Arrests of Ram Janmabhoomi Activists in Karnataka Spark Political Controversy

The Karnataka government’s recent arrests of individuals involved in the Ram Janmabhoomi movement in the 1990s have triggered a political controversy. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah defended the actions, stating that the government was not pursuing a politics of hatred but was addressing past wrongs.

The police department has initiated cases for investigation against Ram Mandir activists accused of property destruction and other offenses during the Ram Janmabhoomi movement.

The move has drawn criticism from Hindu organizations, alleging that the Congress government is attempting to curb BJP and Hindu organizations’ door-to-door campaigning ahead of the Ayodhya Ram Mandir inauguration. The arrests are expected to heighten political tensions in the state.
