New Delhi: Months after Ram Vilas Vedanti claimed that the Ram Mandir will be built “even if there are no court orders“, the religious leader and former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP on Sunday said that the party is resolved to build the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. He again claimed that the construction of the Ram Mandir will begin before the Lok Sabha Elections 2019. He had also said that the grand temple will be built in Ayodhya “all of a sudden”.

Vedanti had in June claimed that the construction of a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya will begin at any cost before the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections. “The construction will take time but one thing is sure that it will start before the 2019 elections. If the court orders come before the elections it is very good, but if it does not happen even then a grand Ram temple will be constructed in Ayodhya,” Vedanti had said.
Justifying his “no court orders needed” remark, Ram Vilas Vedanti had said that Mughal emperor Babur didn’t come with any orders to destroy the temple and the Babri Masjid wasn’t destroyed with any court orders.
“Ram mandir jo hai hamare desh ke pratyek Hindu ka vishay hai. (Ram Mandir is the topic of every Hindu in our country). When Babur had come in 1528, he had not come with any court orders to demolish it…when Ram Lalla appeared in 1949, he did not appear as per any court orders,” he said.
Echoing the same sentiments, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that the Ram mandir will definitely be built in Ayodhya when Lord Ram showers his blessings and there should be no doubt about it. “At least there shouldn’t be any doubt among saints,” he had said.
