Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that no one should look into the verdict of Ayodhya land dispute as “victory” or “defeat”. Whether it’s Ramashakti or Rahimshakti, this is the time to strengthen the spirit of Bharatbhakti, Modi said adding that everyone should maintain peace, harmony, and unity.
The Prime Minister said that the Supreme Court’s decision is historic on several fronts adding that it shows how important are to follow the legal process in resolving a dispute. Each side was given enough time and opportunity to present its arguments. He said that the temple of justice resolved the decades-old case amicably.
He further stated that this decision would further strengthen the confidence of the common man in judicial processes. He said, “We, 130 crore Indians have to maintain peace and restraint in accordance with the spirit of brotherhood of thousands of years of India. This decision would underline the peaceful co-existence of the India society.”
The Supreme Court today cleared the way for the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya and directed the Centre to allot a 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque.
In one of the most important and anticipated judgments in India’s history, a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi put an end to more than a century-old dispute. The apex court also said the mosque should be constructed at a “prominent site” and a trust should be formed within three months for the construction of the temple at the site many Hindus believe Lord Ram was born.
