Chennai, Nov 9 : Political parties in Tamil Nadu on Saturday gave a mixed reaction to the Supreme Court’s judgement in the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi land title case, with some welcoming it and some speaking against it.

The apex court on Saturday delivered its judgement in the long pending case whereby it ordered the Central government to form a trust to build and maintain a temple on the 2.77 acre land which was under dispute.

The court also ordered allotment of five acres of land at an alternate site to the Muslims for building a mosque.

In a statement issued here DMK President M.K. Stalin said the apex court has found a solution for a long pending dispute.

Stalin said he believes that the judgement will be accepted by all and will maintain communal harmony.

In a statement issued here on Saturday, the Indian Union of Muslim League (IUML) National President K.M. Kader Mohideen said there is no necessity now to deliberate on the pros and cons of the apex court’s judgement.

He said the need of the hour is to respect and accept the court judgement and take steps to implement the same.

On the other hand, the Manithaneya Makkal Katchi (MMK), another Muslim party, took a different stand on the issue.

“The Supreme Court’s verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land title case has opened a Pandora’s box as it was based on the people’s belief, and the heart burning judgement’ is full of contradictions,” M. H. Jawahirullah, President of MMK, told IANS.

He said the judgement has set a wrong precedent and may pave the way for such claims in other places like Mathura, Kashi.

“The Muslim community had faith in the country’s judicial system and had always approached the court in the Babri Masjid case. However, the Supreme Court judgement has disappointed us,” Jawahirullah said, adding the judgement was also full of contradictions.

He referred to the point in which the Supreme Court said the destruction of the Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992 was an illegal act. The apex court also said that no temple was demolished to build the Babri Masjid.

“On the whole it is a heart burning judgement which goes against the very idea of a secular India,” he said.

Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) President and Lok Sabha member Thol Thirumavalavan said the apex court decision seems to be a peace initiative and not an attempt to uphold justice.

Tweeting on the judgement Thirumavalavan said the order to allot five acres of land to Muslims is not an attempt to uphold justice but an attempt to bring about peace.

He also wondered why there was no separate trust for building and maintaining the mosque at the new place like the creation of a trust by the central government for building and running the Ram temple.

Thirumavalavan tweeted that based on the beliefs of the Hindus, assigning the entire disputed land to them shows political interference.

He said that in the interest of harmony in the country and in the community all should maintain peace.

The Tamil Nadu Unit of the Communist Party of India (CPI) urged all to respect the apex court’s decision and maintain peace.

Movie actor Rajinikanth said he respects the judgement and urged others to do the same.

Meanwhile the ruling AIADMK is yet to come out with its views on the verdict.

In the morning ahead of the verdict Chief Minister K.Palaniswami appealed to the religious and political leaders to extend their cooperation to keep the state peaceful.

Akhilesh Yadav

Lucknow/New Delhi, July 10 : The opposition parties on Friday slammed the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government over the encounter of dreaded gangster Vikas Dubey, while being brought back to the state from Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain.

Former Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav took to twitter and wrote, “Actually. his car has not overturned, but the government has been saved from turning over the secret.”

His remarks came soon after Dubey died on Friday morning after being critically injured in an alleged shootout with the STF officials on Friday morning near Kanpur. The gangster was shot when he reportedly tried to flee, following a road accident in which the vehicle he was travelling in overturned near Kanpur. Dubey was taken to the emergency ward of the Hallett Hospital. Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Kanpur Dinesh Kumar said that the doctors have confirmed the death of Vikas Dubey.

Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) leader Jayant Chaudhary also slammed the BJP government over the “encounter rule” in the state and urged all the judges to resign. “After Vikas Dubey”s encounter, all the judges of the country should resign. There is no need of court in BJP”s encounter rule,” Chaudhary said in a series of tweets. “All this drama has been created to save the real culprits of killing eight policemen,” the RLD leader said in another tweet.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Kumar Jha also criticised the Uttar Pradesh government over the encounter saying the “black truth” of the entire “syndicate” has also been “encountered” along with Dubey. “If the news of the Vikas Dubey death in the encounter is true, then accept that the black truth of the entire syndicate has also been encountered. The system has saved itself from being naked. How the story is so simple from yesterday”s visuals of Mahakal temple to the story till today morning. Proceed with this as the final truth (sic),” Jha tweeted.

According to reports, as the convoy bringing Dubey from Madhya Pradesh”s Ujjain reached the Bhauti area under the Barra police circle in Kanpur on Friday morning, the vehicle in which Vikas was seated, overturned after skidding on the road due to heavy rain.

Dubey, along with two other police personnel in the vehicle, was injured in the accident. As soon as the gangster was taken out of the vehicle, he allegedly snatched a pistol from the STF team and tried to fire at the police. He was fatally injured in retaliatory firing. Dubey received a bullet injury in the chest which proved fatal. Five members of the Dubey gang have been killed in police encounters over the past seven days.
