Rashtrawadi Shiv Sena, a radical Hindu group, staged a demonstration here, demanding that the government pave the way to construct a temple in Ayodhya following the Allahabad High Court's verdict on the Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri Mosque title suit.

A three-judge bench of the Allahabad High Court had ruled on September 30 that the Ramlala idol would remain on the disputed land in Ayodhya, deeming it Lord Ram's birthplace.

The court divided the 2.77 acre disputed site among three parties, The Sunni Waqf Board; The Nirmohi Akhara and the party representing 'Ram Lala Virajman'. The 8000 page verdict came after nearly 60 years of litigation.

The Sunni Waqf Board has, however, expressed dissatisfaction with the judgement and decided to file an appeal in the Supreme Court.

"By the verdict of the three judge panel it is proved to the world that the disputed land of Ayodhya is the birth place of Lord Ram. Taking this point into consideration, problems that are being faced or the obstacles that are coming in the way of construction of the temple, we want that the President must intervene in the matter," Jai Bhagwan Goel, Secretary, Rashtrawadi Shiv Sena said on Sunday.
