Welcoming the Supreme Court verdict, RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat said his organisation will start efforts to build the temple at the earliest. He said the verdict should end the conflict and hoped that the Centre will start measures to implement the order at the earliest.

“The verdict should not be seen as a victory for some and defeat for others,” he told reporters here at a press conference on Saturday. He said all aspects of the case reflect in the judgement. He congratulated the judges and said the governments and the social organisations also deserve appreciations for ensuring peace. “The people of the country also patiently waited for the judgement,” he said.

He appealed all sections of people to approach the judgement in a calm manner. He said the organisation will study the judgement soon to take a position that five acres of land were allotted by the court to the Sunni Waqf Board inside Ayodhya to build a mosque. The RSS’s frontal organisations were of the opinion that no land should be given to build the mosque in Ayodhya. “Future tasks will be decided soon. Everyone should together build the temple,” he appealed.

When asked about the conflicts in Kashi (Varanasi) and Mathura, he said the RSS is not an agitational organisations. “There have been some historic reasons behind why the RSS joined in the agitations (n Babri Masjid). It was an aberration. Now, we will continue for the welfare of mankind,” he said. The two mosques are now protected under an act of Parliament at the moment.
