States step up security on Babri Anniversary

NEW DELHI: (AMN) Government has sounded high alert and security has been stepped in different part of the country particularly in Uttar Pradesh in view of the 18th anniversary of demolition of the Babri Masjid at Ayodhya.

Eighteen years ago, on December 6, a violent mob of Hindu zealots demolished centuries old mosque Babri Masjid leading to communal violence across the country killing thousand on people. The incident still haunts the Muslims and secular majority of the country. The demolition challenged the secular fabric of India.

Centre has asked the state government to keep vigil on disgruntled elements. Police official in cities of Ahmedabad, Surat (Gujarat), Mumbai, Hyderabad, Coimbatore, Bangalore and Calicut have been asked to monitor activities of religious groups.

The Uttar Pradesh Government has stepped up security across the state. The Faizabad Superintendent of Police A.K. Rai said that stringent security arrangements have been placed in Ayodhya and no vehicles would be allowed to enter the district from Monday morning while passes have issued for local vehicles in Ayodhya. Authorities have banned observance of the day by political parties through different functions to avert any law and order problem. Rapid Action Forces have also been deployed in several sensitive districts.

About 35 companies PAC and Rapid Action force have been deployed at sensitive districts including Allahabad, Varanasi, Mathura, Aligarh, Moradabad, Bareily, Gorakhpur, Mau and Azamgarh districts. The government has alerted intelligence agencies and has asked to keep eyes on miscreants and rumour mongers. Meanwhile major organizations from both Hindu and Muslim communities have announced not to organise any major programmes on this occasion.

Meanwhile the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) & Babri Masjid Movement Coordination Committee (BMMCC) has appealed the Muslims all over the country and all the secular forces not to forget the 18th Anniversary of the Demolition of the Babri Masjid, whose culprits are still at large and many have not even been prosecuted so far.

The AIMMM & the BMMCC also expressed anguished over  the Special Bench of the Allahabad High Court Judgment of  September 30. they said that it  did not take notice that the Masjid which stood since 1528 but was demolished in a shameful act of vandalism in 1992.

“Under the Rule of Law it should have ordered its rebuilding, before proceeding with the title suit & passing the verdict on title. The Special Bench appears to have acted on the assumption that the Masjid still stood, as it was before 1992, on the day of Judgment in 2010” they said.

The organisations however appeal to the Muslim Community and the Secular forces not to organize any public demonstration, and restrict themselves to meeting in Masjids, & other halls, recall the tragedy, and to pray to Allah to restore the Masjid.
