Former Delhi High Court Chief Justice Rajindar Sachar today slammed Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik for his comment that a Ram temple should be built in Ayodhya and said it was a “fit case” for removal from the post.

Calling Naik’s comments as “gratuitous insult” to right thinking people, Sachar said he was shocked at the “constitutional impropriety” of the Governor.

“His describing it as a desire by every one is a crude partisan political statement. Surely he knows that this disruptive action of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has already done immense damage to the secular face of India,” he said.

Sachar, who had brought out a report on condition of Muslims in India in 2006, said, “It is a gratuitous insult not only to the biggest minority but to overwhelming population in in the country who are against creating a religious divide.”

“I have no doubt that at the minimum it is a fit case where the least that central government is expected to do is to transfer him to another state though frankly it is a fit case for removal of the Governor,” he said.
