Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said serious attempts should be made to accomplish the Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
Speaking at a condolence meeting that was organized to pay tributes to Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) patron Ashok Singhal, he recalled Singhal’s last meeting with him earlier this month and said he wanted two things to be accomplished–construction of Ram temple at Ram Janambhoomi and propagation of Vedas.
The same should be accomplished by working sincerely towards them, Bhagwat said.
“We have to make serious attempts to accomplish the Ram temple and that will be a true tribute to him. Ashokji’s spirit will guide us in this task. We have to keep moving and working on the path shown by Ashokji and in the coming few years we hope to work towards accomplishing his dream of Ram Temple,” he said.
“Ashokji during my meeting had shared his two resolves – of building the Ram Temple at Ram Janmabhoomi and spreading Vedic wisdom in the world. If we have to accomplish the resolve of Ashokji, we have to take a pledge today to make his resolve ours,” he added.
Bhagwat further said that ‘Singhal is no more but his thoughts are with us and the task he undertook (of building the Ram Temple) yielded some results’.
Bhagwat also said that Singhal, who had become synonymous with the Ram Temple movement, was an orator par excellence, a true stalwart of Hindutva movement, a good classical singer and a guiding force for all.
