After clearing a long legal battle and also a four-decade-old political fight, the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya will commence on August 5. The journey has not been a pleasant one. It has seen allegations of hijacking issues, political intervention, the criminal act of the Babri structure demolition, riots and court cases. Sanket Upadhyay and Alok Pandey take you through two broad aspects of this journey. The first being the politics, the rise in the political fortunes of the present-day dispensation, with the Ram Janmabhoomi movement. The second - a brief history of how the temple of faith cleared various legal hurdles.
