RSS Sarsanghachalak Dr. Mohan Bhagwat addressed the media today at Delhi after the Supreme Court pronounced the Ayodhya verdict. He was accompanied by Sarkaryavah Sri Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi.
The decision given by the Honourable Supreme Court is in line with the sentiments of the whole nation. Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh also joins the people of the whole nation in welcoming this verdict. The final judgement has come after legal processes spanning decades. In this process, all aspects relating to the Ram Janmabhoomi were thoroughly checked. Arguments placed by all parties reflecting their respective viewpoints were evaluated. We express our gratitude and congratulate the Honourable judges and lawyers of all sides who had carried on with this long churning patiently to bring out truth and justice. In this long-drawn effort, we remember all those supporters who had rendered their services in diverse ways and all martyrs with deep sense of gratitude.We welcome and congratulate the people for accepting the judgement, and people in different levels of administration and society for maintaining order keeping alive brotherhood. The people of Bharat are also worthy of praise for waiting for the verdict peacefully for long with utmost patience.The verdict should not be viewed from a ‘victory or defeat’ angle. The conclusion arrived through churning of truth and justice should be viewed and taken as a decision that will enhance the integrity and brotherhood of the entire Indian society. Forces which create discord among people and incite violence should not be patronised and kept away. One should express happiness with restraint, moderation and politeness completely avoiding any provocative or instigating action or deed and staying within the limits of the Constitution and law.Taking forward the decision of the Hourable Supreme Court verdict, we hope that the government will initiate steps soon to end the controversy.Let us forget all past controversies and work together to discharge our duty towards building a grand temple at Ram Janmabhumi.
