Emphasising that the wait and promise of five centuries was fulfilled on Monday with the consecration ceremony at the Ram temple in Ayodhya, Home Minister Amit Shah said many generations sacrificed so much waiting for this moment, but no “fear and terror” could shake the resolve to build the temple again at Shri Ram Janmabhoomi.
In a message on ‘X’, Shah said that today, this resolve has been fulfilled under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and for this, he expressed his gratitude to him from the bottom of his heart.
“On this auspicious day, I also pay my respects to all those great men who kept this struggle and determination alive for centuries, endured many insults and tortures, but did not leave the path of religion,” he said.
“The struggle of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, thousands of great saints and innumerable famous and unknown people has yielded a pleasant and successful result today,” he wrote.
Shah, who performed a puja at the Birla Mandir here, said the huge Shri Ram Janmabhoomi temple will remain a unique symbol of “imperishable eternal culture” for ages.
