In a shocking statement, a BJP MLA from Telangana, Raja Singh, has threatened to behead those opposing the building of a Ram Temple at the site where the Babri Masjid once stood in Ayodhya.

“We can give our lives to build a Ram Mandir and we can also take lives,” the news agency ANI has tweeted Singh as threatening. “To those who warn of dire consequences if Ram Mandir [is] built…we were waiting for you to say this so we can behead you”.  
This is not the first time the BJP MLA has indulged in inflammatory speech. In December 2015, recalling the lynching on Mohammed Akhlaq in Dadri (Uttar Pradesh), Singh had said, "We warn them against a Dadri-like incident in Telangana. We can both give our lives and take life for the sake of protecting the cow."

Even while the Supreme Court has recently refused early hearing on the clutch of petitions pertaining to the disputed site in Ayodhya, the chorus for building the Ram Temple has been growing. Union Minister Uma Bharti has declared she is ready to go to jail for the sake of the Ram Temple. UP chief minister, Yogi Adityanath has called for talks among the disputing parties to resolve the dispute.
