New Delhi: Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Wednesday said Hindus cannot wait “till eternity” for the court’s decision on Ram Temple and asserted that the only way forward is to enact a legislation for its construction. The VHP’s comment came a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi suggested that any decision on an ordinance on Ram temple can happen only after the completion of the judicial process but stressed the government was ready to make all efforts to fulfil its responsibility.
The VHP, considering the overall situation, continues to be of the firm view that the Hindu society cannot be expected to wait till eternity for a court decision, VHP international working president Alok Kumar told reporters. The only appropriate way forward is to enact a legislation clearing the way for the construction of a grand Ram Temple at the Ram Janmabhoomi now,” he added, reports PTI.
Modi’s comments on Tuesday had come amidst heightened demands by Hindutava organisations, including the RSS, for an ordinance for an early construction of the temple in Ayodhya. Meanwhile, BJP leader Uma Bharti, a key figure in the Ram temple agitation, on Wednesday asked the “devotees of Ram” to support Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s suggestion. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given a comprehensive interview, including on the issue of the Ram temple. All devotees of Ram should agree to this,” Bharti said in a tweet.
