After Ayodya Judgement - Saints meeting

ALLAHABAD: A committee of saints will meet here to study the verdict on the Ayodhya title suits as soon as the pronounces its judgment.

"A meeting of Sant Uchchadhikar Samiti will be held here at the ashram of Jagadguru Vasudevananda Saraswati, the pontiff of Jyotirmath shrine," district unit president Pawan Srivastava told PTI.

Srivastava said the meeting is likely to take place as soon as the verdict is out, but did not specify its exact timing.

He said the meeting will be attended by Vishwa Hindu Parishad supremo Ashok Singhal, after which the VHP will announce its "future course of action".

Depending upon the contents of the Allahabad High Court's Lucknow Bench order, the future course of action will be announced, he said.

The VHP has always maintained that the Ayodhya dispute could not be solved by any court of law and that facilitating the construction of a temple by an act of Parliament was the only solution to the vexed issue.

Meanwhile, Zafaryab Jilani, the convenor of Action Committee said that the will not be about Hindus or Muslims, but will reflect the victory of the rule of law and independence of the judiciary,

"These cases relating to the title and possession of Babri Masjid are apparently between two communities but actually they relate to the secular fabric of the country," Jilani, who is also counsel for the Sunni Central Waqf Board, said in a statement here.

"The personality of Lord Rama is not at all in dispute. He has been described as 'Imam-e-Hind' by the great poet of the East, Allama Iqbal, who had composed the Tarana-i-Hind (Saare Jahan Se Achcha Hindustan Hamara)," he said.

Jilani said, "Today's judgment should not be taken by the people of India in the sense of victory or defeat of any party or community, but rather they should take it as the victory of the rule of law and independence of judiciary."

"Any party to the dispute which may feel dissatisfied with the judgment as a whole or with any portion thereof, has the remedy of approaching the Supreme Court."

He appealed to people to maintain peace in the aftermath of the verdict.

"As such, we have to behave in a very responsible and disciplined manner and should not express our sentiments or feelings in any such manner which may offend the feelings or sentiments of others."

He said, "The issue of Babri Masjid does not relate even to the rule of Babar who had defeated Ibrabim Lodhi to take over the reigns of the country."

According to Jilani, who is associated with the case for the last 21 years, "Today's historic judgment is likely to decide the Babri Masjid controversy on the basis of admissible evidence and principles of law recognised by our judicial system."

"Whatever may be the findings of the court, one thing is likely to be vindicated today that our judiciary is competent and has the courage to decide each and every sort of dispute."

"Our judiciary is likely to vindicate today that it is not influenced by any considerations other than those which are recognised by the law of the land."
