En­act law to build tem­ple: VHP

The Hindu - - NEWS - Press Trust of In­dia

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.
