Ayodhya: A group of 2000 men claiming to be descendants of Lord Ram reached Ayodhya today. They expressed hope that the Supreme Court would rule in favour of the temple soon.

This tour to Ayodhya was following Supreme Court judge's question.

On August 9, Supreme Court questioned 'Ram Lalla Virajman' that the court was curious to know if anyone from the 'Raghuvansha' (descendants of Lord Ram) was still residing in Ayodhya.

A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi put forth the question to senior advocate K Parasaran, appearing for 'Ram Lalla Virajman'.

Since then, various communities have claimed that they are the descendants of Lord Ram called Raghuvanshi. 

Now, even the members of Akhand Raghuvamshi Samaj Kalyan Mahaparishad along with its chief Harishankar Sinh Raghuvanshi considering themselves as the descendants of Lord Ram reached Ayodhya. 

Around 2000 members have got 13 crore books of Ram Naam and will deposit them in Ram Naam Bank at Valmiki Temple. 

They arrived from various places in Madhya Pradesh in more than 100 vehicles. The chief said that they were here to give an answer to the Supreme Court judge's question on Raghuvanshis'. They are sending a strong message that they are the true descendants of Lord Ram and a large number of them are spread across the country. 

Some days ago, the royal family of Jaipur and the former Mewar royal family too claimed that they are the descendants of Lord Rama.

"It is historically proven that my family is direct descendants of Shree Ram. We do not wish to stake any claim on Ram Janmabhoomi, but we believe that Shree Ram Temple must be built there,” Arvind Singh Mewar of the erstwhile royal family in Udaipur had tweeted.
