HC didn`t resolve main dispute in Ayodhya case: Swarupanand
Mumbai: Observing that the main dispute in
the Ayodhya issue was not yet resolved, Swami Swarupanand
Saraswati, President of Ramjanmabhoomi Punaruddhar Samiti, on Saturday said the entire land should be handed over to Hindus so
that a Ram temple could be built there.
"The verdict given by the Allahabad High Court does not
solve the main dispute. Despite observing that the land was
Lord Ram’s birth place, the court divided it into three parts
between Hindus and Muslims," he said at a press conference
A three-member bench of Justices SU Khan, Sudhir Agarwal
and DV Sharma of High Court had last year ruled that there be
a three-way division of the disputed land - one-third for the
Sunni Waqf Board, one-third for the Nirmohi Akhara and
one-third to the party for `Ram Lalla`.
Ramjanmabhoomi Punaruddhar Samiti has approached the
Supreme Court earlier this year challenging the High Court
"The disputed land belongs to Hindus and is the birth
place of Lord Ram. How can Hindus and Muslims divide the land
and build a temple and a masjid so close to each there. There
is bound to be tension and constant fights," Swarupanand said.
He however added that the temple should be built by
residents of Ayodhya, and not any of the political parties
which have vested interests in the issue.
