Meanwhile, ahead of the SC verdict, which is expected on or before November 17, the Muslims in Ayodhya have asked for paramilitary forces be deployed in the district. The ‘worried’ Muslims say while they have full faith in administration, the deployment of paramilitary forces will give them more ‘assurance’. The UP Police has said that they are ready to handle law and order situation ahead of the verdict. UP DGP OP Singh said that UP Police’s intelligence is geared up and if needed the National Securities Act (NSA) will be imposed on those who disrupt the law and order.
