16 Sep : Union Cabinet passed a resolution in its meeting today on the High Court judgement on the Ram-Janam Bhumi-Baabri Masjid title suit expected on 24.9.2010. Following is the text of the appeal:
“The High Court judgement on the Ram-Janam Bhumi-Baabri Masjid title suit is expected on 24.9.2010. The Judgment will be the outcome of a long judicial process.
It goes without saying that the judgement needs to be treated with the utmost respect. At the same time, we must remember the fact that the judgement, at this stage, is one step in the judicial process. The determination of the issues need not necessarily end with this judgment unless it is accepted by all parties. In case any of the parties feels that further judicial consideration is required, there are legal remedies available which could be resorted to.
Keeping this in mind, it is necessary for all sections of the people of India to maintain equanimity and tranquility in the aftermath of the judgment. There should be no attempt whatsoever made by any section of the people to provoke any other section or to indulge in any expression of emotion that would hurt the feelings of other people.
The Cabinet appeals to all the people of India to ensure that the delivery of the judgment is seen in its proper perspective as part of a judicial process. The Cabinet further appeals to all sections of society to maintain peace and order after the delivery of the judgment. It is important for all to ensure that the highest traditions of Indian culture and respect for all religions are fully maintained. India is firmly and resolutely on the path of inclusive growth. This is recognized all over the world. Nothing must be said or done and nothing must happen that may cause us to deviate from our goals and our objectives.
The Union Cabinet passed the above resolution at its meeting on 16.09.2010.”
