Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Saturday appealed to the people to excercise restriant in their reaction to the Supreme court verdict in the Ayodhya land dispute case and not to disrupt the state’s harmony.
“We will not allow any untoward incidents to take place and police was on high alert”, Vijayan told reporters soon after the historic verdict was delivered. “The judgement has come on a matter which had caused a lot of bloodshed in this country.
The court has confirmed that installing the Ram idol and demolition of Babri Masjid was illegal,” he noted. Recalling the violence that broke out across the country following Babri Masjid’s demolition, Vijayan said, with this verdict, the legal issues with relation to the land dispute have come to a conclusion.
“I would like to appeal to all to show restraint in their reactions to the apex court order. The reactions must not hamper the peaceful life of people. No response should be made to disrupt the harmony of the state”, he said.
