1. #Happy #Emotional No words to express. After 5 centuries getting a home for our #RamLalla How many sacrifices are done over this time period. Isn't this the Living Proof of tolerance & patience #Hindus have?

2. Isn't this what #SanatanDharma teaches? #Truth & #Dharma wins at the end. No where in the world can such beauty & miracle can be witnessed. All the Indians who lost their way and left our Dharma should do a #Gharwapsi

3. Indians will truly be indebted to many stalwarts & heroes who made this day possible for a billion #Hindus to witness this in our lifetime with their perseverance. Thanking them from the bottom of our hearts. #Justice is delayed but not denied. Light a #Diya
