After Article 370 and Article 35A were stripped and the declaration of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh Union Territories it seems like the nation is poised to solve yet another long-standing conflict that has distressed the country. The hearing in the Ram Mandir case is poised to be taken up by the Constitutional Bench from 6th August 2019 on a day to day basis.

The Ram Mandir issue is one of great importance to the Hindu population of the country. And India Today survey had shown that 69% of Indians want Ram Mandir constructed on Ram Janmabhoomi.
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’.
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.
With the Kashmir Reorganisation Bill 2019 righting a historic wrong, it would seem like the day-to-day hearings of the Ram Mandir case could settle another long-pending conflict in the foreseeable future.
