New Delhi, December 16
The support of every Ram devotee from all over the country will be solicited for the grand temple to be built on the birthplace of Bhagwan Sri Rama in Ayodhya. For this, the Karyakartas of Vishva Hindu Parishad will go from door to door with the venerated saints and the rest of the people of society.
Announcing Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir Nidhi Samarpan Abhiyan, Vice-President of Vishva Hindu Parishad and Secretary General of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust Champat Rai said that in this intensive and extensive campaign from the upcoming Makar Sankranti (15th January, 2021) to Magh-Purnima (27th February), VHP Karyakartas would reach out to 110 million families of 400,000 villages of the country and propagate and flourish Ramatwa by connecting the common man directly with Shri Ram Janmabhoomi.
With the support of people of every caste, creed, sect, region and language of the country, the Ram temple would actually take the form of a Rashtra Mandir(Temple of the nation), he added.
Saluting the struggles and sacrifices of innumerable hindus, he called upon every Rama bhakt (devotee) to come forward enthusiastically and proactively for this Ram-Kaaj (cause). For this, we need not only funds-contributors but also time- contributors, he added.
Addressing media in New Delhi today, he said that Hindu society struggled for five centuries to protect the honour of the country by reclaiming the birthplace of Bhagwan Sri Ram. Finally, the Supreme Court accepted the sentiments of the society and the truths of history associated with the temple and directed the Government of Bharat to form a trust. The government announced a trust in the name of “Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra”. The Prime Minister accelerated the process of construction by offering worship in Ayodhya on August 05, 2020.
Rai said that preparations are underway to construct the temple. Engineers from IIT Mumbai, IIT Delhi, IIT Chennai, IIT Guwahati, CBRI Roorkee, Larsen & Toubro and Tatas are working on the foundation drawing. The foundation configuration and layout would very soon come out. The whole temple will be of stone blocks. Every-one of the three floors will be 20 feet high; the length and breadth of the temple will be 360 and 235 feet respectively.
Rai said that it is planned to make the present and the future generations of the country aware of the truths of the history of this temple. By going from door-to-door, at least half of the country’s 1350 million people will be made aware of the historical truths of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari and Attock to Cuttack, we won’t leave any corner of the country unvisited. The VHP Karyakartas(volunteers) will reach out to every nook & corner of the country, including the Rann of Kutch, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Andaman & Nicobar Islands and the mountainous, forest and desert regions of Bharat, to hand out Ram temple literature to people and seek their support. People have a strong desire that Sri Ram’s Nativity Temple should come up at His Janmabhoomi soon.
Rai said that millions of Karyakartas would take part in this historical campaign and the society would voluntarily cooperate and concrete because the work is of Bhagwan (God) and the temple is of Ram. Funds cannot be a hindrance in the work of God. In order to maintain transparency in the financial dealings and transactions, the trust has printed coupons and receipts of denominations of INR 10, 100 and 1000. Karyakartas will issue coupons or receipts according to what the society contributes. The picture of Bhagwan Sri Ram’s temple will reach millions of homes.
