Katiyar to make 'revelations' about Babri demolition Dec 6

Malegaon: The Home Ministry in India on Friday asked all states to remain on high alert on December 6 - the 17th anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition. The Ministry also asked states to deploy security forces in sensitive places.


"It is possible that some misdirected elements may wish to disturb communal peace and harmony. Hence, all state governments have been advised to remain on high alert. Security forces will be deployed for maintaining law and order in sensitive places," the home ministry said here in a press statement.


The ministry said it appeals to all sections of the people to maintain communal peace and harmony ahead of the Babri razing anniversary on Dec 6.


"The year 2009 has been remarkably free of any communal conflict. All religious festivals were celebrated peacefully. It sincerely hopes that all sections of the people will heed this appeal and cooperate with the central government and the state governments to maintain communal peace and harmony," the statement added.


The Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, was demolished on December 6 in 1992, by Hindu right-wing groups. Justice Liberhan Commission formed immediately after the incident in its report tabled in the parliament last week had confirmed the involvement of BJP and Sangh Parivar leaders for the demolition.


The communal riots that followed the tragic incident had taken thousands of life. Every year since December 6, 1992, Indian Muslims stage protests condemning the incident and demanding for the reconstruction of the mosque as promised by then Prime Minister PV Nersimha Rao.


SP to organise minority conference Saturday

Meanwhile, the Samajwadi Party will organise a minority conference in Kanpur Saturday to discuss main problems of Muslims in the country, party spokesperson said.


"On the eve of the 17th anniversary of the demolition of the Babri Masjid, we have decided to hold the conference that will witness participation of prominent Muslim clerics and Ulemas," Samajwadi Party state spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary told reporters here.


"During the conference, leading clerics and Ulemas would have deliberations on the state of Muslims in the country, particularly in Uttar Pradesh, their problems, and suggest measures for the upliftment of the minority community," he added.


Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh, the party's MLA in Maharashtra Abu Azami, and a number of party leaders would attend the minority conference in Kanpur, some 80 km from Lucknow.


"We would also felicitate Azmi-ji at the conference for taking oath in national language despite being assaulted by MNS legislators inside the Maharashtra assembly," said Chaudhary.


""By taking oath in Hindi our MLA (Azmi) had not only shown patriotism, but also given a reply to those posing threat to unity and integrity of the country," he added.
