Ahead of Ayodhya judgement by Supreme Court, Muslim clerics urge everyone to accept verdict and maintain calm

The Supreme Court is expected to deliver its verdict on a dispute over the possession of 2.77 acres of land in Ayodhya district in Uttar Pradesh before November 17

With the verdict in the Ram Janambhoomi case imminent, the Muslim clerics have urged people to respect the apex court’s decision on the long-drawn row and asked people to maintain peace and calm. The Muslim clerics met Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi at his residence ahead of the Supreme Court’s much-awaited verdict on the Ayodhya dispute.

The Chairman of All India Sufi Sajjadanashin Council, Syed Naseruddin Chisty advised people of all religion to accept the court order. He also claimed that the council will issue guidelines to all dargahs and make an appeal to people to not believe in rumours and fake news.

Another Shia cleric, Maulana Syed Kalbe Jawad echoed similar sentiments saying that everyone should respect the honourable court’s decision and exhorted people to maintain peace and calm as the country primes itself for a resolution in one of the oldest legal disputes.

Yesterday, Ayodhya Police had issued notification calling out the rumour-mongers and cautioning them that strict action will be taken against those who will be found inciting unrest through sharing fake news, communally sensitive videos/messages on Facebook, Whatsapp and other social media platforms. The UP Police has assured that they are completely and absolutely ready for the verdict.

The district magistrate has instructed people to not make any defamatory comments against any religion, community, deities, eminent personalities on social media platforms. People have also been prohibited from organising any event regarding the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute. Section 144 has been imposed in Ayodhya till December 28. Those violating the orders will be booked under Section 188(disobedience of an order promulgated by public servant) of the IPC.

A five-judge Supreme Court bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi heard the Ayodhya case on a day-to-day basis for 40 days and reserved its verdict on October 16. The court is expected to deliver its verdict on a dispute over the possession of 2.77 acres of land in Ayodhya district in Uttar Pradesh before November 17, when CJI Gogoi retires.

The Hindu parties have laid claim to the entire 2.77 acres of land claiming that it is Lord Ram’s “janm sthan” and the Muslims came here only after 1528 when a mosque was forcibly built on the ruins of the erstwhile Ram temple.
