Watch: BJP red faced as Katiyar says Ram Temple needs one more sacrifice

New Delhi, March 18: BJP MP Vinay Katiyar sparked another storm on Saturday by saying that Ram Janambhumi demands sacrifice from the Hindu community.
"Ram Janmabhoomi is demanding another sacrifice, just like several karsevaks (volunteers) achieved martyrdom when Mulayam Singh ordered shooting on December 6, 1992. The Hindu community must get ready for another revolution," Katiyar reportedly told mediapersons after a public rally in Ayodhya here on Saturday.
Vinay Katiyar was referring to the Babri Masjid demolition incident, which claimed several lives of several karsevaks and protesters.
The comments by the BJP leader came hours after Subramanian Swamy wrote a ltter to the prime minister, recommending an ordinance on Ram Mandir.
Earlier on Saturday, Subramanian Swamy wrote a letter to PM Modi saying that 'Govt can bring an ordinance on ownership of Ram Janmbhoomi land and thus pass a law to hand over the land to an eminent body of religious leaders especially those versed in Agama Sastra, with a direction to build Ram temple'.
"Congress-influenced lawyers have the agenda to halt the progress in the case. Therefore I thought we must make Constitution and law our weapon - bring an ordinance," Swamy said in his letter.
