Let's move on, says GenX

“Right now Brand India has taken a beating thanks to the people who have 'played' with the Commonwealth Games, so raking up an issue like Ayodhya which is decades-old is really irrelevant. This generation wants to move on and focus on education and their future, not dwell on the past,” says Priyanka Saligram, a media professional.

Many youngsters liked the judgment as it reflected the opinion of young India. "If it went in favour of any particular group, it would have been another disaster and I guess young India is mature enough to think beyond politics in religion," says Satavisa Biswas, a communications professional.

However, a few suspect that the matter will not end with the judgment. “It's time to move on. This solution was devised way back in 1992, but would be accepted this time only because a court has said so. The matter will not end here. It is  going to be decided by the Supreme Court and it’s better that way because both the sides are unwilling to come to any understanding,”  said Aamir Khan, a law student.

Lack of clarity about the judgment left several people who were glued to their TV sets from the morning confused and irked.

"But the three-way split doesn't matter, it could have been all given to one of 50 parties. We need to move onto more important things that are current and affect us on a daily basis," says Karthik Ponnappa, software professional.

Some members of the younger generation also offered optimal solution for the dispute. “Given that this is primarily a title dispute, an optimal solution would be for the government to acquire the entire property and I believe it did so through an ordinance earlier. It could then proclaim the site as a site of communal harmony and go on to build a temple, mosque, church, gurudwara .where people of all faiths can congregate and worship.

“This would have engendered communal harmony and set an example for the rest of the world,” says Shamnad Basheer, an alumnus of National Law School of India University.
