Muslims leaders appeal for calm

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: The Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind on Tuesday appealed to the nation and the Muslim community in particular to maintain calm and refrain from celebrations or protests whatever be the verdict this coming Friday of the Special Bench of the Allahabad High Court hearing the Babri Masjid title suit.

Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind leader and Rajya Sabha member Maulana Mahmood Madani said that he was reconciled to the case going to the Supreme Court and that the Jamiat would respect the apex court's verdict as final.

Speaking to the media, he said Jamiat national executive had met on September 19 to discuss how to utilise their network and resources to maintain calm and peace.

He said a meeting at the Jamiat headquarters on September 18 attended by leaders of the All-India Muslim Personal Law Board, Jamat-e-Islami Hind, All-India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat and All-India Muslim Council had framed a four-point programme for the same.

The programme appeals to the Imams to desist from provocative speeches after Friday prayers and instead make special prayers for peace and tranquillity. It also promises steps to file an appeal if the verdict is against the community. Other points in the programme are to abide by the apex court verdict, requesting the government to take all necessary steps to maintain communal harmony and deal with lumpen elements of either community.

Expressing concern at the “deteriorating situation” in Kashmir, he said a conference would be organised at Deoband on October 4 to evolve a “peaceful and unanimous civilian response”.
