Will launch a movement like 1992 if needed: RSS on Ram Mandir Issue

Ahead of elections next year, RSS has established its stand on Ram Mandir issue and has asked the Supreme Court to cater the feelings of Hindu community before carrying out the verdict


After the three-day conclave organised by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in Bhayandar ended, RSS senior member Bhaiyaji Joshi on Friday said that the long-wait of people should come to end with the construction of Ram Mandir (Temple). “If needed, we will start a movement - similar to the one in 1992 – again,” said Joshi. 

Speaking at a press conference in Bhayandar, Joshi stressed on the need for the government to bring an ordinance to construct Ram temple due to the delay in SC’s order while saying that the court should cater to the feelings of the Hindu community before deciding on Ram Mandir Issue. Joshi also said that the government has the power to issue an ordinance for the construction of the temple in Ayodhya.

The RSS senior also added that the court should review its order and shall soon start the hearing on the matter. Earlier, Supreme Court adjourned the hearing on the Ram Mandir Issue until January next year saying that it is not court’s primary focus. Reacting to this, Joshi said that the Hindu community is feeling disrespected. 

Lord Ram lives in everyone’s heart and his existence shall be given a place in form of a temple. There are certainly some hurdles but we hope that Supreme Court will announce its verdict keeping in mind the sentiments of Hindus,” Joshi said. 

These remarks from RSS come after Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah met RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Friday. However, Joshi refused to comment on the content of the meeting saying that it is a personal matter.
