Union Home Minister Amit Shah called Wednesday’s ground-breaking ceremony for the Ram Temple in Ayodhya a historic and glorious day for the country.

In a string of tweets, Shah who is currently being treated for COVID-19, said the bhoomi pujan by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has fulfilled the long-standing desire of millions of Hindus across the world for whom the construction of the temple has been a symbol of faith.

“The construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya has been a symbol of the faith of Hindus around the world for centuries. By performing the bhoomi pujan Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra have honoured the faith of crores of people, and for this, I express my heartfelt gratitude,” Shah tweeted in Hindi.

The home minister said the character and philosophy of Lord Shri Ram form the basis of Indian culture and the construction of the Ram Temple will once again put Ayodhya on the global map.

“The blend of religion and development here will help generate employment opportunities,” he said.

He also paid tribute to the devotees of Lord Ram whose “sacrifice, struggle and penance” through centuries has led to the construction of the Ram Temple.

Earlier, in the day Prime Minister Modi laid the foundation stone for the temple at Ayodhya in an event which was attended by 175 guests including seers and religious representatives of several cults.
