Ayodhya case: IUML calls for peace, harmony

In a statement issued in Malappuram, IUML state president Pankkad Sayyid Hyderali Shihab Thangal said it was important to keep self restraint and refrain from doing anything that would mar social and inter-religious amity.

Though the long-drawn dispute got complicated with the demolition of the Babri masjid in 1992, Kerala had then set a model of the entire nation by not doing anything that would mar social peace and communal amity, the League supremo said.

When certain qurters sought to draw the issue on to the street, IUML had taken an avowed stand that the dispute should be left to the decision of the judiciary as that was the only practical and constitutional method, Thangal said.

Each citizen was duty bound to accept the verdict as part of the process of law and justice. If any section felt that justice was not done, they still had opportunity to approach the higher court, he said.

The need of the hour, however, was that everyone should take utmost care to avoid hurting the sentiments of brethern from other religions while making individual or organisational comments on the verdict,Thangal said.

Jamaath-e-Islami Kerala chief T Arif Ali said both sides involved in the dispute should be ready to accept the verdict.

Echoing similar sentiments, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said all sections of the scociety should be prepared to accept the verdict, whatever it might be.

Kerala had been a role model for communal harmony and it was the duty of every citizen to preserve its tradition at this hour, PDP working Chairman Poonthura Siraj said in a statement.

Smastha Kerala Jam Iyyathul Ulema urged the members of the society not to indulge in any word or deed that would create hate and enmity among different sections.
