Union Law and Justice Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Saturday reiterated that the government is committed to building the Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
“The temple will be built at the same place where Ram lalla’s idol has been installed,” Prasad told the media after a convocation function at the Gujarat National Law University.
“The evidence we have in support of Ram Temple is constitutionally strong and we are very confident, the Supreme Court will rule in our favour and after that a grand Ram Temple will be constructed there constitutionally.”
Talking about factors that led to the BJP’s victory in Uttar Pradesh, Prasad said it was partly due to Muslim women who were affected by triple talaq.
“…the women who have been affected due to the practice. Just because we expressed concern for them, Muslim women voted for the BJP in good numbers. The state (UP) has the highest number of victims (of triple talaq),” he said.
“It is not an issue of religion but of gender justice, equality and dignity,” the minister said, adding that the Centre has already placed before the Supreme Court a strong argument against triple talaq.
