Union home minister Amit Shah has promised that a grand temple for Lord Ram would come up at the disputedsite in Ayodhya in a matter of just four months
Bengaluru: Amid raging protests over the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) which is now a law, Union home minister Amit Shah has promised yet another milestone. In a rally in the poll-bound Jharkhand, he said in the next four months, a “sky-touching” Ram temple would be built in Ayodhya.
To quote him, he said, "Not long ago, the Supreme Court ruling for Ayodhya came. For 100 years there was a demand of Indians from all over the world that a grand Ram temple should be built at Ram Janmabhoomi. Congress' politician Kapil Sibal said in Supreme Court 'do not hear the case now, listen later.' I want to tell you that the Supreme Court's decision has come, within 4 months the grand Ram temple touching the sky is going to be built in Ayodhya,” as reported by Republic TV.
Earlier on Friday, UP CM Yogi Aditynath - while extolling the resolution of the 500-year long dispute - requested each family in Jharkhand to donate Rs 11 and one brick to construct the temple.
The Supreme Court’s verdict in favour of Hindus has come as a massive fillip to those who advocate the building of the Ram temple at the birthplace of Lord Ram.
The top court, in its verdict had awarded the 2.77 acres of land to the Hindus, while at the same time, awarding another 5 acres of land to the Muslims in the same place of Ayodhya.
The top court had also asked the centre to set up a committee within 3 months to look into the construction of the Ram temple.
Congress, on the other hand, had worked meticulously to keep pushing the matter further with an agenda to appease the Muslims.
The SC verdict must have come as a bolt from the blue. However, the Congress did issue a statement welcoming the verdict and hoping for a grand structure for Lord Ram.
