Swami Chinmyanand said that a few "narrow minded" people were against the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.

Former Union Home Minister Swami Chinmyanand said that a few “narrow minded” people were against the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya and hoped that it will be built with people’s support.

Describing Hashim Ansari, the oldest litigant of the Babri mosque case, as a saint, he said “Hashim Ansari is talking as a ‘bairagi’ (saint) about Ramlala’s existence”.

Hashim Ansari had said that “the issue of Ayodhya dispute we are fighting in the court is not a conflict for a mosque or a temple, but it is a battle between rule of law and anarchy, it is a confrontation between the order and the mob, so let’s see what is the future.”

“I will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and I am sure he will do justice,” Ansari had said.

Swami Chinmyanand, who is also the chief priest of Parmarth Niketan Ashram, Haridwar, on the margins of an event here, told reporters that youth of India are inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and claimed that Modi is more popular than Nawaz Sharif in Pakistan.

He was made Union minister of state for Home in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government in 2003.
