Ram Mandir signifies Glory, Sacrifice and Victory

PM Modi deserves a big applause for creating a golden chapter in Ayodhya. Modi is the first prime minister to visit the Ram Janambhoomi and offer prayers at the sanctum sanctorum where the deity has been worshipped since 1949, escalating the row over the small plot of land on which a mosque had been built in the 16th century. Hindus believe the Babri Masjid, was built over a temple dedicated to Lord Ram, whose birthplace is also considered to be at the site. The construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is a great honour for every Hindu who were tirelessly fighting on the issue of Babri Masjid case nearly for the past two centuries. Exactly three decades before, on the same day the Supreme Court approved the construction of the Ram Temple at the disputed site, on November 9, 1989, the VHP had put the first stone for the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. Now Ayodhya is set to become the center national attention again with the beginning of the construction of the grand Ram Temple in the town.
The historic event showcases the triumph of one of India’s longest campaigns, one that found resonance with millions in the country and abroad. It marks the culmination of a sustained political campaign by his party, the Bharatiya Janata Party, for a temple to be built on the spot where a Hindu mob, watched by some BJP leaders, demolished a more than 400-year-old mosque in 1992 sparking riots that left almost 2,000 dead. Every Diwali, Hindus across the globe celebrate the return of Lord Ram to Ayodhya as the victory of good over evil. The Ram Janmabhoomi issue gained political currency after the then BJP president L K Advani started his ‘Ram Rath Yatra’ in 1990. Modi as a national office-bearer in the BJP played an important role in Advani’s ‘Ram Rath Yatra’.The senior leader, who is also key architect of the Ram Janmabhoomi movement, LK Advani said: “It’s my belief that Ram Mandir will represent India as strong, prosperous, harmonious nation with justice for all and exclusion of none.” Construction was approved by the supreme court in November, when it ruled that a temple could be built and land provided elsewhere for a new mosque, ending a protracted legal dispute.
Expressing the gratitude of all the people who had made huge sacrifices for Temple moment, PM Modi has rightly said “A grand temple will now be built for our Ram Lalla who had been staying in a tent for decades. Today, Ram janmbhoomi breaks free of the cycle of breaking and getting built again - that had been going on for centuries and the temple symbolises India’s rich heritage and will be an inspiration for all of humanity.” Ram Janmabhoomi is one of the major pilgrimage centers for the Hindus of India. In Ramayana the mythical granth of Hindus, it is said that Ram’s birthplace is on the banks of the Sarayu River in Ayodhya town. Ayodhya has been in the midst of a dispute and controversy, since last many decades, which has only increased since late 1980s. The controversial issue of Ram Janambhoomi and Babri Masjid has always been a big influence on Indian politics for several decades. Lord Ram is the embodiment of grace, dignity and decorum. This is the historic day for India - the largest secular democracy in the world that saw the end of a dispute spanning several centuries which had pitted the Hindu and Muslim communities against each other in the courts. The Ram Mandir will be etched in the sands of time as a symbol of Hindu awakening and restoration of pride of a community that has always believed in ‘live and let live’ and it will also bring economic activity to the region which has over the last so many years seen only politicians and politics.
