My thoughts on the most divisive temple issue in Bharat that caused the loss of thousands of lives and destruction of families for more than 70 years:
But it will not be a temple with just an idol of Lord Ram.
Idols are just stones.
It is a persons ideals that live forever and must be constantly practiced and followed, not just worshiped.
It will be a True Temple, the Janaki Ram Karuna temple, for SEVA (Selfless service) – the highest ideal of Lord Ram, the supreme embodiment of Dharma.
Brother, there is no greater religious duty than परहित SEVA (Selfless service), no greater sin than oppressing others.
If we really want to honour Lord Ram, we should fight for the restoration of not just an idol of Ram, but we should fight for and devote our lives and efforts for the restoration of Ram Rajya and its highest ideal: परहित SEVA (Selfless service).
Even if a person is an atheist and does not worship Lord Ram’s idol, but if he always lives and practices परहित SEVA (Selfless service), he is a more true worshiper of Lord Ram’s than an Anarya idol “worshiper” of Lord Ram who does not even follow Dharma.
In fact as Ram Jethmalani said(watch video from 4:45):
I will never build the Temple to Ram till Muslims themselves willingly lift a brick to help build it.
Dr Kalam was not a “Muslim”, he was a true follower of Islam.
Infact if one is a true follower of Islam, they will know the following famous Sufi saying:
Oh my God, Oh God, is hidden inside You.
In fact even a true follower of Islam like Dr Kalam had a vision of Ayodhya as the “Humanity’s Healing Center”.
Visit Dr Kalam’s website and read his article on Ayodhya as the “Humanity’s Healing Center” which he gave many times as a speech. (search for the keyword Ayodhya).
Extract below from Dr Kalam’s article – Ayodhya as the “Humanity’s Healing Center”:
I visualize the holy land of Ayodhya to emerge as an unblemished symbol of humanity’s quest for service and beacon of the nation’s spirit of harmonious integrity by the year 2020.
I envisage Ayodhya to be the founding place for a state-of-the-art center of multidimensional healing center and a place which alleviates the pain of all forms – physical, mental and spiritual.
Dr Kalam just said SEVA (Selfless service) to humanity.
Dr Kalam was not just a true follower of Islam, but more importantly he was a proud citizen of Bharat who deeply appreciated, studied and even enjoyed speaking about and spreading the traditional heritage of Bharat .
He even knew, understood and chanted shlokas in Sanskrit.
Dr Kalam did not consider himself a Muslim first.
He considered himself a Bharatiya first.
I am sure almost 99% of the so called “protectors” of “Hindu” culture would be completely unaware of what Dr Kalam knew about our traditional heritage, and would not even know 1/100th of what he knew.
And he was not ashamed about it, he was proud of it and proudly displayed his knowledge about the Sanathan Dharma.
Most people did not consider Dr Kalam one of the greatest Muslim Presidents of Bharat.
It really did not matter to anybody at least to me whether he was Muslim or not.
Na Hindu, Na Mussalman, pehle bano achhe Dharma ke insan.
SEVA (Selfless service) is a universal religion.
All the many names it is known by are just labels.
The nectar in each of these labelled bottles is the same – sweetness, compassion and kindness to the whole world, not just kindness to humanity alone.
