Ramlala Darshan Scheme: High Court rejects the petition seeking ban on the scheme

Virendra Gahwai, Bilaspur. The High Court has rejected the public interest litigation challenging the philosophy of Ram Lalla. The petitioner had demanded a ban, calling it against the principle of secularism. During the hearing of the case, Additional AG Yashwant Singh Thakur, presenting the argument on behalf of the government, said that Ramlala darshan is for all sections of the state. This is not against secularism. People of all religions go to see Ramlala. The High Court accepted the argument presented by the government and rejected the petition.

Actually, the state government has started a scheme for the people of Chhattisgarh to have darshan of Ram Lalla. In which people are brought back after taking them to Ayodhyadham and having darshan of Ramlala. Petitioner Lakhan Subodh, a resident of Devrikhurd in Bilaspur district, had filed a PIL to close the scheme, saying it was against the provisions of the Constitution. On behalf of the petitioner, the court was told that India is a secular nation. Ramlala Darshan Scheme is contrary to the things and conditions contained in the Constitution. Arguing on secularism, he had requested to order the state government to close the scheme.

During the hearing of the case, it was said by the state government that the Ramlala Darshan scheme has not been done on the basis of any religion or caste. This scheme does not differentiate on the basis of religion or caste. This is for the people of the state to visit. This scheme is beneficial for those poor people living in the state who are financially weak and who are not able to go on religious pilgrimage. They will reach Ayodhya for free and will return after having darshan of Ramlala.
