The fundamental right of Hindus to worship is above the property rights of Muslims, and I am confident that the Supreme Court will deliver its verdict in our favour in November. The work of temple construction will begin after that”, said Swamy in Ayodhya.Earlier, Swamy offered prayers at the makeshift Ram temple in Ayodhya to celebrate his 80th birthday.
