A dispute which had a history of 500 years was kept alive by politicians even so long after Independence. And during every election, it was used as a tool to lure the voters. But in the reign of Modi Govt, it did not take long to fulfill their promise from election manifesto. The verdict was given by 5 judges bench of Supreme court in Nov 2019 that the land shall be handed over to a trust to build the Hindu temple and the Sunni Waqf Board to be given another 5 acre land in Ayodhya to build a Mosque.
Meanwhile, 93-year-old K Parasaran, who fought Ramlala case in Supreme Court, saw the Bhoomi Pujan from his home. K Parasaran had last wish to see the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. Today, his wish has fulfilled with the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of Ram Temple.
BJP national general secretary BL Santosh and many others shared the picture of the eminent lawyer on social media watching the Bhoomi Pujan on TV. As soon as his picture was shared on Twitter, it went viral in no time.
Though it is a happy and historic moment for every Indian, it is particularly significant for the veteran lawyer who wanted justice over the Ayodhya Ram Mandir case. Such was his faith and devotion that, the 93-year-old lawyer for ‘Ram Lalla Virajman’, use to argue the Ramjanmabhoomi case barefoot standing for 4-5 hours at a stretch, as his faith felt the presence of God Ram.
