Rajnath endorses Amit Shah's views on Ram temple

July 06, 2013 21:17 IST

Virtually endorsing Bharatiya Janata Party general secretary Amit Shah's statement on construction of RamTemple at Ayodha, party president Rajnath Singh on Saturday said all Hindus want it to come up there.

"I don't know what he (Amit Shah) has said. But if he had said so then what's wrong in it? All Hindus want a Ram temple there, Muslims wants a mosque there. But the matter is pending before the court. Let the court give its verdict. But if a RamTemple comes up there then we all would be happy," Singh, who was on a private visit in Kolkata, told reporters.

Shah, a close confidant of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, made his first visit to the make-shift Ram temple at Ayodhya after he took over as BJP general secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh recently.

"I have prayed that we together build a grand Ram temple here as soon as possible and restore Lord Ram to his rightful place," Shah had said during his visit to Ayodha.
