Saffron age is here, Ram temple next year: VHP makes it clear A model of the proposed Ram temple , which the VHP wants to build on the site of the demolished Babri Mosque, is pictured in Ayodhya. File/Reuters

New Delhi: The Viswa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Sunday made it clear that the construction of a grand Ram temple at Ayodhya would begin next year.

India entered a "saffron age" due to the Ram Janmbhoomi movement, VHP leader Surendra Jain said on Saturday even as announcing the construction of the temple.

Jain, the VHP's joint general secretary, was speaking here at a conference on "The Ram Janmbhoomi Movement: A Renaissance" at NDMC convention center in central Delhi.

"India entered into the saffron age because of Ram Janmbhoomi movement and is headed to become world's superpower. The participation of 16 crore people during different stages of the movement made it world's largest movement," he said.

"This movement became a renaissance and invoked the pride of Hindus and the country's potential. The construction of a grand Ram Temple at Ayodhya will begin in 2018."

Addressing the conference, VHP spokesperson Vijay Shankar Tiwary said that the movement defined the nationalism and established that India is known as a country of Maharana Pratap and Chatrapati Shivaji and not of Babar, Mahmud of Ghazni and Ghauri.

Gyanendra Bartaria, a Prasar Bharti advisor, said that Hinduism is nationalism.
