As spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar meets stakeholders in Ayodhya to resolve the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute, firebrand BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Thursday urged Hindus to “wake up” and take action to “restore the holiest temple on the birthplace of Ram”.

In a tweet, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said: “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.”

Known for his controversial statements, the Rajya Sabha MP had last month said that the construction of the proposed Ram temple in Ayodhya will commence soon and it will be ready by next Diwali.

Meanwhile, the Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar arrived in Ayodhya and held talks with Hindu leaders and other stakeholders.

The spiritual guru had on Wednesday met Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath at his residence in Lucknow to discuss the contentious issue.

As per reports, in the 30-minute long meeting, Ravi Shankar briefed the Chief Minister about his initiative to try thrash out a mutually acceptable formula to the long simmering dispute.

Ravi Shankar also held a meeting with senior Muslim cleric Khalid Rashid Firangimahali.

Last month, Ravi Shankar had expressed his willingness to mediate in the Babri Masjid-Ram Mandir dispute.
