Unlike Ayodhya, there is enough proof…: BJP's Uma Bharti demands construction of temples in Kashi and Mathura

BJP leader Uma Bharti on Saturday demanded that like Ayodhya, temples should be built in Kashi and Mathura so that get the right to worship,

She told news agency ANI, "Just like Ayodhya, Kashi and Mathura will also get their due. There will be no agitation this time because evidence in Ayodhya had to be excavated, but there's no need for excavation in Kashi and Mathura, all proof is there…"

Bharti, who was was one of the main protagonists of the Ram Temple movement, also said she had proposed in Parliament in 1991 that Ayodhya, Mathura and Kashi should be handed over to Hindus.

Hailing the Varanasi district court's order on Gyanvapi matter, Bharti stated she had worshipped the idols inscribed on the walls of Gyanvapi in 1993.

“The Muslims have the right to go to the court. They follow the orders given by the court."

The former Union minister posted on her X account, "After the decision of the Varanasi District Court, I would again request that like Ayodhya, the temples should be built at the original places in Mathura and Kashi and the right to worship should be given to Hindus. Hand over these places to Hindus, this is the complete solution."

The Varanasi district court on July 21 last year directed the Archaeological Survey of India to conduct a "detailed scientific survey" -- including excavations, wherever necessary -- to determine if the mosque located next to the Kashi Vishwanath temple was built on the remains of a temple.
