Advani: Blessed, vindicated, was lucky to be part of movement

The BJP veteran called the Ram temple movement the greatest in independent India, saying God had been kind to him in giving him the opportunity to play a part in the phenomenon

Lal Krishna Advani, senior BJP leader who spearheaded the Ram Janmabhoomi movement, expressed happiness over the Supreme Court verdict in the Ayodhya case. Welcoming the historic verdict, he said, “I join the countrymen in welcoming the verdict given by the five-judge bench of the Supreme Court on the Ayodhya case.” He said he felt blessed.

Advani said, “The Supreme Court has given a unanimous verdict, paving the way for the construction of a grand temple for Lord Rama at the Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya.” Referring to his leadership in the Ram temple movement, he said that moment was a “moment of completion”. He said that it is a great thing for him that God had given him an opportunity to join this movement. Advani called the Ram temple movement the greatest movement in independent India.

The rath yatra that changed the political landscape of India: Seen in the picture karyakarta Narendra Modi (now the prime minister) in the customised vehicle that LK Advani took across the country to mobilise public opinion to claim Hindu ownership of the land where until 6 December 1992 stood the Babri Masjid

The veteran further said that now that the way for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya has been cleared, “it is time that we all leave behind all controversies and bitterness. Embrace harmony and peace”.

Following the marathon hearing of the case in the Supreme Court that lasted 40 days, the much-awaited verdict of the Supreme Court on the Ayodhya dispute arrived today. A five-judge bench of the Supreme Court gave a unanimous judgment on the politically sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute. Rejecting the claim of Nirmohi Akhara, the Supreme Court considered Ram Lalla Virajaman and Sunni Waqf Board as parties.

Then, the apex court ruled in favour of Ram Lalla Virajaman. The court also ordered that 5 acre of land be given to the Sunni Waqf Board somewhere else in Ayodhya. The court has ordered the central government to form a trust for the construction of the temple in three months. The trust has been asked to have a representative from the Nirmohi Akhara.
