Welcoming the Allahabad High Court verdict on the Ayodhya title issue, VHP on Thursday claimed the ruling has established without doubt that the place where Ram's idol was existing was the birthplace of the Lord.

Addressing the media in New Delhi after the verdict was out, VHP international general secretary Pravin Togadia, however, demanded that a Ram temple should be built in the total area that comprises the (formerly) disputed area as well as the land acquired by the Central government.

"We salute and welcome the judgement of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court. It has now been established that the place where Ram's idol was existing was the birth place of the Lord. At least faith of one billion Hindus that Lord Ram was born here was also endorsed by the judiciary," he said.

While appealing all to maintain peace and calm, he said "At the same time, our saints have clarified that the 110X90 feet (formerly disputed area) and 67 acres acquired land both are part of the birth place of Lord Ram and we hope that a grand temple will be built in this total area".
