New Delhi: Appealing for restraint, the RSS today said the Allahabad High Court verdict on Ayodhya title suit should not been seen as anybody's victory or defeat and sought people's support for construction of a Ram temple.

"The judgement has paved the way for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya...The judgement is not a win or loss for anybody. We invite everybody, including Muslims, to help build the temple," Sarsangchalak Mohan Bhagwat told reporters.

"The court verdict should not be seen as anybody's victory or defeat," he reiterated.

Bhagwat also said the joy and happiness over the verdict should find expression in a "controlled and peaceful manner" within the limits of law and constitution.

"Uncalled for provocation must be avoided," he said adding, the movement for a Ram temple was "not a reactionary one nor it is against any particular community."

Bhagwat also appealed to the Muslims to "forget the past".
