Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan made a significant visit to the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, marking a momentous occasion as he bowed before the idol of Ram Lalla. In a video shared on the Kerala Governor’s official handle, Khan’s reverence before the deity amidst resonating chants of ‘Jai Shree Ram’ echoed through the air.

Addressing reporters following his visit, Governor Khan expressed his deep sense of pride in being able to worship Lord Ram in Ayodhya. “I have visited Ayodhya multiple times, and the sentiment remains as profound today as it was during my earlier visits. It’s not just a moment of joy but also a matter of immense pride for me to come to Ayodhya and offer my respects to Shriram,” quoted PTI, capturing Khan’s sentiments.

The Ram temple, symbolizing a historic moment, was opened to the public after Prime Minister Narendra Modi led the ‘pran pratishtha’ ceremony of the idol on January 22. The grand event witnessed a gathering of over 10,000 attendees, including esteemed sportspersons and celebrities.

Reflecting on a previous statement made in January last year, Governor Arif Mohammed Khan recalled the words of Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, a renowned reformer and founder of the Aligarh Muslim University. Khan emphasized the inclusive nature of the term ‘Hindu,’ citing Sir Syed’s perspective: “Anyone born in India, consuming its produce and drinking from its rivers, can rightfully identify as Hindu. Therefore, you must address me as Hindu,” he stated during an event organized by the Kerala Hindus of North America (KHNA) in Thiruvananthapuram.
