Ayodhya

 Days before the anniversary of the demolition of the Babri Masjid on December 6, Hindu outfits here on Saturday said they would not observe the day as "Shaurya Diwas" this time in view of the Supreme Court verdicts in the Ayodhya case and urged people to maintain communal harmony.

The mahant of Tapaswiji ki Chhawani in Ayodhya Paramhansji Maharaj on Monday said RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat should head the trust to be set up for the construction of Ram temple.

Filing a review petition against the Supreme Court's Ayodhya verdict will not be in the interest of Muslims and will "harm" the unity between the two communities, National Commission for Minorities chairperson Ghayorul Hasan Rizvi said on Sunday.

Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said no power on Earth could get in the way of construction of a "grand" Ram temple in Ayodhya.

"They accepted the verdict with ease and with peace... I am particularly grateful to them for the patience, restraint and maturity shown by them," he said.

India has satisfyingly explained the Ayodhya judgment to other countries and the engagement with them on this matter has been "largely successful", Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said on Thursday.

Security arrangements in Ayodhya have been strengthened ahead of the anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition on December 6, a top official said today.
