BY A STAFF REPORTER: Ahead of the Ram Temple consecration ceremony, a few Hindu activists affixed stickers reading 'Ayodhya Marg' on a signage reading 'Babar Road' on Saturday in Delhi.
However, authorities removed the stickers shortly after the incident. Furthermore, the sticker was saffron in color and read 'Ayodhya Marg' in Devnagri as well. Moreover, the Babar Road is in Delhi's Bengali Market Area. Some groups including the Hindu Sena have demanded to rename the road.
The incident comes just two days before the Pran-Pratishtha ceremony. The parisar pravesh ceremony (placement of Lord Ram on the sanctum sanctorum) concluded on Thursday, 18th January. Moreover, the Ram Temple consecration rituals began on January 16 Tuesday, and will continue for seven days. The final ritual will be performed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 22nd January. Over 7,000 dignitaries will attend the grand Pran-Pratishtha ceremony on 22nd January in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh.
