Dalit leaders who spearheaded the current protests in Delhi in opposition to the demolition of a temple within the metropolis devoted to the 16th century mystic poet-saint Ravidas, will launch a 3-month lengthy protest in the capital on Thursday in an effort to culminate on November 26 - the cut-off date posited by using the community leaders for rebuilding the temple.

The demolition of the Ravidas temple in a wooded area vicinity in south Delhi's Tughlakabad on August 10, based totally on the Supreme Court's orders, has triggered a political upheaval, with all primary political parties - the BJP, AAP and the Congress – disturbing the reconstruction of the temple that's an emotive difficulty for the followers of the Ravidasa religion.

"We are going to announce the start of what we feel goes to be an extended and persistent struggle for the rebuilding of Sant Ravidas temple. We demand that the temple be rebuilt in exactly the equal spot in which it stood for the last 500 years," stated Ashok Bharti, a Dalit activist.

There are a few greater needs that the organisers of protests are going to elevate in days to return. "We want ninety six youths arrested throughout the August 21 protests to be released at once and the authorities to sponsor their bails if essential. If the government thinks that by means of arresting loads of people, it will depart our motion directionless, we're going to show them incorrect," Bharti introduced.

For him, the postpone in reconstruction of the temple is ‘inexplicable’. "The principal authorities has stated that it's miles committed to rebuilding the temple. The Delhi authorities has also surpassed a decision in support of rebuilding the temple. Then why is there any such delay in doling out land lower back to us and beginning construction afresh?"

"We will approach all of the events and are searching for their assist. If there may be a consensus on constructing of the temple, then nothing can prevent the construction," Bharti delivered.

On August 21, heaps of Dalits, who trooped into Delhi from states consisting of Punjab, Rajasthan, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, marched from Ambedkar Bhawan in relevant Delhi to Ramlila Maidan on Tuesday. They argued that if the Ram temple couldn't be relocated from Ayodhya, why the fans of Ravidas ought to permit their 500-year-antique temple to be shifted elsewhere.
