The construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya is still on the Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s (VHP) agenda, said the Parishad’s international working president Pravin Togadia, while assuring supporters that the same would be constructed soon.

Togadia’s address came while he was in Jaipur to launch a socio-medical project, India Health Line.

In his speech, he also said that the safety and security of Hindus worldwide, food for the needy and providing gainful employment for the youth are all on the Parishad’s agenda.

“Swabhimaan means a Ram temple in Ayodhya, no slaughtering of cows, no religious conversion of Hindus and the safety of all Hindus,” he said.

Togadia said a World Hindu Congress would be held in New Delhi in November in which Hindu representatives from across the world would converge.

Speaking about incidents of attacks on pilgrims in the Amarnath yatra, Togadia asked why Muslim pilgrims in Ajmer are never attacked.

“Are Hindus not allowed to breathe? Innocent Hindus’ should not be attacked,” he added.
