NCP supremo Sharad Pawar on Saturday reacted to the Supreme Court's prolonged judgement on the Ayodhya land dispute by saying that everyone should accept the verdict. He appealed to people of the country maintain peace and unity and also said that the decision will not affect Maharashtra politics in any capacity. The Supreme Court bench led by CJI Ranjan Gogoi pronounced that the disputed land will be given to Hindus to construct a temple whereas a separate 5-acre land in the prominent and suitable area will be given to the Muslims for construction of a mosque.
NCP chief Sharad Pawar while speaking to the media said, "I appeal everyone to maintain peace and unity and accept the Supreme Court verdict. Someone might want to go to 'mandir' to pray and some may want to go to a mosque to offer namaz, it is their personal choice but everyone should maintain peace and respect the decision that has arisen from this dispute. Everyone must thrive to strengthen the brotherhood in the society." Pawar added," I do not think that this will affect Maharashtra politics in any capacity. In fact, I feel within two or three days people will forget this subject. The imposition of Section 144 is not just for one state, it is for the good of the entire country. It is a precautionary measure by the government and there is nothing wrong in it, it is their duty."
सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने आज अयोध्या विवाद पर अपना अंतिम फैसला सुनाया है। मैं और हमारी पार्टी इस निर्णय का सम्मान करते है। उम्मीद है कि सभी राजनीतिक दल और धार्मिक संगठन इस फैसले का आदर करेंगे।— Sharad Pawar (@PawarSpeaks) November 9, 2019
Pronouncing the landmark judgment in the Ayodhya dispute case, the Supreme Court on Saturday, delivered a unanimous judgment in the title suit of the disputed area awarding it to the Hindu parties for the construction of a temple. It also directed the Centre to come up with a scheme within three months to set up a trust which will hand over the outer courtyard and inner courtyard of the site for construction of a temple. Apart from this, the SC stated that an alternate land of 5 acres is to be allotted to Muslims for the liberty of constructing a mosque, either by the central govt or the State govt, in a suitable and prominent place in Ayodhya. CJI Ranjan Gogoi, while delivering the unanimous judgment, dismissed the claims of the Sunni Central Waqf Board and the Nirmohi Akhara. He also termed that the three-way division of the disputed land by the Allahabad HC in its 2010 verdict is wrong.
