Ayodhya visit: Asaduddin Owaisi faces seers’ protest

Ayodhya, : Saints and seers in Ayodhya were protesting against AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi’s Ayodhya visit on September 7 after his party’s posters mentioned Ayodhya as ‘Faizabad’.

Faizabad district was renamed as Ayodhya by the Yogi Adityanath government in 2018.

The saints threatened to ban him from entering Ayodhya, claiming that the ‘mischief’ was intentional and a ploy to polarise people on religious grounds. If Faizabad was not removed from the posters, the seers threatened to cancel his rally, which is organised under the aegis of the ‘Shoshit Vanchit Samaj Sammelan.’

Owaisi is scheduled to address a public meeting at Rudauli, a Muslim-dominated constituency, about 40 kilometres from the Ram Janmabhoomi on September 7.

Mahant Raju Das of Hanuman Garhi said, “Why is Owaisi renaming Ayodhya as Faizabad? We condemn his communal ideology and demand removal of the posters.”

Mahant Paramhans Das of Tapasvi Chavni, said, “Owaisi’s anti-Hindu move is also an insult to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. If posters bearing the name Faizabad are not removed, Owaisi’s entry in Ayodhya would be barred and the public meeting at Rudauli will be disrupted.”
