There is much to say, but the voice is blocked.’
Modi said, ‘Questions were raised about the existence of Ram. Our judiciary has ensured justice. The temple was built according to the law. Surely there was no shortage in our efforts and sacrifices. So we could not do this for so many centuries. Today that work is finished. I hope Lord Rama will surely forgive us.’
Calling the Ram temple not just a temple, but the vision of India, the country’s prime minister said, ‘Ram is the constant, controller of the country, Ram is omnipresent. What we experience is His grace. This time is not only for victory, but also for humility.’

According to the Reuters news agency, India’s ruling party, the BJP, has brought forward the 35-year-old debate and made it a political issue, and the party has come to power through it.
