Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) International president Praveen Togadia today dared Muslims not to stop Hindus from performing pooja at Bhagyalaxmi Temple near Charminar. He warned if the Hindus are deprived of pooja, the temple will turn into Ayodhya as people across the country will throng Charminar.
He alleged that the State Government, which was encouraging one particular community, was not even bothered about the attacks on Hindu shrines.
Speaking to the media here on Tuesday, Thogadia said “Virat Santh Sammelan” will be held on February 7, for which an action plan will be chalked out on temples, including Ayodhya in the Janajagaran Abhayas to be held in March next. He said that he had expressed his personal opinion to BJP senior leader Sushma Swaraj about the BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate stating that it was good if the BJP announced the name before the general election instead of now.
Responding to a question, Thogadia asked who would purchase the produce of local farmers if the Foreign Direct Investments allowed in retail sector. Criticising the Wallmart issue, he said the people would buy Pakistani rice and China’s electrical goods and not the local goods.
