The spiritual head of Ajmer shrine Friday night appealed to the people to maintain peace and harmony and respect the supreme court verdict on the Ayodhya case. The Supreme Court will pronounce the verdict in the communally sensitive Ayodhya case on Saturday. "I would like to appeal to Muslims and Hindus and every Indian citizen to maintain peace and law and order and to respect and welcome the decision of the court. This is the time to show our unity and brotherhood," the Dargah Deewan, Zainul Abedin Ali Khan, told PTI.
"We need to focus on the development and growth of our nation and the future of our youth. The entire world is looking at us and we all should show a united face and must respectfully welcome the decision," he said.
Khan said it was the birth month of prophet Muhammad, who was the symbol of peace, sacrifice and love, and the community should imbibe these values. The Supreme Court will pronounce the verdict in the politically sensitive case of Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute in Ayodhya at 10:30 am on Saturday, according to a notice uploaded on the top court’s official website.
The judgment, which is likely to end the decades of uncertainty, will be pronounced by a five-judge Constitution bench, headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi. Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer are the other four judges of the Bench.
On October 16, the top court had concluded the day-to day hearing and reserved the judgment. Hours before the announcement, CJI Gogoi held a meeting with Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary Rajendra Kumar Tiwari and DGP Om Prakash Singh and took note of the security arrangements.
