“Krishna asked for 5 villages, Hindus asking for only 3 places” : Yogi Adityanath 

RNS: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath shed light on significant developments concerning Kashi and Mathura, where the contentious Gyanvapi and Shahi Idgah mosque stand, during his address to the Assembly on Wednesday.

Drawing parallels with the Mahabharata, Yogi invoked the narrative of Lord Krishna’s quest for peace, wherein he sought five villages from the Kauravas. Yogi underscored that today, the Hindu community only seeks the development and preservation of three key centers of their faith – Ayodhya, Kashi, and Mathura.

“These three centers hold profound significance for our faith. There is a collective resolve, and when politics intertwines with it, divisions arise,” remarked Yogi.

Touching upon the topic of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, Adityanath expressed contentment at the installation of Lord Ram in the temple. He lauded the perseverance exhibited in realizing the temple’s construction and stressed the importance of fulfilling commitments. Adityanath asserted, “We do not just speak, we act upon our words.”

He also highlighted the hardships endured by Ayodhya under the previous government’s rule, drawing parallels with the injustices faced by the Pandavas in the Mahabharata.

The Ram Janmabhoomi land in Ayodhya witnessed a prolonged legal battle, culminating in its allocation for the construction of a temple following a landmark Supreme Court judgment in 2019.

The Krishna Janmabhoomi site in Mathura and the Kashi Vishwanath temple complex in Varanasi stand as the two other disputed lands that Hindus have been fervently advocating for.

Talking about the latest court order that allowed Hindus to pray at one of the sealed cellars, Vyasji ka Tehkhana, at the Gyanvapi site, Yogi Adityanath said, “After the people got to see the celebrations in Ayodhya, Nandi Baba said, why should I wait.”
