HYDERABAD: Hanuman Jayanti Shobha Yatra and Wiladat (birthday) procession of Hazarat Imam Ali concluded peacefully amid tight police security in Hyderabad on Tuesday.
People from Hindu and Muslim communities took out processions from different parts of the city. Hanuman Jayanti procession started at around 12 pm from Gowliguda Ramalayam and concluded at Tadbun temple by 6.45 pm. Meanwhile, Wiladat procession started at Darul Shifa at around 7 pm and ended at Moulali by 10 pm.
Around 15,000 police personnel were roped in for the peaceful conduct of the processions which were monitored from the command control centre at Hyderabad police headquarters.
Ram Mandir issue
International Bajrang Dal convener Manoj Varma on Tuesday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not taking initiative to build Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.
Speaking at a gathering at Koti, Varma said, “There is no place for a person in this country if they shy away from telling Bharat Mata Ki Jai. It is sad that some people are asking for proofs of Ram Mandir at Ayodhya.”
Swamy Jitendranath Maharaj of Maharashtra, who attended the Bajrang Dal-led Shobha Yatra as a chief guest, said every state in India will be under the rule of Hindus soon.
“The unity of Hindus in Hyderabad gives us hope that the day to build Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is not far away,” the chief guest said.
