Following the Supreme Court’s verdict granting the contentious land in Ayodhya to the Hindu parties for construction of a grand Ram Temple over it, the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha has written a letter addressed to PM Modi, HM Amit Shah and UP CM Yogi Adityanath stating their demands regarding Kar Sevaks. Mahasabha has demanded the withdrawal of Babri demolition cases against the Kar Sevaks.
Within 72 hrs of #AyodhaVerdict , Hindu Mahasabha writes to PM, HM and UP CM asking for:
1. Withdrawal of Babri demolition cases against Kar Sevaks
2. Martyr status for those killed
3. Plaque for the killed and stipend for living Kar Sevaks. pic.twitter.com/D5Wlir59eT

In addition to this, the Hindu Mahasabha has also demanded ‘Martyr Status’ for those Kar Sevaks who died in Ayodhya in 1992 due to government action or due to other reasons. Mahasabha has also pushed for providing financial assistance and a government job to the family of the deceased Kar Sevaks.
In its third demand, the Hindu Mahasabha has asked PM Modi, Amit Shah and Yogi Adityanath to grant “Religious Fighters” status to the Kar Sevaks and on the lines of Freedom Fighters, government benefits to them and monthly pension for financially weak Kar Sevaks.
On December 6, 1992, lakhs of Kar Sevaks swarmed around the disputed site of Ayodhya and in the ensuing commotion the dome of Babri Masjid was caved in. The UP government was then headed by Mulayam Singh Yadav, who was known with his “Mullah Mulayam” sobriquet for ordering police action against the Kar Sevaks.
The demand comes within three day of the apex court’s verdict in the protracted Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute in which the court has handed over the dispute landed to the centre for the construction of a Ram Temple and provided 5-acres of land elsewhere to the Muslim side.
The court verdict says that a trust for the construction of the temple be constituted, involving adequate representation of all the convened parties and asked the centre to commence on the construction of the temple within 3 months.
