In a historic move, the Supreme Court today pronounced judgement in the title case of Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case, allotting the historical site to Ram Lalla Virajman and said a Ram Mandir should be constructed there. The Supreme court said that the Central Government would form a trust which will construct the Ram Mandir and a 5 acre land will be given to the Waqf Board for construction of a Masjid. When the judgement was pronounced, many could not believe that the dream of Ram Mandir was finally coming true in their lifetime. Many had given up hopes of seeing a resolution, considering the matter has been dragging on since more than 4 centuries now.
While the believers have always had faith and hope that a grand Ram Mandir will be constructed at Ayodhya, if not now, then in future, the ‘liberals’ and ‘seculars’ have always mocked the Ram Mandir while taking a jibe at Hindus.
“मंदिर बनेगा” ये जुमला सरकारी है,
राम ठगे जा चुके अब तुम्हारी बारी है..

Senior Congress leader who was instrumental in raising the ‘Hindu terror’ bogey, referred to the promise of constructing Ram temple as ‘jumla’.
संघ परिवार को राम मंदिर से मतलब नहीं है केवल लोगों को मूर्ख बना कर हिन्दू मुसलमान को बॉंट कर राजनीति करनी है।

And also said that it is a way to create a communal divide between two communities.
Peaceniks were also busy rooting for a hospital at the Ram Janmabhoomi.
Tip to netas:instead of mandir/masjid at Ayodhya,announce you’ll build a charitable hospital.Caring 4 sick true spirit of Hindus and Muslims

To such people, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy in 2017 had suggested a mental hospital across the Sarayu through which they could see the grand temple.
And of course, Michelangelo, the patron saint of hypocrisy, wasn’t too satisfied with the verdict either.
Nuanced judgement by the SC.. but for true secular values and genuine closure, this is not enough: those responsible for the criminal act (as mentioned by court) of 1949/1992 will have to be punished. That will lead to final closure and genuine inter faith harmony.. jai hind!

‘Ram Mandir’ and the delay because of legal tentacles, has also been used multiple times by the ‘liberals’ and ‘seculars’ to mock the faith of Hindus.
Who has stopped Kashmiri Pandits to go back to the valley? For the last 55 months, Modi is ruling the country & his governor ruling the Kashmir – Are Pandits waiting for the Ram Mandir to be built? https://t.co/a5fi67nZ5I

Aam Aadmi Party troll Dhruv Rathee has also time and again made ‘Ram Mandir’ jokes because it has been promised by the BJP in its manifesto. The BJP has relentlessly pursued legal options to get the temple built.
One promise has remained common in all the BJP Manifestos since the past 23 years –
1996: Ram Mandir
1998: Ram Mandir
2004: Ram Mandir
2009: Ram Mandir
2014: Ram Mandir
2017: Ram Mandir
2019: Ram Mandir
— Dhruv Rathee (@dhruv_rathee) April 8, 2019
Another such jibe has been how ‘Mandir wahin banayenge, par tareekh nahin batayenge’ in a bid to say how the promise has always been unfulfilled.
J Scindia in Jaipur, Rajasthan: Politics shouldn’t enter religion & religion should not enter politics.

Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia on Friday mocked BJP over Ram Temple issue during his visit to Vadodara. He said that they keep saying ‘Mandir wahin banayenge, par tareekh nahi batayenge’

Promises, promises and only promises . .
It’s patent BJP strategy –

Ayodhya mai Corporator, MLA, MP sab BJP ke hai. Rajya mai BJP ki sarkar hai. Kendra mai sarkar BJP ki hai. To Ram Mandir kyun nahi bana? If this is the election issue, then BJP deserves to be voted out.
— Shehla Rashid شہلا رشید (@Shehla_Rashid) November 4, 2018
Shehla had also mocked Ram Mandir when someone had questioned her how will she protest if Article 370 is abrogated.
Ram Mandir bill bhi le ao.
— Shehla Rashid شہلا رشید (@Shehla_Rashid) August 9, 2018
Shehla had joked as if to say abrogation of Article 370 is as ‘unbelievable’ as construction of Ram Mandir. On 5th August 2019, Government of India abrogated Article 370 and made Jammu & Kashmir integral part of India. On 9th November, 2019, Supreme Court ruled in favour of Ram Mandir.
Disgraced ex-IPS officer also would regularly mock the Ram Mandir.
Mandir Wahin Banayenge, Par Tareekh Nahin Batayenge.

Amit Shah says that Ram Mandir will be built in a legal manner.

Another UP Election round the corner. Any updates on the Ram Mandir?
— Sanjiv Bhatt (IPS) (@sanjivbhatt) January 20, 2017
‘Journalist’ Rana Ayyub, who passes off fiction as investigative journalism, thinks Ram Mandir is a ‘majoritarian privilege’.
Right wing handles asking Muslims to maintain peace and harmony and accept the Babri verdict while celebrating the construction of Ram Mandir. This must be the famed majoritarian privilege.
— Rana Ayyub (@RanaAyyub) November 8, 2019
She has also mocked Ram Mandir in the past.
Is mandir wahin banayega in d manifesto ?

Good to see M.J.Akbar defend the Ram mandir inclusion in the BJP manifesto..

Now that the BJP has secured an absolute majority, what is its plan of action on article 370, uniform civil code and Ram mandir ?
— Rana Ayyub (@RanaAyyub) May 16, 2014
Earlier today, Rana had mentioned how she was in Washington DC and was glued to the television set ahead of verdict. As this Twitter user pointed out, whenever Rana is away from India, good things seem to be happening.
