SC verdict is justice to the sentiments, faith and belief of people: RSS Chief
“RSS welcomes this decision. The Supreme Court has given justice to the people’s sentiments, faith and belief,” Mohan Bhagwat said.
New Delhi: Hailing the Supreme Court verdict on Ayodhya as the one that gives justice to the sentiments and faith of the people of the country, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said that the case that went on for decades reached its right conclusion today.
“RSS welcomes this decision. The Supreme Court has given justice to the people’s sentiments, faith and belief,” Bhagwat said.
“This case was going on for decades and it has reached the right conclusion. This should not be seen as a win or loss. We also welcome everyone’s efforts to maintain peace and harmony in society,” he added.
The Supreme Court on Saturday directed the Centre to give five acres of suitable land to Sunni Waqf Board and at the same time make necessary arrangements for the construction of the temple by forming a trust.
“Central government shall form in three to four months a scheme for setting up of a trust. They shall make necessary arrangements for the management of trust and construction of the temple,” Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said while reading out the verdict.
A five-judge constitution bench presided by Chief Justice Gogoi and comprising Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer passed the order on a bunch of petitions against an order of the Allahabad High Court which trifurcated the site between the parties — Ramlalla Virajman, Sunni Central Waqf Board and Nirmohi Akhara.
A decade-long legal dispute was fought by right-wing party Hindu Mahasabha, a sect of Hindu monks Nirmohi Akhara and Muslim Waqf Board over 2.77 acres of land in Ayodhya. (ANI)
