On 9th November 2019, the wait of Hindus came to an end. The most awaited Judgement on “BABRI MASJID” with which people’s feelings and unbreakable trust were linked finally delivered. The 5 judge Constitution bench, headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi ordered the land to be handed over to a trust to build the “RAM MANDIR” because the final decision was constructed on the assertion by the Supreme Court that the Sunni Waqf Board has not been able to establish its claim of possession apart from that, the Supreme Court tries to harmonize between the Hindus and Muslims so that no one’s religious sentiment hurt that’s why Supreme Court also ordered the government to give 5 acres of land to the Sunni Waqf board to build a mosque inside Ayodhya city.
Just after the Judgement, with full of joy the preparation was started for the construction of “RAM MANDIR”. On 5th August 2020, the Bhumi Pujan (Groundbreaking ceremony) of the grand temple happened. This day will be written in golden letters in the history of India.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Bhoomi Pujan ceremony was restricted to 175 official guests.
In his speech, Prime Minister said that the occasion marked the end of the centuries-long wait for a Ram Mandir and Saluted those whose struggle and resolve “laid the foundation stone” for the temple. He said as a ruler, Lord Ram did not discriminate among his people, but gave special attention to the poor. He claimed that the Supreme Court verdict had found universal acceptance, with people observing “MARYADA”.
The celebration of Bhumi Pujan marked the grand event not only in India but also in the world. Indian community in Washington, US celebrates Bhoomi puja.

“The ancient ideal of the Ramayana is undoubtedly one of true democracy in which the meanest citizen could be sure of swift justice without an elaborate and costly procedure a true Ram Rajya would ensure equal rights to both prince and pauper”
