This is a coverage directly from the Supreme Court of India on the last day of the hearing of the much-discussed Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid issue of Ayodhya. Our correspondent, Kavita Bundelkhandi speaks to two important social workers who changed the route of the discussion by bringing a petition last year in 2018 which talks about the archaeological findings by the department in India.
Vinit Maurya, a social worker says that the issue isn’t about Hindus or Muslims but the issue is primarily about the remains in the land. He tells us that the digging done by the Department of Archaeology has found several remains which point out that there was a mandir, but nothing proves if there was a Ram mandir or not. These remains have to be protected and preserved by Government of India.
These archaeological diggings took place in 2002-2003 after direction was provided by High court. He has filed a writ petition on 6th March, 2018, asking the court to give away this holy land to the nation and not any religion. This petition is completely based on the archaeological findings done by the department. He being a local of a Ayodhya talks about the inconveniences caused to the people living there, there is patrolling by the CRPF, imposition of Section 144 and the wastage of money and resources to control the law and order of Ayodhya.
Poonam Kumari, the second social worker also from Ayodhyay talks about how the people of Faizabad and Ayodhya are honest and united people. They economically get adversely effected when the issue is heated in the country. She feels upset about the state of the people living in the city of Ayodhya who have to face issues regarding employment, foo unavailability and other basic needs. The people of the country are eagerly awaiting about the result.
