Members of the Shree Ramjanmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust would be meeting tomorrow (Feb 19) to finalise the date of construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.
Bengaluru: It would be a historic day for millions of Ram bhakts yearning to see a Ram temple at the birthplace of Lord Ram Ayodhya as the Shree Ramjanmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust members would be meeting tomorrow to finalise the muhurat (auspicious time) for the beginning of the Ram temple.
The trust will also hold deliberations on the way to deal with the funds for the temple. The trust hopes to keep this issue as transparent as possible.
Apart from these, the trust will also hold discussions on the timeline of construction.
As regards funds, the trust members will devise a mechanism for its collection so that accountability will not be compromised.
"The members are also likely to finalise the correct "muhurat" for laying of the foundation stone and a timeline for completion of the temple. Also on the agenda would be the suitable placement of idol of Ram Lalla as the construction work progresses," a source as quoted in a popular website said.
The trust has 15 members in it. It has not just religious persons, but civil members and even bureaucrats in it. The office of the trust is in Greater Kailash. The address coincidentally is that of K Parasaran, the advocate who represented Ram Lalla in the Supreme Court.
Back to the issue of the Ayodhya temple row, the top court last November awarded the disputed land of 2.77 acres to Hindus while asking the centre to form a trust to oversee all aspects related to temple construction. In line with this, PM Modi also announced the formation of a trust on the floor of the Parliament.
The top court has also asked the government to grant 5 acres of land to Muslims to build a mosque in the holy town of Ayodhya.
The construction of the temple will put an end to decades of argy-bargies over the issue and help devotees of Lord Ram realise their dreams.
