UP CM sacks minister for asking Muslims to help build temple

UP CM sacks minister for asking Muslims to help build temple - Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Friday dismissed party man Om Pal Nehra for proposing Muslims should give up their claim on mosques and instead help in rebuilding the Ram temple in Ayodhya.

While no official reason was given, UP government officials confirmed Nehra's sacking by chief minister Akhilesh Yadav.

Speaking at an official function of the agriculture department in Bijnor on December 23 - the birth anniversary of Chaudhary Charan Singh, Nehra had said, "Where can a Ram temple be built if not at Ayodhya? Muslims should help in building a Ram temple in Ayodhya and a Krishna temple in Mathura and give up their claim on mosques there. In fact I would say that Muslims should join Kar Seva (voluntary work) for the Ram temple."

Last week, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad had got a new lot of stones for the construction of the temple at Karsevakpuram in Ayodhya. The ruling party law makers had protected the arrival of stones as a routine activity that had sustained for many years.

Soon after the demonstrations by petitioners in the Babri movement, against the VHP's activities, chief minister Akhilesh Yadav had called a meeting of senior government functionaries in Lucknow to maintain a strong watch on the activities in Ayodhya.
