“6th December is celebrated as ‘Vijay Parv’. The Babri structure was a stain on the Ram Mandir. We respect their religion and their devotion but the structure was made on the Ram Mandir. Why the structure of Babar should remain when he is no more? So, it was decided to demolish the structure. With the blessings of god, the construction of Mandir will begin. Temple should be constructed there,” said Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, the president of Ram Janam Bhoomi Nyas.

Meanwhile, Mohd. Hashim Ansari of Muddai Babri Masjid accused the Hindu Mahasabha of indulging in politics on this issue.

“We have this case in the court. There should be no drama outside the court. If any government give us our Masjid than we will support them. This is the politics of the government, we will fight the case of Babri Masjid peacefully in the court,” he said.
