After Supreme Court postponed the hearing of Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri masjid case for yet another future date, reactions started pouring in from various politicians, which included National Conference chief, Farooq Abdullah. Advocating for an out of the court settlement of the matter, Dr. Abdullah said that a solution can be found through discussion.
“This(Ayodhya) issue should be discussed and sorted out across the table between people. Why to drag the issue to the Court? I am sure it can be resolved through dialogue,” Farooq Abdullah said.
The National Conference chief further said “Lord Ram belongs to the whole world, not just Hindus” and that he will himself put a brick in the temple that would be built at Ayodhya.
“No one is against Lord Ram and neither anyone should be. We should try to resolve this matter amicably. The day the matter is resolved, I myself will go to put a brick. We need to find the solution at the earliest,” he added.
Meanwhile, Iqbal Ansari, the litigant in the matter stated that everyone should respect the Apex Court’s decision. “The Supreme Court is supreme and whatever decision they give will be good. India is run by its Constitution and the judgement will be based on the guidelines of the Constitution. I believe on the Supreme Court and the Constitution of India,” he added.
While calling for an urgent hearing in the matter, BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi said that “it is the matter of faith for 70 to 80 percent of the people of the country.”
