Enact law to build temple: VHP
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) here on Sunday reiterated its demand that the Centre enact a law for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya, saying that matters of faith did not come under the purview of the courts.
VHP international president Vishnu Sadashiv Kokje also said a solution to the Ayodhya dispute through court procedures was not in sight at the moment, given the prevailing scenario.
“Matters related to religious faith do not come under the jurisdiction of courts which are run by laws. That is why we want that the Central government should get a law enacted for the construction of a grand Ram temple soon,” Mr. Kokje said.
“We have a hunch that in the coming days, the Ayodhya dispute will linger on in the Supreme Court as in the past,” Mr. Kokje, a former judge of the High Courts of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, added.
