Mohan Bhagwat, the chief of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Sunday said the time for patience was over and a law should be brought to facilitate the construction of a Ram temple at Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh if the matter was not a priority for the apex court.
Speaking at a rally organised by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on the Ram temple issue here, Bhagwat also said this should be the “decisive phase of the agitation”.
“One year ago, I myself had said be patient. Now, I say patience will not work. Now we need to mobilise people. Now we should demand a law,” he said.
“In 2010, the court (Allahabad High Court) had ruled in favour of the construction of the Ram temple, but now, indications are clear that it is not a priority of the (apex) court,” he added
“(Then) the karsevaks (volunteers) got angry and what happened, happened,” he said, referring to the demolition of the Babri mosque on December 6, 1992. (Reported by ndtv.)
