New Delhi, Aug 1 (PTI) The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Saturday said the foundation stone-laying ceremony of the Ram temple in Ayodhya is a glorious moment for the country.

“With construction of this temple, nationality of Indians cannot be now linked to any foreign invader and it will be defined by the inspiring narratives of the patriarchs and matriarchs of the nation such as Lord Shri Ram," VHP's central joint general secretary Surendra Jain said.
