Bhopal: RSS would prefer framing a law for
the construction of Ram Temple at Ayodhya even if the
judgement on the issue of disputed structure does not come in
their favour, former RSS spokesman, Ram Madhav said here
today.

"I am convinced that the judgement would come in our
favour, but even then we would like to go for framing of a law
by the Parliament for the construction of Ram Temple in
Ayodhya as there is no guarantee that it will be constructed
after the verdict as other party will challenge it in higher
court," Madhav told reporters after a seminar.

Citing Shahbano case, he said despite court`s
verdict the executive never implemented it and even the law
was amended for it.

"What guarantee is there that this time also they will
not do so," he said.

Madhav was reacting to his earlier remark in the seminar
that if the government implements court`s decision on the
issue of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and Pakistani
gunman Kasab, then they will also abide by the court ruling.

He said that when they (government) did not abide by the
court judgement then how can they expect it from others and
therefore as happened in the Shahbano`s case the Parliament
should frame a law after holding a debate on constructing Ram
Temple at Ayodhya.
