Ahead of the verdict in the Ayodhya case, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has decided to open a dialogue with professionals from the Muslim community. Earlier on Tuesday, November 5, the BJP and RSS had chaired a meeting with the community's clerics, academics and prominent persons was organised, stressing on maintaining social harmony and unity. Apart from this, the RSS team has planned interaction with educated youths and professionals from various walks of life. The Supreme Court is likely to deliver its verdict on the Ayodhya case on November 17.
The event is slated to take place on November 8 at the Nehru Memorial in Delhi, with the RSS team functionaries Krishna Gopal and Ram Lal expected to address the professionals at the event.
"The agenda of the meet is the court's verdict in the Ayodhya case and to maintain harmony after it is delivered," said a senior RSS leader involved in the process. According to a senior member of the team, various NGOs and professional bodies were contacted to reach out to the professionals from the minority community and then invitations were sent out. "A group of 70 to 80 professionals would be participating in this interaction with professionals from the community. The group consists of engineers, professors, doctors and social activists," added the leader.
The members of the RSS on Wednesday took a call to approach leaders across the political spectrum in its effort to promote harmony. Further giving details about the same, the leader said,
"Not many people are following religious leaders. There may be many who spend too much time on social media. We all should avoid responding to fake and instigating messages if there would be any. We know these professionals too would not want peace to be disturbed. We are reaching out to them. It's a continuous process till verdict comes. We need to be prepared to accept it amicably."
Keeping in mind the potential hotspots that could either be a site for any violence or could be used to hide explosives, the officials have covered aspects like security at platforms, railway stations, yard, parking space, bridges and tunnels as well as production units and workshops. The Railway Protection Force advisory has said that a close watch should be kept on all religious structures near railway stations or within its premises as they may become a 'flashpoints' in case tempers run high.
