During a two day meeting at New Delhi, senior RSS leaders and prominent dignitaries deliberated upon ways to maintain communal harmony in wake of the Ayodhya verdict which is expected to be delivered before the 17th of November when the current Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi retires.
The discussions which began on Wednesday and continued on Thursday were attended by BJP working president JP Nadda on both days. They primarily revolved around the impending Ayodhya verdict, ANI reported. The functionaries of the RSS expect people to be celebratory following the verdict but believe it’s the duty of every individual to ensure that the sentiments of the other community are not hurt.
As per the report, one senior functionary said that there was no scope for “aggressive behaviour” such as taking out processions in neighbourhoods dominated by a particular community. RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and senior functionaries Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi, Dattatreya Hosabale and Manmohan Vaidya, VHP’s Justice V S Kokje and Alok Kumar along with other office bearers and ‘kshetriya pracharaks’ were part of the meeting on Thursday. Reportedly, one Sangh functionary stated that the RSS and the BJP will coordinate their efforts to ensure that peace isn’t disturbed.
Earlier, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) had cancelled all its scheduled events lined up for the month of November. The Supreme Court concluded hearings on the matter on the 16th of October before reserving the verdict. Earlier, authorities had imposed section 144 at Ayodhya which would last till the 10th of December. The prohibitory order bars the assembly of four or more persons across the district.
