Mahabharat among Ram bhakts

Ayodhya: The Ramayan is witnessing a Mahabharat in the present head-on collision between the Hindu Mahasabha on one side and R.S.S. with its affiliates VHP and BJP on the other side.

In the national executive meeting of Mahasabha held recently in Ayodhya, the RSS and its affiliates have not only been accused of betraying the Hindu cause but also of cowardice.

Accusing the RSS combine of minting money in the name of temple construction, Mahasabha spokesperson JB Kshatriya asserted that the right of construction of the temple rests solely with the Mahasabha and Nirmohi Akhada. The Sangh and its affiliates have neither any role nor any legal locus standi. He said that the Sangha claims to be a well wisher of the Hindus whom it has, in reality, divided into several mutually contesting rival groups. This they have done not for temple construction but only to stake its claim on the disputed site and thereby amass huge funds.
