Comparing the fight for Ram Mandir to the freedom struggle, Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the bhoomi pujan ceremony said, “Ram is embedded inside us, mixed in our blood. Many buildings were destroyed, what was not done? Many efforts were made to erase his existence. But still, Ram is with us. This Ram Mandir will be the latest symbol of our culture and a symbol of our faith and national feeling. It will be a symbol of the resolution of crores of people.”
