Hindus would accept only a Ram temple in Ayodhya and no monument of Babar in the vicinity of Ram Janma Bhoomi, said International general secretary of Vishwa Hindu Parishad Milind Parande.

Addressing the media here on Thursday, Mr. Parande said four lakh Hindus had laid their life for the cause of constructing the Ram temple at Ayodhya. But, an inordinate delay in hearing the case had made him lose faith that Supreme Court would give its verdict in the immediate future. He wanted the Centre to promulgate a law permitting construction of the temple in Ayodhya.

The VHP would could awareness meetings on the temple issue at various places in the country between November 25 and December 9. Further course of action on the issue would be decided when Sadhus from all over the country descend for Kumbh Mela in January.

On Sabarimala issue, he said that there were police excesses and Hindus were agitated against the State-sponsored atrocity against Hindus. The VHP would stage protests in all southern States.

In Tamil Nadu, rampant religious conversions were carried out by by many Christian organisations, he said and sought the State government’s intervention in this matter.
