Student organisations in Karnataka welcome SC verdict on Ayodhya
The student organisations from the state of Karnataka welcomed the Ayodhya verdict which was delivered today and they said that it is more important not to disrupt the peace of the country
Student organisations in Karnataka have welcomed the verdict delivered by the Supreme Court on the Ayodhya issue. The five-judge bench stated that the entire 2.77-acre land will be given to the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas and the government must form a trust to monitor the construction of the temple. And the Sunni Waqf Board will be given a separate five acres land to build a masjid. The student leaders believe that this will be the final decision and expect development in other sectors instead of building religious monuments.
"We welcome the decision of the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court bench has obviously studied this case carefully and produced the verdict in the interest of common people. There is no question of inequality as they have mentioned that the Sunni Waqf Board will be allocated five acres of land to build a masjid. Now, it is in the hands of the central government to allocate land within the time frame and in the hands of people to maintain peace," said Gururaj Desai, Chief Secretary, Student Federation of India, Karnataka. "As a part of our work in the state, we will be going to different schools and colleges on Monday to create awareness about the same subject, maintaining peace and unity. We will also be giving a band of unity to the students to symbolise the same," he added.
Basavaraj Pujar, the Secretary of the DFYI, Karnataka said that while the decision of the Supreme Court is important, maintaining the same peace and unity in future is equally important. "Now that the verdict is out, let this communal violence end. Let's look forward to the development of this country in terms of education, employment and much more rather than fighting in the name of religion," he added.
Sachin Mitra, Sports Secretary, St Joseph's Evening College did not agree though. "I don't think that the verdict given is a fair one. This issue will prolong for more years. In order to stop this fight between two religions, let the government build a school and a hospital that can actually serve good purpose. Because there are a lot of temples and mosques across India," added Mitra.
"Let this be the end of the issue and we look for developments in other sectors other than building religious monuments," said Keerthi Ganesh, General Secretary, NSUI, Karnataka.
