Religious leaders hail verdict

Staff Correspondent

KOLAR: A The situation remained calm in Kolar on Thursday even as large sections of people welcomed the historical judgement of the Allahabad High Court on the Ayodhya dispute.

Shops and trading establishments downed their shutters in the afternoon. The youth were seen playing cricket on the deserted roads. Police had made elaborate security arrangements particularly in Ammavaripet, Clock Tower and other areas to avoid untoward incidents.

Welcomed

Leaders of different faiths and political parties welcomed the verdict, hailing it as vital in maintaining communal amity and peace.

Anjuman Islamia president K.M. Zamir said that he was not concerned with what the Babri Masjid Action Committee would do in the future. “As Indian citizens, we should respect the court verdict,” he told The Hindu.

Afroz Pasha, former president of the city municipal council (CMC), though happy with the verdict, said: “A hospital for poor or a park at the disputed site would have been a better option. Building temple or masjid is not necessary,” he said.

Senior Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Gandhinagar Narayanswamy termed the verdict as helpful in maintaining communal harmony among people of different faiths.

CMC member Jayanthilal opined that Hindus and Muslims should join and help each other building the temple and masjid in Ayodhya. District Wakf Board president Abdul Khayyum also welcomed the verdict.
