Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday addressed a mega rally in Nashik and urged the people opining on the issue of Ayodhya-Ram Mandir dispute to have faith in the Supreme Court to give a clear decision on the matter. Addressing the rally, PM Modi spoke about PM Modi said that certain 'bayan bahadur' or outspoke people have started speaking on the Ram Mandir matter. Urging them to have faith in the Supreme Court and judiciary, PM Modi further stated that SC is listening to both parties in the Ayodhya land dispute during the hearing in the matter.
"In the last 2-3 weeks, some 'bayan bahadur', some outspoken people have started speaking on Ram temple. It is important for people to have faith in the Supreme Court. When the matter is going on in the Supreme Court, both parties are putting in their perspectives, SC is consistently taking out time to listen to both the sides, then I am surprised when certain people have problem with it. Why are they creating hurdles for the entire matter? We must have faith in the Supreme Court. We must have faith in the Constitution given by Baba Saheb Ambedkar. We must have faith in the judiciary. From Nashik, I would like to urge those people questioning to have faith in the law and order of the country in the name of Lord Ram," PM Modi said in Nashik.
PM Modi's statements have come in the light of remarks made by several political leaders in the backdrop of the developments in the Ayodhya land dispute matter in the Supreme Court. On Wednesday the top court paved the way for the mediation panel to resume talks regarding the Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute. Amid these developments, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray also told his party leaders to be prepared for building Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. On the contrary, AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi stated that it is up to the Supreme Court to decide the hearing and give the judgment in the matter.
Hearing the Ram-Janmabhoomi Babri Masjid land dispute case on Wednesday, the Supreme Court bench led by CJI Ranjan Gogoi said that it wants day-to-day hearings in the case to be concluded by October 18. He also said the parties in the case can amicably resolve the matter through mediation if they want to do so. The bench added it has received a letter from former apex court judge F. M. I. Kalifulla, who was heading the three-member mediation panel, saying some parties have written to him for the resumption of the mediation process.
