Vishva Hindu Parishad leader Pravin Togadia today demanded the central government pass laws providing for death penalty for cow slaughter and to build Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
“Notwithstanding the pendency of the case (regarding the Ram Temple issue) in the court, the union government should pass a legislation for the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya,” the International Working President of VHP said.
Speaking after inaugurating a religious programme in Vrindavan, Togadia also said the central government should enact a law for punishing cow slaughter with death penalty.
He appealed to the Muslim community if they are aware of the elements who involve in cow slaughter they should disclose their names so that innocent people don’t get harassed.
On the JNU row, the VHP leader said, “the problem came up since no action was taken against anti-national elements in Kashmir. Unless stern action is taken against such elements, the problem may arise in other parts of the country.”
“Afzal (Guru, the Parliament attack convict) was an anti-national and a traitor and those supporting him should be hanged,” he said.
On the recent killing of a VHP activist in Agra, he said government should take stringent action against those involved in the attack.
He said the 10-day pro-reservation protest by the Jat community in Haryana was a result of wrong economic policies of the government and “unless job opportunities are provided to the youths such demands may come from other sections of the society as well.
