Appealing for restraint, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha on Thursday said the Allahabad high court verdict on Ayodhya title suit should not been seen as anybody's victory or defeat and sought people's support for construction of a Ram temple.
"The judgement has paved the way for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya. The judgement is not a win or loss for anybody. We invite everybody, including Muslims, to help build the temple," Sarsangchalak Mohan Bhagwat told mediapersons.
"The court verdict should not be seen as anybody's victory or defeat," he reiterated.
Bhagwat also said the joy and happiness over the verdict should find expression in a 'controlled and peaceful manner' within the limits of law and constitution.
"Uncalled for provocation must be avoided," he said adding, the movement for a Ram temple was 'not a reactionary one nor it is against any particular community.'
Bhagwat also appealed to the Muslims to 'forget the past.'
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad also on Thursday welcomed the Allahabad high court verdict on the Ayodhya title issue saying the faith of Hindus has been endorsed by the judiciary.
"We welcome the judgment. The faith of one billion Hindus that Lord Ram was born here has been endorsed by the judiciary," VHP international general secretary Pravin Togadia told PTI in New Delhi.
He said the judgment would now pave the way for construction of the Ram temple at the disputed site.
