After a five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice, Ranjan Gogoi cleared the way for the construction of a Ram Temple in the long-pending Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute case, a fake letter in the name of PM Narendra Modi started doing the rounds wherein it was alleged that the Prime Minister congratulated CJI Ranjan Gogoi for the Ayodhya Verdict and acknowledged the role of judges in making India a ‘Hindu Rashtra’.

Many Pakistan-backed fake news portals were caught sharing this spurious letter extensively. These bogus portals not only used this fake letter to deride the Indian judiciary by calling it communal but also attempted to denounce the Prime Minister of India hinting that he colluded with the five-member bench of Indian Supreme Court.

The letter, which appeared on the letterhead of the PM also ‘thanked’ the bench for ‘support during crucial time’. The letter with a typo which spells ‘commendable’ as ‘compendable’ was also being spread in Bangladesh media.

Now, to clear the air, Indian High Commission in Dhaka has published a circular in which it cautions people about a fake letter being circulated in some news media in Bangladesh. It mentions this above fake letter claiming that PM Narendra Modi has written a letter to Chief Justice of India congratulating him on Ayodhya Verdict.

In the circular, the Indian High commission calls the above letter completely ‘fake’ and ‘malicious’, which intended to mislead people in Bangladesh and create social disharmony, read the circular.

“It is most egregious and wrong on the part of those who are deliberately circulating fake and incorrect information to create misunderstanding about India in the public domain”, furthered the notice issued by the Indian High Commission in Dhaka.

Meanwhile, on the contrary to these bogus claims, hours after the historic Supreme Court verdict on Ayodhya, PM Modi in his address to the nation had congratulated the bench for patiently hearing all the sides for a continuous 40 days before coming to a unanimous decision and had also lauded the restraint showed by people saying that the verdict has been peacefully accepted by all. Modi said that the judgement ushered new dawn and every Indian should welcome this new era.

The Supreme Court of India, in a historic judgement ending a dispute spanning centuries, handed over the Ram Janmabhoomi site in Ayodhya to the Hindu parties.

The bench had said that the Central Govt should within 3 months formulate a scheme envisaging setting up of Trust to build the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. Possession of inner and outer courtyards to be handed over to the Trust. The apex court also ordered the union government to provide 5 acres of land at an alternate site at a prominent location in Ayodhya to the Sunni Waqf Board to rebuild the Babri Masjid which was demolished in 1992.

It may be noted that while the Ram Mandir will be built by a trust constituted by the central government, the Sunni Waqf Board will build the mosque on the plot given to them by the government at a prominent location in Ayodhya.
