After namaz room in Jharkhand House, BJP asks for temple space

RANCHI: Protesting against the earmarking of a dedicated room for offering namaz inside Jharkhand’s new assembly secretariat, the opposition BJP demanded on Saturday that Speaker Rabindra Nath Mahto allot space for a Hanuman temple on the assembly premises. The ruling JMM has, however, dismissed BJP’s demands.
Ranchi MLA C P Singh accused the Hemant Soren government of “indulging in appeasement politics and religious polarisation”
“We are not against any religion and in this country, and as per our Constitution, everyone is free to practise the faith of their choice. Having said so, Parliament and Vidhan Sabhas are regarded as temples of democracy and not of any specific religion. Therefore, if the speaker can provide space for namaz, we also urge him to provide a place for the setting up of a Hanuman temple,” he said.
Singh said he wasn’t aware of any such designated place. “Even when I was speaker, there was no such place. Some MLAs had demanded an early adjournment of the House on Fridays to offer namaz, but I had said they were free to go but stalling the House would not be appropriate,” he said.
