The Prime Minister rightly said that when Aurangzeb came, Shivaji was in front of him, Salar Masood was challenged by Raja Suheldev. There was a sense of universal religion in the Prime Minister’s address today.
Kashi Vishwanath Temple Complex
Kashi Vishwanath Corridor has been the corridor of spiritual consciousness of the country, which has moved towards rectifying its tyrannical past. The spiritual heritage of centuries has been transformed and this is the first time in history that a thousand years of injustice has been redressed through creation alone, without any damage.
It is said that till the eleventh century, the shape of the Kashi Vishwanath temple was similar, as it has been built today. Kashi Vishwanath was not just a temple but a complex of temples. There were corridors around the temple complex, where Sanskrit, tantra and spirituality were taught. Students used to stay here and take education of religion and philosophy. In the seventeenth century, the Mughal ruler Aurangzeb ordered the destruction of this temple complex because his rebel brother Dara Shikoh studied Sanskrit here. Dara Shikoh rebelled against Aurangzeb and Islam. We will mention it even further, but first let us tell you the history of Kashi Vishwanath temple from the beginning.
The first mention of the breakdown of this temple is found in 1034 AD. In the 11th century, King Harishchandra got this temple renovated. In 1194, Muslim invader Shahabuddin Ghori broke it after looting it. The local people rebuilt the temple. In 1447, the Sultan of Jaunpur broke it again. After this, due to Akbar’s all-inclusive policy, Todarmal renovated the Kashi Vishwanath temple in 1585.
Meaning the process of demolition of Kashi Vishwanath temple continued. Seeing the grand temple of Baba Vishwanath in the 16th century, the Mughal ruler Shah Jahan got jealous. In 1632, Shah Jahan ordered to break it, sent the army, there was a struggle, but the Mughal army had to return in front of the mobilization of the people of Kashi. However, 63 temples of Kashi were destroyed in this struggle. After the failure of Shah Jahan, Aurangzeb ordered the destruction of the Kashi Vishwanath temple on April 18, 1669. The entire temple was demolished except for one wall and on the orders of Gazeb, the Gyanvapi Masjid was built here, that is, the mosque became bigger and the temple smaller. Then somehow the Pandits maintained the existence of the temple in the part of the complex and the struggle to rebuild the temple continued.
Ahilyabai got the temple built, but she could not return it to its old glory.
From 1752 to 1780, Maratha Sardar Datta ji Scindia and Malharrao Holkar made efforts to liberate the temple, but between 1777 and 80, Maharani Ahilya Bai Holkar of Indore got success in rebuilding the temple. Ahilyabai got the temple built, but she could not return its old splendor and glory. In 1836, Maharaja Ranjit Singh got its summit decorated with gold.
Now Prime Minister Narendra Modi has done the work of giving a grand modern look to the Kashi Vishwanath temple. The Gyanvapi well and the huge Nandi, which were removed from the Vishwanath temple complex during the time of Aurangzeb, have once again been included in the Vishwanath temple complex. The Kashi Vishwanath Corridor is all set to make the devotees feel its divinity and grandeur.
Farooq Abdullah attacked
The Prime Minister rightly said that when Aurangzeb came, Shivaji was in front of him, Salar Masood was challenged by Raja Suheldev. There was a sense of all religion in the Prime Minister’s address today, but some leaders made a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the name of Kashi Vishwanath Corridor. During the time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in Kashi, outside the Parliament in Delhi. Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Dr. Farooq Abdullah said that it is okay that the Prime Minister is inaugurating the corridor, but he should keep in mind that he belongs to one religion. No, but he is the prime minister of all religions.
On the allegations of Farooq Abdullah being the Prime Minister of only one religion, Narendra Modi replied from Kashi. From the Koshi Corridor, the Prime Minister clearly said that Kashi was not the karmabhoomi of any particular religion, but from here there has been a deep relationship between Buddhism and Jainism as well as Sikhism. The Prime Minister took the name of Lord Buddha along with Jain Tirthankars today. Guru Nanak Dev’s relation with Kashi was also explained. Narendra Modi told that he is not only a Hindu, but also the Prime Minister of other religions.
