Verdict upholds right to build grand Ram temple: Advani

New Delhi, September 30: Welcoming the Ayodhya title suit judgement as one that paves the way for construction of a grand Ram temple at the disputed site, the BJP today said it opens a “new chapter for national integration” and “inter-community relations”.

“So far as the judgement upholds the right of the Hindus to construct a temple at the Garbh-Grih (sanctum sanctorum), it is a significant step forward towards the construction of a grand temple at the birth place of Lord Ram,” senior BJP leader L K Advani said after a meeting of the BJP Core Group.

He maintained that the Archaeological Survey of India and other expert agencies proved that the structure was a massive Hindu religious structure.

“The expert opinion of ASI and other expert agencies engaged by it had clearly opined that there were remains of a Hindu religious structure where the disputed structure stood,” Advani said.
