Comaparing Prime Minister-elect Narendra Modi to Rajput king Prithviraj Chauhan, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Ashok Singhal on Saturday said the new government will help restore “Hindutva’s lost rule” by facilitating the construction of a Ram Temple in Ayodhya, imposing a Common Civil Code and banning cow slaughter.

“There was a large section in the country that dreamt of the return of our lost rule. After Prithviraj (Chauhan), it is now that Hindutva has got the reins of Bharat,” Singhal told a press conference here.

Saying that a Ram Temple in Ayodhya would be built soon under the Modi-led regime, he said, “Mazboot sarkar bani hai, mazbooti se banega  (It is a strong government, a strong temple will be built)… the responsibility of Ram Temple has come on the new government, and they should do it.”

Listing the VHP’s priority issues, he said, “Common Civil Code is not only a key to the fundamental unity and integrity of Bharat, but its implementation is also binding in the light of the Supreme Court’s decree. Legal prohibition of horizontal religious conversions is a necessity to ensure peace and well-being of the society.”

    Modi does not need advise from VHP, who were put in its place in Gujarat. Modi will do whatever needs to be done to take India forward, carrying all Indians.

    BJP's phenomenal win in the election with NAMO as PM is truly historic in the sense of true freedom for smaller Bharat after hundreds of years of foreign dependence following the great mistakes of the last free Indian king Prithviraj that lead to his sad defeat in the hands of Muhammed Ghori. Truly speaking, Hindus have no land of their own on earth except this small Bharat. Hindus are the true secularists people as their holy books speak love and peace for all people. We need love and peace among all our Indian brothers and sisters to ensure rapid economic growth.

    These demands should be by Modi ji. Ram Temple is symbol of Hindu in India. I am appalled to know that , It took 5 centuries for Hindus to claim their holy land. Foreign Invader "Babur" demolished the Templ. This shows the tolerance level of Hindus in India. Modi Ji please built Ram Temple.

    VHP should not talk non-sense like Hindus have got reigns back. Looks like Modi is keen on economic development, strong but fruitful foreign policy and even uniform civil code, but extremist Hinduism is not his agenda and that is something India does not need. Divisive policies of Congress and it's pseudo secularism is over and it need not be replaced by other divisive policies. What we need is truly secular government that treats every Indian equally.

    I am with the VHP if their demand is to establish the ethos of ' Hinduism' - universal brotherhood( Vasudhev kutumbkam), equality of all faiths, and all humans being part of one Absolute( Parmatman). Rule as per the ethos of HInduism, and not pseudo- secularism that we witnessed since 1976, will surely restore the glory of India.
