In this case, Vishnu Shankar Jain, counsel for Shri Vishnu, argued that there is no dispute in this case that the temples were demolished. Hence, there is no need to prove it. We are suffering for more than 800 years. Now we are asking right to worship, which is our fundamental right. According to Section 18 of the ASI Act 1958, the right of worship can be given even in protected monuments.
