Karna CM urges people to 'wholeheartedly welcome' SC in Ayodhya case
Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Saturday urged people of the state to “wholeheartedly welcome” the Supreme court verdict in the sensitive Ayodhya land dispute case, and not to react “emotionally.”
He said, the judgement is neither a victory, nor a defeat for anyone.
“Let us all wholeheartedly welcome the apex court verdict. This is neither a victory for anyone, nor a defeat for anyone. Don’t react emotionally. Let the harmony and peace prevail. #AYODHYAVERDICT #AyodhyaCase” Yediyurappa tweeted.
The Supreme Court on Saturday cleared the way for the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site at Ayodhya, and directed the Centre to allot a 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque.
The top court said the mosque should be constructed at a “prominent site” and a trust should be formed within three months for the construction of the temple at the disputed site, where many Hindus believe Lord Ram was born.
The Chief Minister had earlier asked people to accept the court verdict with “equanimity”, and maintain peace and harmony in the society.
“As the supreme Court gives its verdict on #Ayodhya case today, let us accept it with equanimity.
Let us respect the Constitution and the Judiciary system of the nation. Let us be committed to maintain peace and harmony in the society,” he had tweeted.
In one of the most important and most anticipated judgements in India’s history, a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi put an end to the more than a century old dispute that has torn the social fabric of the nation.
