Factsheet: Timeline of the Ayodhya Dispute

Malegaon: Stating that the Allahabad High Court has shied away from settling a sensitive dispute, Arab News, the leading Saudi Arabian daily, in its editorial terms the Ayodhya judgment as a bewildering verdict. It, however, advised the Indian Muslims to refrain from any emotional response and suggested, it is time for them to move on.

"After an interminable wait of nearly 60 years that took India to the brink and back with thousands of innocent lives being lost, most of them Muslims, the 2-1 verdict has been disappointing and bit of a damp squib", the leading Saudi English daily wrote in its editorial.

 

"It has not just shocked the Muslims, the aggrieved party in this case with idols being placed in the Babri Mosque in 1949 and its demolition in 1992, but it has also surprised many legal luminaries", it added.

"The division of the land into three parts — two for Hindus, one for Muslims ­— and the conclusions drawn by the court are bewildering, to say the least", the paper wrote.

 

"Giving the Hindus control over the section where the now demolished mosque stood may give the impression to those who worked for the destruction of the mosque that they were after all justified in their actions", it said.

 

"While it is too early to go into the finer points of the judgment, which is certain to be challenged in the Supreme Court, you can’t help feeling that the judges were anxious not to be seen offending any side, especially the forces that have held the country to ransom for years over the issue", it said.

"Perhaps it’s time for India’s Muslims to move on.... They must not give another excuse to the Hindu extremists to rally themselves around another Muslim-bashing cause..... Any emotional response to the Ayodhya verdict could only give RSS-BJP-VHP combine a new lease of life", it said.

 

"In this connection, the statement of the Sunni Wakf Board that they are open to any negotiated settlement on the issue is to be welcomed", the paper said.
