AYODHYA, Sept 30 (IANS) - Ramjanmabhoomi Trust chief Mahant Nritya Gopal Das said here Thursday that the Allahabad High Court�s verdict on the Ayodhya title suits "should not be viewed in terms of victory or defeat of any religion".
"I would like to say that the verdict is not a victory or a defeat of a particular religion� It should only be viewed as the victory of Ram Lalla (the makeshift temple)," Das told reporters at a press conference in the Janki Ghat area.
"The High Court has given a historic judgment after accepting the fact that the Ram Lalla is associated with the birth place of Lord Rama� It�s really a matter of pleasure for the Hindus," he added.
Das appealed that members of both the communities must make every effort to maintain peace and communal harmony.
"It�s the responsibility of Hindus and Muslims to ensure peace prevails even after the verdict� It (verdict) should not affect the composite culture of the country� Hindu-Mulsim ties need to become more stronger after the verdict and I am hopeful that members from both the communities will make an all-out effort for the same," said Das.
