Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha leader Rajyashree Chaudhuri said on Saturday that she will recite Hanuman Chalisa in the Shahi Idgah here on December 6, the day the Babri Mosque was demolished 30 years ago.
“We are firm in our statement and we have decided to revive Sanatan Dharma under Hindu Mahasabha. Without it freedom is incomplete,” said Chaudhuri, the national president of the Mahasabha.
She said that Hanuman Chalisa will be recited to “sanctify” the property and hand over Lord Krishna’s birthplace to the Hindu society after “purifying” it.
Chaudhuri said she also wanted to recite Hanuman Chalisa on the Idgah last year, but claimed that the district administration refused the permission and “raised hurdles”.
“That’s why we changed jalabhishek’s place from Mathura to Delhi, and we did it in Jantar Mantar,” she said.
Chaudhuri said that a new hope had arisen among the Hindus through the Mahasabha.
“The truth is that the entire complex was bought at auction by our ancestors (Hindus) during the British era. The other side (Muslims) has nothing here,” she claimed.
Chaudhuri tried to enter the Idgah but was stopped by the police.
The district magistrate and senior police officers could not be reached for comment despite repeated calls.
