New Delhi: Sulking after Supreme Court made it clear that there would not be any urgent hearing in the Babri Masjid title case, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Wednesday reiterated its demand to enact a law for the construction of 'Ram temple' in Ayodhya.
"Ram temple is a matter of national pride and glory. The government should enact a law and construct the Ram temple in the same way Sardar Patel got Somanath temple rebuilt", Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Joint General Secretary Manmohan Vaidya said.
The Supreme Court of India on Monday while ruling out urgent hearing in the Babri Masjid title suit deferred it till January 2019.
The BJP, VHP and RSS leaders are issuing one statement after another ever since the SC decision - at times making statements insulting to the country's top court, even as the matter is sub-judice.
A day after the SC decision to defer the Ayodhya land dispute case, Uttar Pradesh CM and senior BJP leader virtually threatening the apex court said, "A solution through consensus is the best option, but there are other options too, and the best step should be considered."
Commenting on the SC decision Monday VHP leaders said the government should consider bringing a legislation in the Parliament in the forthcoming winter session to build the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
“The Supreme Court has once again adjourned the hearing. This fortifies the VHP’s stand that the solution to the Ram Janambhoomi issue is not in eternally waiting for hearing of appeals pending for over seven years. We reiterate our request to the Union government to enact a law to clear the way for building a grand temple of Lord Ram at his birthplace in Ayodhya,” VHP working president Alok Kumar told PTI.
Kumar’s comment hours after Union minister Giriraj Singh said “Hindus are running out of patience” and that he feared its likely consequences.
RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat had also earlier said that the government should enact a law for the construction of the Ram temple.
The RSS, BJP and VHP leaders want construction of Ram temple on the land in Ayodhya on which the Babri Masjid stood since 1528. The historic mosque, believed to be built by Mir Baqi, one of the commanders of Mughal Emperor Babur, was thrown into a controversy as a result of India's communal politics. It was at last demolished in broad daylight on December 06, 1992 by Hindu extremists in the presence of top RSS, BJP, VHP, Bajrang Dal and other right wing groups' top leadership.
