On Tuesday, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has given December 31 as the deadline for construction of the Ram temple at Ayodhya. The saffron outfit's general secretary Champat Rai said, "Construction will start before December 31, and we won't wait for the Supreme Court verdict... We kept our patience, but won't wait beyond December," in a gathering of sants and youths from across the country at Ujjain mahakumbh.
The VHP general secretary had said that some organisations were spreading rumours to hog limelight on the Ayodhya issue. He said that 90% of the work for temple construction had been completed and the remaining would be done with the help of sants.
"The matter is sub judice in the SC and regular hearings are expected from June," Rai told the gathering. Champat Rai said, "Construction will start before December 31, and we won't wait for the Supreme Court verdict. We kept our patience, but won't wait beyond December."
A grand Ram Mandir at Ayodhya is a dream of Hindus. The birth place of Lord Ram was having a grand temple, which was destroyed by the Mughal invader Babar. Lots of war has been fought for the liberation of Ram Mandir and finally on 6 December 1992, the black mark in the history of Hindustan, the Babari Masjid at the place of Lord Ram’s birth place was pulled down by devotees.
