NEW DELHI: Elated at the

Special CBI court

verdict acquitting all 32 accused accused of demolishing the Babri mosque, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (

VHP

), welcomed the decision saying, “today’s judgment in the criminal case relating to the disputed structure in Ayodhya is a vindication of truth and justice ... This judgment, now hopefully, draws the final curtains on an issue that had been agitating the Hindu psyche for some 472 years.”
According to VHP’s national spokesperson Vinod Bansal, " Their priority is to ensure that

Ram temple

being built in Ayodhya is completed in keeping with all its splendour and glory”. On the issue of joining the movement to restore other “disputed sites”, Bansal says, “we will follow the will of the sant samaj (Hindu religious leaders) with regard to other temples like Kashi and Mathura once the mission to build the Ram temple is over." This makes it clear that the VHP is unlikely to back out from any other Ayodhya-type movements at different sites.
Never apologetic on demolition of the Babri mosque, the VHP statement lists the sufferings of “Ram Bhakts” saying, “Sadly, it has taken 28 years to deliver justice ... Ram Bhakts have suffered ... The case was based on 49 FIRs, 351 witnesses produced by the prosecution and some 600 documents … We remember with gratitude, the 17 of them who unfortunately left for their heavenly abode during the trial. They include Ashok Singhal, Mahant Avaidyanath, Pujya Paramhans Ramchandra Das, Rajmata Vijaya Raje Scindia, Acharya Giriraj Kishore, Shri Bal Thackery, Vishnu Hari Dalmia and Vaikunth Lal Sharma.”
The statement says: “The judgment of 9th November 2019 by Supreme Court unanimously settled that the subject land in Ayodhya does in fact belong to Ram Lalla. Today’s judgment has busted the conspiracy theory. It is time to eschew politics, shed prejudices and instead to keep looking into the past now to look forward to work unitedly for the unity and progress of Bharat.”
Calling upon “Society to now look forward to the urgent tasks at hand, the completion of a Grand Temple at Shri Ramjanmabhoomi, the eradication of social inequalities to bring about social, educational and economic upliftment of the Scheduled Castes, Tribes and other economically backward sections of the Society as also to build a strong and stable Bharat.”
