Congress's Stance and Non-Attendance:


The Congress, in a notable move, has chosen not to send any official representatives to the Pran Pratishta ceremony. This decision is interpreted as both a protest against perceived politicization and a manifestation of the steep internal divisions within the party on the matter.



Shankaracharyas' Perspectives: Diverse Opinions on Tradition and Politics:


The four Shankaracharyas, representing prominent Hindu monastic orders, under the pressure of the Congress Party and its allies including the Leftists and The Communists, exhibit mixed reactions. Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati and Swami Avimukteshwaranand Saraswati question the timing and specific rituals, hinting at political motivations. On the other hand, Swami Nischalanand Saraswati and Swami Sachchidanand Saraswati's absence suggests dissatisfaction with certain protocols for the ceremony.



Complexity and Nuances:


The multifaceted nature of the Ram Mandir issue is evident in the diverse opinions within Congress and among the Shankaracharyas. The interplay of politics and religious traditions adds complexity, raising questions about the event's true nature and its possible implications for the future of religious-political dynamics in India.

In 1985 the then Congress leader And Prime Minister Shri Rajiv Gandhi issued an order to open the Locks of the sanctum sanctorum (garbha-griha) of Shree Ram's birthplace in the unauthorized and illegal and disputed structure in Ayodhya under the high pressure of the agitations by the Hindu Community headed by Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bajrang Dal, Bharatiya Janata Party and other Organizations of The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) as the initiative of construction of Shree Ram Mandir Temple Construction has been initiated by them. In fact, at that time I along with several other Hindu Community Leaders had been the participant in the said Shree Ram Mandir Construction Agitations in those days. Therefore it is quite more than clear that the Hindu Community under the broad leadership of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bajrang Dal, Bharatiya Janata Party, and other Organizations of The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) also known as Sangh Parivar had jointly taken the initiative to build the Shree Ram Mandir at Ayodhya.



Conclusion: The Unfolding Political and Religious Landscape:


As the preparations for the Ram Temple 'Pran Pratishtha' intensify, the differing stances of the Congress and the varied opinions among the Shankaracharyas under the pressure of the Congress and its allies including the Leftists and Communists, underscore the intricate nature of the issue. Whether the event will be a truly religious ceremony or a politically charged spectacle remains to be seen, leaving a lasting impact on the intersection of politics and religion in India about the false claims being made by the Congress along with its allies.
