"I have said that construction of the temple is like a movement to establish the country's self identity. It is an identity of our country and we have to establish it," he said speaking to reporters at the Kumbh Mela in Allahabad.

The VHP has demanded that a bill be introduced in the monsoon session of Parliament so that Ram Janambhoomi land could be handed over to the Shri Ram Janambhoomi Nyas for construction of the Ram temple.

It adopted a resolution at the central advisory committee meeting yesterday asking the government in this regard failing which the "Hindu samaj will be compelled to launch a massive agitation".

When asked to comment on home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde's Hindu terror remark, Bhagwat said Hindus don't indulge in violence.

"Violence and terrorism have never had a place in the RSS or the entire Sangh Parivar," said Bhagwat.
