If BJP wants revenge they should take it through politics, not religion: Azam Khan

Rampur (Uttar Pradesh)[India], Apr. 1 : Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan on Saturday launched a scathing attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alleging that the latter is trying to take revenge from them by raking up religious issues like 'Ram Mandir'.

"Some matters are being raised just to incite sentiments of the society. If BJP wants to contest the 2019 Lok Sabha elections by defaming us, then this is not an honest approach.

If BJP wants to take revenge from us then they should take it politically. There is no humanity in taking revenge from us by involving our education, religion and belief," Khan told ANI.

Khan further said the matter of Ram Mandir would be dissolved only after the Supreme Court's verdict, adding that the same should be accepted by all.

"I have been saying that whatever the court will decide it should be accepted by all. The court will do justice to this case. I have been saying from the very first day that both the faction should not fight with each other over it and accept the court's decision," he added.

Earlier in the day, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy asserted that the saffron party is ready to allot land for the mosque and put an end to the prolonged argument over the matter.

"The Ram Temple row needs to be solved soon; the chaos which is prolonging since ages is not good. It is Ram's birthplace and we all know that, BJP is also ready to allot land for the mosque," said Swamy.

The apex court earlier on Tuesday said the Ayodhya dispute is a sensitive and sentimental issue, adding that the matter should be settled amicably.

The court asked parties concerned to sit together to arrive at a consensus and asked BJP's Subramanian Swamy to consult the parties and inform it about the decision on March 31.

The court also suggested if required, a principal mediator can be chosen by the court for settling the issue.

Chief Justice J.S. Khehar said if the parties want him to mediate then he is ready for the task..
