Naik should be sacked for Ram temple remarks, says Sachar

Former Delhi High Court Chief Justice Rajindar Sachar on Saturday slammed governor of the northern Indian state Uttar Pradesh, Ram Naik, for his comment that a Ram Temple should be built in
Ayodhya and said it was a “fit case” for removal from the post.

Calling Naik's comments as “gratuitous insult” to right thinking people, Sachar said he was shocked at the “constitutional impropriety” of the Governor.

“His describing it as a desire by every one is a crude partisan political statement. Surely he knows that this disruptive action of RSS has already done immense damage to the secular face of India,” he said. Sachar, who had brought out a report on condition of Muslims in India in 2006, said, “It is a gratuitous insult not only to the biggest minority but to overwhelming population in in the country who are against creating a religious divide.”

Naik on Thursday had said a Ram temple should be built at the site of Babri Masjid as per the “wishes of Indian citizens”.  

“I have no doubt that at the minimum it is a fit case where the least that central government is expected to do is to transfer him to another state though frankly it is a fit case for removal of the governor,” he said.
