Ayodhya verdict will not be victory or defeat for anyone, says Modi

Ayodhya verdict will not be victory or defeat for anyone, says Modi

New Delhi, Nov 8 (UNI) Ahead of Supreme Court pronouncing its verdict on India’s most sensitive and divisive political case of Ayodhya temple, Prime minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that the whatever apex court’s decision, it will not be a victory or defeat for anyone and the people should maintain harmony together.

'Even after the decision of the court, we all have to maintain harmony together,' Mr Modi said in his tweet in Hindi.

'My appeal to the countrymen is that it should be the priority of all of us that this decision should further strengthen the great tradition of peace, unity and goodwill of India,' the Prime Minister maintained.

He said ,'Keeping the honor of the judiciary of the country paramount, all the sides of the society, socio-cultural organisations, all the parties who have made efforts to create a harmonious and positive atmosphere in the past are welcome. Even after the decision of the court, we all have to maintain harmony together.'

The Supreme Court's decision on Ayodhya is coming tomorrow, he said. 'For the past few months, the matter was being heard continuously in the Supreme Court, the whole country was watching eagerly. During this period, the efforts made by all sections of the society to maintain an atmosphere of goodwill are greatly appreciated,' the Prime Minister stated.

The top court is expected to pronounce its verdict at 1030 hrs on Saturday.

The five-judge bench of the Supreme Court heard a batch of petitions challenging the judgment of Allahabad High Court on September 30, 2010, trifurcating the disputed land in Ayodhya into three equal parts among Ram Lalla, Central Sunni Waqf Board, and Nirmohi Akhara.

These three parties, however, moved the top court challenging the high court verdict and sought the modification of its judgment.

The bench completed the daily hearings in the matter on October 16 for 40 days and reserved its verdict.

Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi met Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary and Director General of Police and took stock of the law and order situation in Ayodhya and other parts of the state.
