Demands For Ordinance, Hindus can't wait till eternity for a court decision on Ram Mandir: VHP

Vishwa Hindu Parishad's (VHP) international working president Alok Kumar on Wednesday said that Hindus could not wait "till eternity" for a court decision on the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya. "Hindus cannot wait till eternity for a court decision," Kumar said while asserting the only way forward to construct Ram temple is by the enactment of legislation.

Kumar's statement comes a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's assertion that any decision on an ordinance for the construction of the temple can be considered only after the judicial process gets over.

In an interview to ANI, Modi on Tuesday also suggested that the judicial process was being slowed down because Congress lawyers were creating "obstacles" in the Supreme Court. "We have said in our manifesto that a solution would be found to this issue under the ambit of the Constitution," the PM said when asked if the issue had been relegated as merely an emotive issue for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Quizzed on whether the Centre could consider issuing an ordinance on this, he said that the matter is before the SC, and possibly in the final stages. "Let the judicial process be over. After that, whatever will be our responsibility as the government, we are ready to make all efforts," he added.

The matter is slated to be heard by the apex court on January 4. The petitions have been filed in the SC for day-to-day hearing in the case. ANI
