Not a union agitating organization: Bhagwat

Forget all the past and build a grand temple on the Ram Janmabhoomi. Citizens of India are citizens of India, we do not have separate messages for any Hindu or Muslim. The Sangh is not a movement organization.
Leaders’ statements after the Supreme Court’s decision:
Prime Minister Narendra Modi- The Supreme Court of the country has pronounced its verdict on Ayodhya. We should not see this decision as a victory or defeat of anyone.
Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray – today is a golden day in the history of India. There has been a dispute about the birth of Lord Rama when he was born, where he was born, whether he was born. The court has put a stop to this today. We welcome the decision of the court. We are going to Ayodhya on the 24th. There is a power that I have felt. Now I will definitely go there again and again.
AIMIM Asaduddin Owaisi – As long as the world remains intact, we will remain the turban of this country. We may not live but will tell the coming generations that the place where the mosque had been for 5000 years was demolished by the Sangh Parivar on 6 December 1992 and they gave the Supreme Court wrong information.
