BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Sunday claimed that work on the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya could start before the end of this year.
He expressed confidence that the final verdict by the Supreme Court will pave the way for the construction of a temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya.
Mr Swamy was speaking on the second and concluding day of a seminar titled, “Shri Ram Janma Bhoomi Temple: Emerging Scenario” organised amid tight security at Delhi University’s Arts Faculty by Arundhati Vashishtha Anusandhan Peeth, a research organisation founded by late VHP leader Ashok Singhal.
“After there is victory in court on the Ram Temple case, then in Krishna mandir in Mathura and Kashi Vishwanath, we will win easily because the evidence is clearcut. This is the more difficult case,” Mr Swamy said. He said in Ayodhya, another mosque can be built near the Sarayu river but added that it should not be named after Babur. Separately, in a tweet, he said, “We Hindus offer Lord Krishna’s package to Muslims – give us 3 temples and keep 39,997 masjids. I hope Muslim leaders don’t become Duryodhans.”
