In light of the Ayodhya hearing getting deferred, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), on Friday, vowed to launch an agitation if the Supreme Court did not take the Hindu community's sentiments into account.
The threat of the agitation was made at the end of a three-day executive body meet of the RSS at the Thane district.
SC's decision 'insult' to the Hindu community, says RSS
Speaking to media at the end of the meet, RSS general secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshi said that the Supreme Court's decision to defer the hearing of the Ayodhya-Babri Masjid dispute, and not hear it on priority basis was an "insult" to Hindu sentiments.
He added that the apex court's decision left the Hindu community in pain and anguish.
"A legal sanction is required to pave way for the construction of the temple. The wait for the court's verdict has been too long. Since the matter was listed (for hearing) on October 29, we felt Hindus would get good news before Diwali," said the RSS general secretary.
