New Delhi: Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Sunday said it was hopeful that the Muslim community will give up its opposition to the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.
"We firmly believe the Muslim community will understand this truth... will respect religious sentiments... and will voluntarily give decision with regard to temple construction," Champak Rai, VHP's international general secretary, said at a press conference in Jaipur.
About expectations from the newly-formed BJP government at the Centre, the VHP leader said, "Government's duty is to protect every citizen.
No one should cut off head of our soldier...food inflation be reduced... every one expects this, not only VHP".
On completion of fifty years of VHP foundation, Rai said VHP would organise 'Hindu Sammelan' in every district of the country from November this year to February next year.
