Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader on Thursday said Parliament should pass a law to facilitate construction of a Ram temple at Ayodhya to respect the sentiments of Hindus.
"Hindus are being fooled by the antics of successive governments in the country. No court of law is going to provide an answer to the deadlock over the Ram temple issue.
"It is high time that our elected representatives respect the sentiments of the community by facilitating construction of the temple by an Act of Parliament", VHP president Ashok Singhal said.
Addressing a function organised under the banner of "Arundhati National Policy Research Centre" founded by him, Singhal expressed strong displeasure over "insensitivity towards the feelings of the majority community even in the 60th year of the Constitution having come into force".
"Do Hindus have no claim to religious rights, which the Constitution guarantees to every citizen. Political leaders must stop fooling the community by setting up Commissions of inquiry like Liberhan which do little except coming out with delayed reports", the VHP supremo said.
