A tensed India as AYODHYA verdict awaited

Today is the ‘D’ Day, a day of reckoning as India awaits its Ayodhya moment today. Nearly 18 years after the December 6, 1992 demolition of the Babri Masjid gave a flip to identity politics which set off communal violence that lasted for months then. India,has responded to every crisis in a matured way but the question everybody is asking today is how will India react to this communal stroke?. We all are Indians and none can divide us seems to be the mantra that could possibly throw light towards solving such a question.

The premises of the court’s Lucknow bench have been barricaded and paramilitary forces have been deployed in cities, including Mumbai,considered sensitive. There has been a lot of combing activity carried on by the local police in Mumbai to ensure safety of citizens. However, the Union home minister P.Chidambaram said, ”I don’t foresee any trouble.”

Many organisations connected with the dispute have also affirmed that they would respect the judgement of the court and abide by law. However, the situation seems very uncertain at the moment and given the emotive nature of the dispute, we would like to just invoke the Mahatma Gandhi quote, ” Ishwar Allah Tero Naam, Sabko Sanmati De Bhagwan”
