Pnar tribals of Meghalaya, who adhere to the ancient ‘Niamtre’ indigenous faith, have collected water and soil for building the grand Ram Temple at Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh, a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader said on Monday.

Dolloi (traditional village chief) of Elaka Jowai, Puramon Kynjing and the Dolloi of Elaka Nartiang, Hep Dhar collected the water and soil from Myntdu River in Jowai and Myntang River in Nartiang village respectively with full traditional religious rituals for construction of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, RSS pracharak of Jaintia Hills, Gaurov Tiwari said.

He said the two scared elements were sent to Ayodhya on Monday.

“We, the Pnar people, want to be part of the construction of the Ram Mandir since we believe in Ram as our household God,” Kynjing said, adding that the two important elements were taken with due permission from the traditional head and with prayers according to the traditional religion.

Echoing Kynjing, the RSS pracharak said that the Pnar people believe in Ram and accord names to male twins as Ram and Lakhan. He said that water and soil from all sections of the integrated India, which include India, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Tibet, will be collected for building the grand and divine Ram temple.
