'Apologise or move out': Mani Shankar Aiyar, daughter Suranya asked to vacate home over Ram Temple post

| @indiablooms | 01 Feb 2024, 12:55 am

New Delhi/IBNS: Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar and his daughter Suranya Aiyar have received a notice to vacate their home in Delhi's Jangpura over a social media post condemning the Ayodhya Ram Temple consecration ceremony on Jan 22. 

The notice, sent by the Resident's Welfare Association (RWA), urges them to not indulge in rants that may disturb peace or hurt the religious sentiments of other residents.

"We do not appreciate a resident rant which may disturb the peace in the colony or hurt religious sentiments of the residents," the notice read. 

"In case you think what you have done in protesting against the consecration of Ram mandir at Ayodhya, we would suggest you to kindly move out to another colony where people can turn blind eye to such hatred," it said.

Suranya Aiyar, in a Facebook post on Jan 20, claimed that she is fasting in protest against the 'Pran Pratishtha' ceremony of the Ram Mandir.

She said that the fast was an expression of love and sorrow to fellow Muslim citizens.

In their response, RWA said, "What Ms Aiyar said through social media was unbecoming of an educated person, who should have understood that the Ram Mandir was being built after 500 years and that too after 5-0 Supreme Court verdict."

"You might take the cover of freedom of speech but please remember as per the Supreme Court of India freedom of speech cannot be absolute," it said.

Aiyar has been urged to condemn his daughter's post or leave the house.

The association urged the Aiyars to not provoke people and create hatred and mistrust among citizens.

"You may do whatever in politics for the good of your country, but please remember whatever you say and your actions count thus bringing good or bad name to the colony. Therefore, you are requested to please refrain from making such posts/comments," the notice said.

The grand consecration ceremony of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya was celebrated by millions of Hindus in India and across the globe.

The temple has been built on a 2.67-acre site inside a 70-acre complex and only its first phase is ready. The second and final phase is expected to be completed by December 2025.
