjid. While former prime minister Vishwanath Pratap Singh in Varanasi stuck to his word that he was ready to take part in karseva for the construction of the Ram temple at Ayodhya at an adjoining or alternative site but not at the disputed site where Babri Masjid stood, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and Bahujan Samaj Party vice president Ms. Mayawati sharply attacked LK Advani in Lucknow during a separate press conference, saying he was again trying to whip up communal frenzy to gain political mileage in the coming assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh. Reacting over the statement made by union home minister L K Advani before the liberhan commission Mr Singh said in meet the press programme here that Mr Advani was telling only a half truth that he (Mr Singh) had expressed his eagerness to perform karseva at Ayodhya, Mr Singh said that he had in fact informed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) that no karseva would be allowed at the disputed site as per the direction of the supreme court.

In a counter question to Mr Advani, the former prime minister asked whether he was ready to perform karseva, with him at an adjoining or alternative site, leaving the disputed site untouhced.

Disclosing the circumstances under which the government ordinance regarding the take- over of the adjoining land was withdrawn, Mr Singh said every party involved in the dispute- the VHP and the babri masjid action committee, opposed the government action, making it useless. then there was also a possibility of the court rejecting the government move, he added.

He said the withdrawal of the ordinance was a correct decision. It was also vindicated when the supreme court refused to intervene into the matter as the P V Narsimharao government sought the court's opinion on the nature of the Ramjanambhoomi- babri masjid site.

Mr Singh said parties involved in the dispute raised objection on the ordinance and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief professor Rajendra Singh even accused the government that land requisition was aimed at construction of a masjid.

He said if the ordinance in itself was the solution to the Ayodhya dispute, successive governments were free to invoke an ordinance. He asked why the BJP-led NDA government at the centre was hesitating to pass an ordinance to solve the problem.'
The former P M said it was prime minister Atal Bihar Vajpayee who went to the president to hand over the letter of withdrawal of support to his government when he disallowed karseva at Ayodhya in 1990. Yet during his own rule he warned the vhp that the government would not allow any karseva at the disputed site. He said the top bjp leadership- failed to recognize that any person who was holding the post of prime minister was bound to uphold the Indian constitution and no government would allow karseva at Ayodhya as things stood today.

In a lighter vein Mr Singh added, "if I was so eager to perform karseva at Ayodhya, how come Mr Advani landed in jail (his rathyatra was stopped and Mr Advani was arrested).
He said the present phase of the dispute started in 1989 when the congress government allowed shilanyas near the disputed site.

Then the vhp leaders and hindu dharmacharya, gave written undertaking that they would honour the court verdict on the disputed land. Later, the vhp dishonoured its undertaking and took the stand that it would not accept the court verdict nor would it change its stand.

He said the government had a certain limitation in solving the Ayodhya dispute due to its religious and sentimental nature. "You can not argue with religions and religious beliefs and when there is more than one religion the problem further compounds," he added.

Mr Singh said as it was argued by many that the solution of the dispute can be reached either by mutual understanding or by accepting the court verdict.

Criticizing the efforts made by some political parties to drag Ayodhya issue at the centre stage in the context of the forthcoming assembly elections in uttar pradesh, Mr Singh said politics should be done on real issues, economic and social. Religious issues will not solve the difficulties faced by farmers, workers and students, he added.
