Speaking at the Hindu Litfest, Tharoor made the following statement:

"On the Ram Janmabhoomi, as a Hindu obviously I am very conscious that a vast majority of my fellow Hindus believe that this was the specific birthplace of Ram and for that reason most good Hindus would want to see a Ram temple at the sit where Ram was supposed to be born.
