VHP wants Shah, Yogi in court-ordered trust for Ram Mandir

Supporting the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas in building the temple, VHP wants a direct involvement of the Union and State governments in the activity

Even as the Union government is starting to take steps towards executing the Supreme Court order to set up a trust for the construction of a Ram temple at the Ramjanmabhoomi site in Ayodhya, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has said that Home Minister Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath should be included in the trust.

VHP spokesperson Sharad Sharma expressed the hope that the trust would build the Ram temple according to the design prepared by the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas.

The VHP has been supporting a Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas-run workshop for artists and artisans at Karsevakapuram in Ayodhya since 1990. Artists have carved many stones and pillars for the proposed temple with the hope that whenever Ram Lalla’s temple is built, the murti will be installed in the edifice built by them.

Seventy-nine–year-old Annu Bhai Sompura, in charge of the workshop, said that according to the plan of Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas, the temple will be 268 feet long, 140 feet wide and 128 feet high to the summit. It will have a total of 212 pillars.

Sharma hoped that the trust would also have a representative in the new trust. He said, “We feel that Home Minister Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath should be included in this trust. The Ram Mandir Trust should be formed on the lines of the Somnath Trust.”

The VHP, a wing of the RSS, has been a proponent of Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas. Members of the VHP have been serving in the workshop.

On 9 November, the Supreme Court delivered its verdict on the decades-old Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute. The apex court ruled in favour of the Ram temple at the disputed site while directing the government to allot to the Muslim side 5 acre of land elsewhere in very Ayodhya for the mosque.

The Muslim side has not decided whether they would accept the land. The Sunni Waqf Board is consulting the All India Muslim Personal Law Board these days to take a final stand on the issue.
