Just ahead of forthcoming UP Assembly elections 2017, the Samajwadi Party Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav feels ‘sad’ about giving firing orders on ‘Karsevaks’ in year 1992, while they demolished Babri Masjid.
When Mulayam Singh Yadav was unveiling a book written on his life by a journalist, he said he feels sad about firing orders on kar sevaks given by him while they were demolishing Babri Masjid at Ayodhya. It was necessary to save the religious building (Of Muslims).
Singh said if more people would have been killed in firing he wouldn’t have withdrawn his orders for firing on Karsevaks. This action was required to be taken as Muslim would have started doubting on working of the governments for their safety. It was to maintain peace in the society.
The political pundits have assessed this statement to regain the faith of Muslim voters who are slipping way with Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP). It could also bring moderate hindus towards the party as he has regretted the firing orders.
