BJP MP Vinay Katiyar on Saturday stirred the hornet's nest by saying that Ram Janambhumi demands sacrifice from the Hindu community. 

"Ram Janmabhoomi is demanding another sacrifice, just like several karsevaks (volunteers) achieved martyrdom when Mulayam Singh ordered shooting on December 6, 1992. The Hindu community must get ready for another revolution," Katiyar told media after a public rally in Ayodhya on Saturday. 

The BJP leader was referring to the Babri Masjid demolition incident, which had resulted in the deaths of several karsevaks and protesters.

Katiyar's controversial statement came hours after Subramanian Swamy wrote a ltter to the prime minister, recommending an ordinance on Ram Mandir. 

On Saturday, Subramanian Swamy wrote a letter to PM Modi saying that 'Govt can bring an ordinance on ownership of Ram Janmbhoomi land and thus pass a law to hand over the land to an eminent body of religious leaders especially those versed in Agama Sastra, with a direction to build Ram temple'.

"Congress-influenced lawyers have the agenda to halt the progress in the case. Therefore I thought we must make Constitution and law our weapon - bring an ordinance," Swamy said in his letter. 

The existing claimants can be duly compensated for the loss of their claim on the title of the land, Swamy added.
