RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday while speaking at a Viraat Hindu Sammelan at Dahanu in adjoining Palghar district of Maharashtra, blamed outside forces for the destruction of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, saying that the Indian nationals could not do such a thing.

"The Muslim community in India did not destroy the Ram Mandir. Indian nationals can't do such a thing. Foreign forces destroyed temples here to demoralise Indians," Bhagwat said.

"But today, we are independent. We have the right to rebuild whatever was destroyed because these were not just temples but the symbols of our identity," he said.

"If the Ram Mandir (in Ayodhya) is not rebuilt, the root of our culture will be cut. There is no doubt that the temple will be built at the spot where it was," Bhagwat said.

The RSS chief slammed Opposition parties, blaming them for inciting the recent caste violence in several parts of the country after they lost elections.

"Those whose shops have been shut (those who lost out in elections) are now inciting people to fight on issues of caste," Bhagwat said.

The Ram Janmabhoomi/Babri Masjid dispute is currently before the Supreme Court which would decide the land allocation of the contested site in Ayodhya. A Ram Janmabhoomi temple was originally built at the site, in the town which is considered to be the birthplace of Lord Rama.

However, in 1528, the temple was torn down and a mosque built in its place by Mughal emperor Babur and the mosque was known as Babri masjid, in his name. In December 1992 a frenzied mob of karsevaks tore down the Babri masjid, resulting in a dispute over what should be built on the land and to whom the land belonged.
