The deferring of the Ram Janmabhumi Supreme court’s hearing for February 8th by the Apex court due the heated arguments of the senior advocate Kapil Sibal fighting the matter on behalf of the Sunni Vaqf Board requesting the court to defer the matter till the aftermath of 2019 general elections is really a matter of great disappointment.
Senior advocate Kapil Sibbal has argued that since the matter has been deliberately chosen to be heard on the day of the 25th anniversary and the BJP government at the centre wanted to exploit it politically for the 2019 general elections for alleged polarisation of Hindu votes in the name of Ram Temple , it would not be in the interest of justice to resolve the issue before the year 2019 and should therefore be kept in abeyance till the national elections of 2019 are held.
Now, the point is if the honourable Apex court goes by the advice of Sr. advocate Kapil Sibbal appearing on behalf of Sunni Waqf Board looking after the Babri Masjid interest would it not amount to Congress polarising the miniority votes as the former is accusing the ruling party at the centre of polarising the majority sentiments i.e. the hindu votes. Everybody know that Ram Janma Bhumi, Babri Masjid issue is purely a religious matter having political overtones, implications and ramifications and the controversy primarily is more than hundred year old. Both Hindus and Muslims are not ready to sacrifice either’s interest. It was during the tenure of late Rajiv Gandhi that the locks of Ram Lala temple/ Babri Masjid were opened and therefore the pandora’s box.
The Supreme court of India is currently hearing the 13 clubbed petitions filed by various organisations/ people/ parties against the judgement of Allahabad High Court in which all the three parties i.e. the Nirmohi Akhara, the Sunni Wakf Board and the Ram Lalla diety represented by the VHP were allocated equal measurement of 2.77 acre land of the disputed site. It sounds ridiculous that the BJP as well as the Congress, the main contending parties in the matter are trying to derive political capital out of this vexed issue but do not seem to be earnestly interested to resolve it amicably, once for all.
The matter is though currently subjudiced but maximum efforts are being made by both BJP and Congress to ensure that the majority or minority communities are misled in the name of temple mosque issue and maximum political advantage is derived out of it by keeping it delayed inordinatedly .
After the arbitrary demolition of Babri Masjid on 6th December 1992, the country had witnessed umpteen number of riots killing hundreds of thousands of innocents from both the communities and creating an atmosphere of communal poision all over the country which has absolutely polluted the communal fabric of the country.
The appeasement of the majority and minority community is on a full swing by every political party and they are the common people who actually suffer when riots occur in the name of these religion oriented imbroglios such as Ram Mandir and Babri Masjid issues’. The time is ripe now that the Supreme Court of India should expedite the hearings on this vexed matter and deliver its hstoric judgement at the earliest to close this topic once for all in such a way that both the majority and minority communities are satisfied and their religious and community feelings are not hurt.
The more this complicated issue would be allowed to drag on, more will widen the disparity and repulsion between the minorities and the majority communities of the country and the political leaders would leave no stone unturned to exploit the situation to their respective advantages thinking little for the nation’s welfare, well being and harmony as is going on since 6th December, 1992 the black day of the Indian history. Judicial expediency and final delivery of judgement is the only solution to this vexed issue, now. What do you say friends?
