What is the Pakistani media saying about the consecration of Lord Rama in Ayodhya?

Today is the consecration of Lord Rama's statue in the Ram Temple in the city of Ayodhya, which has spread joy throughout the country. Not only is the consecration ceremony at the Rama Temple generating headlines in Indian media, but worldwide media is also covering the story. News about this event has also been released by media outlets in Pakistan and Qatar.


Today, Monday, the statue of Lord Rama is being dedicated in the magnificent Ram Temple that is currently being built in Ayodhya. Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be present for the consecration event. The program states that the event will start at 12:05 PM and go until 12:55 PM.

People are celebrating the consecration ceremony of Lord Rama in Ayodhya in a manner similar to Diwali, and it is resonating throughout the entire country. In addition to India, there are talks going on abroad over the Ayodhya consecration ceremony of Lord Rama. The Prime Minister is scheduled to perform the consecration of Lord Rama today in the Ram Temple, which was built after the Babri Masjid was demolished, according to articles published in Pakistani newspapers.


The prominent daily in Pakistan, ‘The Dawn,’ has released an opinion piece by Parvez Hudbhoy in which he states that a Ram temple is currently being built in the location of the former Babri Masjid, which dates back five centuries. The vicinity around the Ram Temple is on the verge of developing into a Vatican City-like metropolis.

‘Hindutva’s message targets two groups,’ the story continues. First, Muslims in India must always remember that they are the unwelcome offspring of invaders who devastated an ancient land and pillaged its glory, much as Muslims in Pakistan regard their Hindu people as second-class citizens with less privileges.

Pakistani media further report that an antique library and a century-old madrasa were set on fire in March 2023 by a mob screaming “Jai Shri Ram.” Muslim conquerors under the command of Bakhtiyar Khilji had set Nalanda University on fire in the twelfth century, reducing the university’s extensive library to ashes. According to the publication, Hindutva supporters’ destruction of madrasas and libraries was akin to “tit for tat.

The second message is for the opposition to the BJP, particularly the Congress, asking them to leave secularism and enter the religious arena to compete with the BJP,’ the piece writes, mentioning the second goal of Hindutva. If they don’t, people would think negatively about Hindus.

According to an article in the Pakistani publication Pakistan Today, a large temple will be opened on Monday in a region that millions of people believe to be the birthplace of Lord Rama. For the past 35 years, the temple’s construction has been ongoing. The building of the temple was a long-standing political problem for the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), led by Modi, which has helped the party retain its influence in this area and win elections.

According to the publication, Hindu communities in Ayodhya have been presenting the inaugural event as a representation of the Hindu awakening for generations, following their subjugation by Muslim and colonial forces. The occasion is also perceived as Prime Minister Modi’s election campaign’s tangible start ahead of the national elections that are scheduled for May.

The journal reports that while both the Hindu and Muslim groups asserted their claims to the temple site, it remained a source of contention for decades. The 16th-century Babri Masjid was destroyed in 1992 by a Hindu mob who claimed the location was the birthplace of Lord Rama. The Muslim Mughals had razed a temple in order to construct the Babri Masjid in 1528. The land was granted to Hindus in 2019 by the Supreme Court of India, which also directed that Muslims be given a separate area.

A Pakistani publication notes, “The temple is being constructed on 2.67 acres of land, with the complex spreading across 70 acres,” when praising the splendor of the Ram Temple. It is anticipated that the temple will be finished and available to use by December 2025. The temple’s construction is expected to cost about 15 billion rupees.

In an opinion piece, the Qatar-based television network Al Jazeera claimed that “India’s secularism is buried beneath the weight of saffron politics.

In her piece, Indian political analyst Insiya Wahanvati stated that it is improper for any Prime Minister to inaugurate a temple in secular India.

The story claims that Muslims are still in anguish over the Babri Mosque’s destruction. There are still many persons who are remembered who died in the riots that ensued after the destruction. Rebuilding the mosque was promised politically, but it has never taken place.

The prime minister of the secular democratic republic of India, Narendra Modi, is taking center stage during the temple’s inauguration, according to a report published in the country’s major daily, The Kathmandu Post. This is in addition to Lord Rama.

According to the publication, India has seriously strayed from its secularist ideals, and in Ayodhya, India’s secularism has been overtaken.
