Day Ayodhya issue is resolved, I will go and lay a brick: Farooq

New Delhi, Jan 4: Advocating the need for dialogue to find the solution to the issue of Ayodhya land dispute, former J&K chief minister Farooq Abdullah said that Lord Ram belongs to the whole world and not just Hindus.
Speaking shortly after the Supreme Court on Friday fixed hearing in the case to January 10, Abdullah said that the entire matter should not have been taken to the courts.
“This (Ayodhya) issue should be discussed and sorted out across the table between people. Why to drag the issue to the Court? I am sure it can be resolved through dialogue,” he said. “Lord Ram belongs to the whole world, not just Hindus.”
Abdullah further said that no one is against Lord Ram but that the issue of a temple in Ayodhya needs to be settled quickly. “The day the matter is resolved, I myself will go to put a brick.”
