Voices in the opposition have questioned the likely presence of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi -- the leader of a secular state -- at the August 5 foundation stone laying ceremony for Ayodhya's Ram mandir. The example of Jawaharlal Nehru, who as PM had turned down an invitation to the inauguration of the Somnath temple, is being shared on social media as a contrast to the present situation.
