Danish Kaneria took to social media to congratulate Hindus on the occasion of Ram Mandir bhoomi poojan.

As Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for the construction of a temple dedicated to Lord Ram in  Ayodhya, wishes poured in from across the world. People expressed their gratitude by sending their messages on social media, and among those was former Pakistani spinner Danish Kaneria.

The former cricketer on Wednesday stated that the day was historic for all the Hindus across the world as “Lord Ram is our ideal”. He also said that “the beauty of Lord Ram lies in his character and not in his name”, adding that “he is a symbol of victory of good over evil.”

The Indian PM along with the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath and other dignitaries performed the bhoomi pujan for the Ram temple in Ayodhya. In his speech after the ritual, Modi said that the Ram temple will be a ‘modern’ symbol of Indian culture and will inspire future generations.

Incidentally, Kaneria had earlier slammed teammate Shahid Afridi for his controversial remarks against India and PM Modi. The former Pakistan cricketer had then said that the all-rounder should think before making any statement and what impact it has on Pakistan cricket.
