The BJP mobs destroyed a mosque, and the massacred hundreds of Muslims around Bharat. All for an election victory–which they got. Mob vendetta cannot be allowed to stand. Finally some sense of sanity from Bharat. After the devastating and erroneous verdict that came out of the High Court, the Supreme Court’s stay order on the Babri Masjid issue has brought back some credibility to the Bharati judicial system. The High Court judgment was so flawed that it did not pass the smell test. Something was fishy–and the Supreme Court agreed. How could a court, any court adjudicate a partition of a property, when it was not even asked for by any of the three parties.

The Supreme Court verdict is a breath of fresh air. The question is, can it stand up to the mobocracy that has been ramrodding (no pun intended) the will of a tiny minority and creating the mischief.

A three-judge special bench of the Allahabad High Court comprising Justice S.U. Khan, Justice D.V. Sharma and Justice Sudhir Agarwal were insane. We wrote about it on  The High Court was asked to answer three questions:

1) Was a Hindu God born in Ayodhya? Amazingly the High Court answered it that yes a Hindu God Ram was born in Ayodhya 900,000 years ago, at the exact spot of the Babri masjid. Never mind the fact that the ice age melted in 600o BC and that is when civilization started–in warm areas of the world like Greece, Italy, China and Pakistan. Never mind the fact that Bharat was like Antarctica for thousands of years.

2) The High Court was asked if the temple existed on the spot. The High Court found that the temple indeed did exist, even though cow-bones were found below the masjid, and several animals were found on the site, along with various other structures. The Gangetic plain is graveyard of civilizations. Every layer below the ground has a period of history buried beneath. The question which was not answered was was there a Buddhist vihara or monastery at the spot which is claimed as the Ramjanmabhoomi?

3) The High Court was asked if the masjid existed on the spot. The third question is; was the Babri Masjid built in accordance with the tenets of Islam?Astonishingly the court could not answer the question. Mughal Narratives did not mention any destruction of the temple.

The High Court of India had directed that the Babri Masjid land of 2.77 acres at the Babri Masjid site  be divided equally among Hindus, Muslims and Nirmohi Akhara, –the three parties to the suit. At the start of the Supreme Cout proceedings, the Bench asked if any of the parties was in favor of the High Court’s verdict. Not surprisingly  none of them supported the judgement.

“At least there is unanimity on it,” the Bench remarked.

The appeals filed by various Hindu and Muslim religious organisations pertained to only 2.77 acres of disputed land, the Supreme court Bench  ordered status quo on the 67 acres of land adjacent to the disputed site.

After the demolition of the masjid on December 6, 1992, the demonstrators created a makeshift temple. On January 7, 1993, the Congress government enacted the Ayodhya Act 1993 which preserved the status quo of the destroyed mosque and limited prayer on the disputed site.

The Sunni Waqf Board is scared now and its counsel Zafaryab Jilani said, “We are satisfied with today’s order of the Supreme Court… This will help in maintaining peaceful position in the country.”

Looking at the 67 acres would help resolve the issue. The best solution is the construction of a grand mosque and temple with access to large gardens. This way the Hindus and the Muslims can pray in their own worship areas. The illegal destruction fot he mosque has to be reversed and declared illegitimate. There is a solution and the Supreme Court’s verdict is a step in the right direction.
