Ram Janambhoomi alone is not core of Hindutva: Govindacharya

Former BJP leader N Govindacharya on Monday said though he was not aware of the contents of the Liberhan Commission report, the core of Hindutva ideology was not based on the Ram Janambhoomi issue alone.

“Core of Hindutva ideology does not depend only on the single issue of Ram janmabhoomi alone. It covers such a wide aspect of the society itself,” Govindacharya told reporters.

Govindacharya is a close associate of former BJP leader Uma Bharti, who is an accused in the Babri mosque demolition.

“I am feeling relaxed that after all the report has come out and as far as the contents of the recommendation are concerned, nobody knows now. I will be able to comment on the recommendations when it will be available for us,” he said.

Questioning the delay in submission of the report, Govindacharya said it should have been completed “some two years back”.

“I cannot understand the reason of such delays. If the report is worthy of that much delay, it will be proved only after going through the report,” he added.

Along with Bharti, senior BJP leaders L K Advani and M M Joshi are among the accused in the case.
