Ayodhya Judgment self esteem of people of India.
The Allahabad High Court judgment on Sep 30 on the Ayodhya dispute has given judicial recognition to the belief of millions of Hindus that the makeshift temple where Ram idols are installed is the deity’s birthplace.
In the latest post “It is not faith versus law, it is faith upheld by law” on his blog, L.K. Advani said he was extremely happy to say that after the “landmark judgment” delivered by the Allahabad High Court Sep 30, “the country has arrived at a fortuitous point where judicial verdict can form the basis of an amicable settlement between representatives of Hindu and Muslim communities”.
The judges were unanimous in their decision that Shri Ram Chandra Ji was born at the place, where his idol known as Ram Lala is Virajman for worship. Thus, the sanctum sanctorum belongs to Ram Lala Ji and that the idols will NOT be removed. The Hindu worship would continue as heretofore.
The High Court held that there was a Hindu temple at the site before it was demolished by Mir Baqi, under orders of Babur. The Archaelogical Survey of India had proved the existence of a Hindu place of worship beyond doubt. Therefore, construction of a mosque at the site of a demolished place of worship of another Faith was against the tenets of Islam.
Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi said Ayodhya judgment has paved the way for construction of a grand Ram temple and will act as a catalyst in maintaining unity in the country.
“This judgment has given a respect to belief and self esteem of the people of India, and it should be linked to self esteem of the country,”
