25 Years of Babri Mosque demolition: VHP celebrates Shaurya Diwas
The much-hyped 25th anniversary of Babri Mosque demolition passed off peacefully with no untoward incident reported from anywhere in the state as Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) celebrated the day as Shaurya Diwas while the Muslim organizations observed black day. A report from Ayodhya said that several shops and business establishments remained closed during the day. The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) held a programme at its headquarters, Karsevakpuram where Chairman of the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas Nritya Gopal Das declared that construction of Ram Temple will start from October 2018.
When told that the issue is pending in the court he said that court should respect the sentiment of the masses and deliver a verdict so that the matter is resolved once and for all. “We respect the judiciary, and its verdict would be respected by all,” he said. He said that a temple exists at the site, but the only issue was construction of a grand structure in accordance with the demand of Hindu masses. “The government should take the initiative of bringing a legislation for allowing the construction of Ram temple,” the Mahant said.
The VHP also organized function at Madhavsabhagar in Niralanagar in Lucknow where VHP volunteers across city came to attend the function. “This is the last Shaurya Diwas we are celebrating across the state. The next year we will celebrate this day at Ram Janmabhoomi where by then the construction of temple will start,” VHP leader Devendra Mishra said. Babri Masjid Action Committee Chairman Jaffaryab Zilani said that it was a day of sorrow for Muslims. In Lucknow and Faizabad Muslims offered special prayers in Mosque. In some localities Muslims even closed their shops as a mark of protest, he said. Meanwhile, some Muslims hoisted a black flag atop Beniganj mosque to registered their protest over the demolition of the disputed structure.
Meanwhile, a litigant in the Ayodhya dispute, Haji Mehboob, rejected Sunni Waqf Board counsel’s stand in the Supreme Court on Tuesday. “Kapil Sibal is our lawyer but he is also related to a political party. His statement in the Supreme Court yesterday was wrong... we want a solution to the issue at the earliest,” Haji Mehboob said. Faizabad district magistrate Anil Pathak said here that the situation was totally normal though strict vigil was being maintained. Pathak said that elaborate security had been made in and around the disputed structure where 12 companies of central forces along with 400 constables, one platoon of woman commandos, were deployed.
However, some dispute arose when a group of 20 Hindu Mahasabha volunteers tried to go for darshan of Ram Lalla in a group but authorities stopped them. They were later allowed to proceed one by one. A report from Meerut said that some unidentified people pasted some objectionable posters on Tuesday night in the city. Senior Superintendent of Police Manjil Saini said the posters were removed this morning and a probe was on to identify the miscreants. Similar posters were also pasted in Bijnore and some other western districts of the state.
