Mangalore, September 20: M. B. Puranik, the VHP leader, called upon leaders of both Hindu and Muslim communities to respect the final verdict of the Allahabad High Court on the Babri Masjid case, which will be delivered on Friday September 24, at 3:30 p.m. Mr. Puranik was speaking at a press conference held at Hotel Ocean Pearl on September 20, Monday.
He added that senior Hindu and Muslim leaders in DK, Kasargod, Kodagu, and Udupi have decided to maintain peace and law and order on that day and respect the court verdict, irrespective of whether it is in their favor or not. The defeated party will not hold any protest and the winner will not celebrate in order to avoid provoking any community to violence. He urged citizens to support the police department and the district administration to maintain peace and avoid organizing processions and provocative speeches on that day.
Ex MLC K. S. Mohammed Masood said that Hindu and Muslim leaders should respect the court’s verdict, maintain peace, and resolve their differences through respectful dialogue in future.
MLA Yogish Bhat said that the government has made all attempts to maintain peace in the sensitive coastal regions, which have witnessed a lot of communal turmoil in recent years. He added that he has already spoken to Hindu and Muslim leaders about it and have agreed on the matter. He added that the district administration will take strict legal action against such anti law activities.
Declaring that India has the world’s best constitution, MLA U. T. Khader said that the people of Ayodhya are living like one family without any communal tension, but people in other parts of India are fighting with one another.
Vinay Shetty, Sharan Pumpwell, Basha Thangal, Haji C. Hameed, Ibrahim Kodijal, Jagadish Shenava, Gopal Kutthar, and others were present.
