BJP stalwart LK Advani, acquitted of conspiracy charges in the 1992 Babri mosque demolition, said today that the judgment vindicated his and the BJP’s belief and commitment towards the Ram temple movement.
He also said he had chanted “Jai Shri Ram” after the verdict, describing it as a “moment of happiness for all of us”.
“The judgment vindicates my personal and the BJP’s belief and commitment towards the Ram Janmabhoomi movement. I also feel blessed that this judgment has come in the footsteps of another landmark verdict of the Supreme Court given in November 2019, which paved the way for my long cherished dream of seeing a grand Ram Mandir at Ayodhya, the foundation-laying ceremony of which was held on August 5,” Advani, 92, said in a statement.
He said he “wholeheartedly welcomed the significant judgment”. He added: “Along with millions of my countrymen, I now look forward to the completion of the beautiful Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.”
