Belagavi, Nov 13 : The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Wednesday urged the Uttar Pradesh government to withdraw cases registered against the 'kar sevaks' and senior leaders including former deputy prime minister L K Advani for allegedly demolishing Babri Masjid in 1992.
Two-day-ago, the Hindu Mahasabha too expressed a similar demand.
Senior VHP leader Vishvesh Teertha Swami termed the movement on Ayodhya seeking a temple of Lord Ram as a ''struggle for freedom''.
"Ayodhya disputed site was very important to the Hindus as we believed Ram was born there. I welcome the Supreme Court’s judgment that Muslims should get five acres in Ayodhya", he said.
The VHP leader also urged both Hindus and Muslims to come together to build a temple of Lord Ram on the disputed site and a mosque on the five acre land which will be given by the government. The leader, however mentioned that he was not in favour for a similar moverment as of Ram janambhoomi, in Kashi and Mathura. "They are not big problems. Ayodhya was one and it has been solved", he stated (UNI)
