Alleging that SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi have joined hands to build a mosque and an Islamic centre next to the Babri Masjid site in Ayodhya,Vishwa Hindu Parishad patron Ashok Singhal said they will not allow it.

“Mulayam Singh Yadav has been wanting to acquire land next to the 70 acres land around the Sri Ramjanmabhumi site. Mulayam Singh Yadav and Sonia Gandhi have ganged up towards this end. A retired judge of the Allahabad High Court has been engaged for about two years now to make efforts to evolve a so-called consensus,” Singhal was quoted in a press release issued by the VHP on Monday.

Singhal has alleged that Mulayam,whose party heads the Uttar Pradesh government,has taken this initiative under pressure from the “Islamic forces”. He warned of “grave consequences” against the move.

“From the labours being put in by the judge it seems that Mulayam Singh Yadav wants to build a mosque and an Islamic cultural centre on the said plot of land adjoining the 70 acres land of the Central government. The Islamic forces are compelling him to do so,” Singhal alleged,warning that “if a reckless decision is taken,it would lead to grave consequences”.
