Gujarat: Sweets distributed outside VHP headquarters after SC clears deck for Ram Mandir on Ram Janmabhoomi

A celebratory mood has set in, after the five-judge bench unanimously came to this decision, after weighing the arguments presented by all sides for 40 days.

The Supreme Court on Saturday, in a historic decision, accepted the Hindu claim and handed over the Ram Janmbhoomi site to Hindus to build Ram Mandir and finally end the century-long dispute. A celebratory mood has set in after the five-judge bench unanimously came to this decision after weighing the arguments presented by all sides for 40 days. Volunteers at the VHP headquarters in Gujarat, have been distributing sweets to passerby’s after the Supreme Court verdict on Ayodhya came in earlier in the day.

In order to maintain law and order, directives were issued to the volunteers of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) to refrain from taking out processions or raising slogans if the upcoming judgment in the Babri Mosque-Ram Temple title suitcase comes in their favour. Issuing guidelines, the two prominent Hindu groups had told workers that they could light lamps in their houses, distribute sweets and visit temples to celebrate.

Ahead of the judgement, the VHP had appealed to its cadres to remain calm and refrain from provocative remarks. In a letter to its workers, VHP central vice-president Champat Rai had said, “The verdict should not be a matter of Hindus and Muslims. It is about accepting the truth. So, do not create a celebratory frenzy in society and nobody should be taunted.”

Since 1990, for the first time in three decades, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) had stopped stone carving work for the construction of a Ram Mandir in anticipation of the Supreme Court verdict in the Ayodhya case. The stone carving work near the Ram Janmabhoomi site has been continuing non-stop since 1990.

The carving of stones for the construction of a Ram Temple was started by the VHP at the Ram Mandir Nirmaan Karyashala at Ayodhya in 1990 when Mulayam Singh Yadav of the Samajwadi Party was Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. The carving work by artisans had been carried out uninterrupted since then.

The carving had reportedly continued even when VHP and RSS were banned for 6 months after Babri demolition in 1992.

The Nyas workshop at Karsevakpuram in Ayodhya has reportedly been attracting a large number of visitors as the verdict day comes nearer.

According to the VHP, nearly 1.25 lakh cubic feet of stone has already been carved. As per the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas, the entire temple will be made of red stone and will have no ironwork.

Meanwhile, the 5-judge bench said that the Central Govt should within 3 months formulate a scheme envisaging setting up of Trust to build the Ram Mandir. Possession of inner and outer courtyards to be handed over to the Trust. Delivering the much-anticipated verdict, CJI Ranjan Gogoi said that this court must accept faith and belief of worshippers. The Apex court also ordered the union government to provide 5 acres of land at an alternate site at a prominent location in Ayodhya to the Sunni Waqf Board to rebuild the Babri Masjid which was demolished in 1992.

It may be noted that while the Ram Mandir will be built by a trust constituted by the central government, the Sunni Waqf Board will build the mosque on the plot given to them by the government.
