Ram temple at Ayodhya in 2009

KANCHEEPURAM: State propaganda secretary of the RSS Krishna Jaganathan has asserted that Ram temple will be built at Ayodhya in 2009.

Addressing a public meeting near Rangaswamy temple tank here last night, he said that the message of Ramayana was relevant to the society, especially when the threat of AIDS was looming large.

Prevention of AIDS would be possible if the values propagated by Lord Rama were followed by the youth.

Stressing that Hinduism was the essence of Indian culture and a way of life, Jaganathan said that Hindu scriptures and values should be taught in schools.
