Acquire Babri Masjid land and pave way to construct Ram Mandir - VHPOctober 01, 2015 15:55
Dr. Subramanian Swamy of Virat Hindu Sangam andÂ Ashok Singhal of Vishwa Hindu Parishad has demanded to the government to acquire Babri Masjid land and pave way to construct Ram Mandir at earliest.
â€The government for a public interest purpose can issue a notice to the Babri Masjid Muthwali (hereditary supervisor) for acquisition of the land and building of Babri Masjid and offer (to Muslims) another site to build a mosque, perhaps across the Saryu river,â€ Dr. Subramanian Swamy of Vrat Hindu Sangam andÂ Ashok Singhal of Vishwa Hindu Parishad said in a statement.
â€œThere is no obstacle in the construction of the Ram temple. Government should take an initiative. The BJPâ€™s manifesto has also spoken about it,â€ Swamy said. To â€œspread awarenessâ€ among people, a seminar will be held in January, in which deliberations will take over for the rebuilding of the temple.
Dr. Swami, president of Virat Hindustan Sangam, shared a purported affidavit submitted by the then government before the apex court in 1994, in which it had stated that if the existence of a temple is established, its action will be in â€œsupport of the wishes of Hindu communityâ€. Swami and VHP general secretary Champat Rai claimed that excavation reports have stated that a temple existed there.
Ashok Singhal and Dr. Subramanian Swamy told in a press conference that they would wait for the Supreme Courtâ€™s decision on the sensitive issue before deciding on further course of action.
