69% Indians want Ram Mandir at Ayodhya: India Today Survey

67% of the people surveyed also stated that the central government should bring an ordinance to build a Ram Temple at the disputed site.

A survey done by India Today over the issue of Ram Mandir at Ayodhya shows that around 69% people of India want construction of Ram Mandir at the disputed site at Ramjanmabhoomi in Ayodhya. The results of the survey are based on responses received from 13,000 people.

The survey shows that the Ram Mandir issue of Ayodhya is at the heart of the upcoming general elections. Besides the 69% figure, the survey also showcases that about 67% of the respondents want the PM Modi-led government to bring an ordinance over the issue and not wait for the decision of the Supreme Court. While 24% of the respondents answered in negative and the remaining 2%, did not put any view.

Various Hindu groups and parties have been pressurizing PM Modi to bring an ordinance to start construction of the mandir, as the Supreme Court has repeatedly delayed the verdict.

Prime Minister Modi in an interview to the news agency ANI, at the beginning of this year,  said that the decision on an ordinance on the Ram temple will only be considered after the judicial procedure is concluded. He added that the judicial procedure for the temple is being stalled in the Supreme Court since Congress lawyers are ‘slowing down the process’.

In the India Today survey, when respondents were asked question about the decision of Supreme Court, 58% people said that SC’s decision should be awaited over the issue, and there is no need of an ordinance, while 30% said otherwise, and 12% did not respond.

OpIndia, in December last year, had surveyed the Ayodhya region to ascertain about the people’s wish regarding the construction of mandor. We had found that the residents of Ayodhya overwhelmingly support the construction of the Ram Mandir. While they want other facilities such as hospitals and playgrounds to be built at Ayodhya, they are of the opinion all of it can proceed simultaneously with the temple construction.

“A Ram Mandir did exist there, the Babri Masjid was constructed after demolishing the Temple. And a Ram Mandir definitely should be built there.” One person had told Opindia, “Not 100%, the Ram Mandir should be constructed 110%.” The person had added.
