New Delhi, Nov 9: Reactions Vishva Hindu Parishad: Working president Alok Kumar said the SC order is a "decisive step towards construction of grand Ram temple in Ayodhya".
The VHP, he said, expects the central government to take speedy steps on the directions issued by the Supreme Court, including creation of a trust to build the temple. He claimed that 60 per cent of pillars and beams for the Ram temple are ready. "Today is a day of happiness for Hindus the world over," Kumar said.
The Supreme Court on Saturday cleared the way for the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site at Ayodhya, and directed the Centre to allot a 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque.
In one of the most important and most anticipated judgements in India's history, a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi put an end to the more than a century old dispute that has torn the social fabric of the nation.
The apex court said the mosque should be constructed at a "prominent site" and a trust should be formed within three months for the construction of the temple at the site many Hindus believe Lord Ram was born.
