AYODHYA: Cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli, industrialists Mukesh Ambani, Gautam Adani and Ratan Tata, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, and actors, Arun Govil and Dipika Chikhlia, who played Ram and Sita in popular TV serial ‘Ramayana’, are among the prominent personalities who have been invited for the consecration ceremony of Ram temple in Ayodhya on January 22.
The Ram Mandir Trust has sent invitations to over 7,000 people, including 3,000 VIPs. Families of karsevaks who lost their lives during the temple movement will also be invited. Other invitees include RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, yoga guru Ramdev, 4,000 seers, writers, journalists, scientists and prominent personalities from across the country.
General secretary of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Trust, Champat Rai, said: “We plan to invite one representative each from 50 foreign countries. Families of 50 karsevaks who lost their lives during the movement have also been invited. Invitations have also been sent to judges, scientists, writers and poets.”
“We have also invited saints, priests, Shankaracharyas, former civil servants, retired army officers, lawyers, musicians and Padma awardees,” he said.
“Ram Lalla will be seated in the temple in the form of a five-year-old boy. For this, three idols are being made from two stones brought from Karnataka, and one from Rajasthan. The idols are almost ready and are being given final touches. The most beautiful idol will be selected for consecration,” said Rai.
VHP spokesperson Sharad Sharma said, “We have also invited journalists who supported the Ram temple movement through their writings and reports. Without them, the struggle for Ram Temple could not have been successful.”The VVIPs will get entry through barcode passes. “Out of 7,000 invitees, about 4,000 would be religious leaders. The remaining will include prominent personalities from different fields. A link will be shared with the invitees before the ceremony. Once they register themselves, a bar code will be generated which will act as the entry pass,” Sharma said.
The invitation letter, duly signed by Champat Rai, reads: “You are aware that after a long drawn struggle, the construction of temple at Shri Ram Janmabhoomi is in progress, and on Paush Shukla Dwadashi, Vikram Samvat 2080, Monday, 22 January, 2024, the new idol of Ram Lalla will be consecrated in the sanctum sanctorum.”
“It is our strong desire that you be present in Ayodhya on this auspicious occasion to witness the consecration and enhance the dignity of this great historical day.”
