New Delhi. Today’s judgment in the criminal case relating to disputed structure in Ayodhya is a vindication of truth and justice. Sadly, it has taken 28 years for the Courts to deliver justice. This judgment, now hopefully draws the final curtains on an issue that had been agitating the Hindu psyche for some 472 years.
The Ram Bhakts have suffered their implication in false cases and the trial that stretched for 28 long years. The case was based on 49 FIRs, 351 witnesses produced by the Prosecution and some 600 documents. The tenure of the Presiding Judge had to be extended several times, beyond his retirement.
Initially the Prosecution was launched against 49 persons. We remember with gratitude, the 17 of them who unfortunately left for their heavenly abode during the trial. They include Ashok Singhal, Mahant Avaidyanath, Pujya Paramhans Ramchandra Das, Rajmata Vijaya Raje Scindia, Acharya Giriraj Kishore, Shri Bal Thackrey, Vishnu Hari Dalmia and Vaikunth Lal Sharma (Prem Ji).
The Judgment of 9th November 2019 by Hon’ble Supreme Court of India unanimously settled that the subject land in Ayodhya does in fact belong to Ram Lalla. Today’s judgment has busted the conspiracy theory. It is time to eschew politics, shed prejudices and instead to keep looking into the past now to look forward to work unitedly for the unity and progress of Bharat.
We call upon the Society to now look forward to the urgent tasks at hand, the completion of a Grand Temple at Shri Ramjanmabhoomi, the eradication of social inequalities and establishment of Samrasta, to bring about social, educational and economic upliftment of the Scheduled Castes, Tribes and other economically backward sections of the Society as also to build a strong and stable Bharat; capable of fighting the attacks and challenges from within and at the borders. Equally, the VHP shall continue its campaign for protection of temples and their properties and to ensure that their income is used only for religious and social purposes.
