Prime Minister has asked his council of Ministers not to make any comment on the Ayodhya verdict to maintain harmony and peace in the Nation.
On Wednesday Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed his council of Ministers on the sensitive matter of Ayodhya warning them to not make any unnecessary comments. He said the primary objective is to maintain harmony in the country, sources said. The Supreme Court will be giving their verdict on Ayodhya before the retirement of Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi on November 17th.
In the latest edition of his “Mann ki Baat” radio program on October 27, PM Modi had recalled how the government, political parties, and civil society prevented attempts to create fissures when the Allahabad High Court ruling on the disputed land in Ayodhya was to be delivered in 2010.
He had described it as an example of how a united voice could strengthen the country. Prime Minister has asked his council of Ministers not to make any comment on the Ayodhya verdict to maintain harmony and peace in the Nation.
He also emphasized that the verdict should not be seen through the prism of victory and defeat, they added.
Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party had also asked its workers and spokespersons to refrain from making emotive and provocative statements on the Ram temple issue. The party also told its MPs to visit their constituencies for maintaining calm.
The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh issued a similar word of caution to its cadre a few days ago. Sangh asked its volunteers to not to celebrate or carry out processions if the Ram temple verdict was in their favour.
Senior RSS and BJP leaders reached out to prominent Muslim clerics and intellectuals on Tuesday and held a meeting with them, during which it was stressed that irrespective of the nature of the court ruling, there should neither be “junooni jashn” (excessive celebration) nor “haar ka Hungama” (brouhaha over defeat).
