The Ayodhya dispute over the Babri Masjid case has been going on for more than 60 years and there seems no end to it. Now, the Supreme Court has refused the urgent hearing of the Ayodhya case and has reallocated it to January 2019. This has raised anxiety among the population who are looking forward to seeing the Ram Mandir built before the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections.
In a haste to make matters work faster, the right-wing organizations are taking best attempts. However, the petition by the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha asking for an early hearing on the Ayodhya case was declined by the Supreme Court on November 12th. The previous month, the three judges’ panel headed by CJI Rangan Gogi had announced the final hearing to take place in January.
About 14 petitions have been filed challenging the Allahabad Court’s 2010 verdict which partitioned the Mosque’s land into 3 parts. The RSS I There are more pressing matters which are greater priorities for the Supreme Court were the comments by the judges.
And even if a sudden verdict is announced, the people and the Supreme Court are well aware of the consequences it will lead into. We clearly do not want to turn Ram Janmabhoomi or the land of the Babri Masjid into a violent place once again. The Hindutva preachers and activists consider the site in question to be the land where Shri Ram was born, hence demolished the mosque which was in its place. The destruction of the mosque implies the destruction of the secular thoughts and rising of communal riots.
The Ayodhya issue, unless it is squashed by the Supreme Court will destroy the very crux of our constitution, an attempt to create a violent atmosphere. The issue has been impelled by no other motive than political gain. The political agenda of parties which plan to divide the country on religion or caste basis is nothing but unconstitutional. The rule by an indoctrinated mob of misinformed individuals with an intoxicated mind-set of corrupted religiosity will turn out to be India’s biggest enemy.
