After saying that there shouldn’t be any opposition from Muslims to the construction of the Ram temple at Ayodhya, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy had suggested Hindus to “wake up.”
Hindus wake up! Muslims leaders are refusing to give up on a masjid,that is shiftable,to restore the holiest temple on the birthplace of Ram

His comments come amid spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar meeting the stakeholders in Ayodhya to resolve the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute. The spiritual guru will meet Iqbal Ansari and Haji Mehboob, the two stakeholders to the dispute. Earlier, Sri Sri met Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath in Lucknow. As per Sri Sri, he was involved as a mediator in the Ram Temple dispute of his own will. Sri Sri believes the court can’t a long-term solution to the Ram Mandir issue as he says that fifty years later someone can again raise the issue.
The BJP has cautioned that let the court first come to a conclusion. The VHP too appeared dismissive, saying no dialogue on the issue was needed as courts go by evidence and archaeological evidence was in favour of Hindus.
Environment is positive, people want to come out of this conflict. I know it is not easy, let me talk to everyone, it is too early to reach a conclusion: Sri Sri Ravi Shankar #RamTemple pic.twitter.com/1n5A6J2WzY

Earlier, the BJP’s firebrand leader had said Masjid can be built anywhere but not on Ram Janmabhoomi.
The Supreme Court had suggested that an out-of-court settlement was the best recourse to the dispute. The apex court will commence the final hearing of the long-standing matter from December 5.
He had also said that if the dialogues work out it would be more than welcome but at that the same time he also added that politicians like Asaduddin Owaisi would not settle the issue out of court.
As per claims, the mosque was built by the Mughal Emperor Babur in 1527 after destroying the Ram temple that existed there.
