Action on verdict not possible for 10 years: Swami AgniveshSeptember 30th, 2010 - 9:19 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Sep 30 (IANS) Hindu spiritual leader Swami Agnivesh Thursday said implementation of the Allahabad High Court judgment on the Ayodhya land dispute is not possible for the next 10 years and that is why none of the parties is celebrating.
“The central government won’t be able to do anything for the next 8-10 years as the Sunni Wakf Board will approach the Supreme Court. Till then, peace shall prevail,” Swami Agnivesh told IANS.
The Allahabad High Court Thursday ruled that the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya was built after demolishing a temple on the site way back in 1528, and that the spot where a makeshift temple was built after razing the mosque in 1992 was indeed where Hindu god Ram was born.
“The whole question was mixed up with aspects like historical position of land, issue of faith, building of temple and mosque. The judgment itself has thrown multi-faced questions in front of the people of the country. Therefore, there is no celebration by any party,” he said.
The Lucknow bench of the high court also ruled that the land around the disputed site should be divided into three parts — one for Hindus, another for Muslims and the third for Nirmohi Akhara, a Hindu sect and an original litigant in the case.
“I appeal to the people to rise above narrow legalistic considerations of land ownership. It is a great opportunity for all communities to come together to turn this critical judgment into an historic opportunity to forge unity,” he added.
