In the Parliament on Wednesday, Prime Minister Modi had announced the formation of the 'Shri Ram Janambhoomi Teertha Kshetra' trust for the construction of the Ram temple. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar stated that with the formation of the Shri Ram Janambhoomi Teertha Kshetra, the "dreams of millions of Indians would be fulfilled."
I welcome the formation of the Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust by the government. This will fulfill the dreams of millions of Indians.— Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (@SriSri) February 5, 2020
Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has had a personal connection with the Ayodhya issue since he was chosen to be one of the mediators by the Supreme Court in the Ayodhya Mediation panel that was set up before the SC's verdict on the centuries' long issue. Earlier Sri Sri Ravi Shankar had proposed an out of court settlement between the two parties in which Muslim Parties come forward and gift the land in question to the Hindu bodies to build a Mandir, and in return, the Hindu bodies will gift some acres of land to the Muslim bodies to build a Mosque.
In a massive development on Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the formation of a trust for the development of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya. This move comes nearly three months after the SC ruling on the Ayodhya land dispute. In line with the SC judgment, an independent trust called ‘Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra' has been formed. This trust will be empowered to take decisions pertaining to the construction of the Ram temple. The UP government has agreed to hand over 5 acres of land to the Sunni Central Waqf Board. PM Modi's announcement was met with roars of 'Jai Shri Ram' in the Parliament.
