Bharatiya Janata party(BJP) general secretary Ram Madhav on Saturday said the delay in construction of the Ram Mandir was causing anxiety among the Hindu community, a day after the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh warned that Hindus would not shy away from launching a 1992-like mass agitation for a Ram temple at Ayodhya.
“Very unfortunate that dilly-dallying about Ram Mandir on the part of the judiciary before 1992, is being repeated. The Supreme Court had itself spoken about holding hearings on the issue from October 29 in front of a fresh bench. Now the Supreme Court is saying the bench will be hear it three months later, in January. The Hindu community and all the organisations supporting Ram Mandir are anxious and RSS has only articulated that,” Madhav was quoted as saying by ANI when asked about the statement made by its ideological fountainhead.
Bhaiyyaji Joshi, after the conclusion of a three-day national executive body meeting of the RSS in Maharashtra’s Thane, had said yesterday, “Will not hesitate to launch an agitation for Ram temple, if needed, but since the matter is in the Supreme Court, there are restrictions.”
The Supreme Court said the Ayodhya temple-mosque dispute will be taken up in the first week of January
