He emphasized the necessity of an ideal figure like Maryada Purushottam Ram, who serves as a guide to limit and channelize these ambitions. According to Khan, such a figure is essential to prevent unchecked and unrestrained ambitions.

He expressed that earlier books on Ram Janmabhoomi seemed to harbor animosity between communities, creating an illusion of conspiracy against Muslims. Kumar emphasized the importance of this new book, clarifying that it dispels such notions and questions whether the Ram Janmabhoomi movement was solely against Muslims. The book aims to provide a more accurate and inclusive perspective on the historical context.
