The Court verdict on Babri Masjid issue is due on September 24.
Certain miscreants in the society may cause disruption of peace in post-verdict era. The recent shooting in front of Jama Masjid is a cause of concern. In case the judgment is not up to their expectations, they may start violence.
In wake of potential threat from such anti-social elements, we suggest the following:
a. Kindly circulate the message in all nationalist and peace-loving organizations and their prominent leaders from all communities to take preventive measures and be prepared for any potential eventualities.
b. Ensure that the police and security forces are put on alert by peace-loving people if they find something suspicious. Kindly cooperate with these forces to ensure peace and do not take law in your own hands.
c. Kindly spread this news far and wide and among prominent people of society.
d. Do not assume safety merely because your area has not been communally sensitive in past. Group together with like-minded organizations and peace-loving people of all communities to plan for safety. Make best use of police and other safety mechanisms. Cooperate with law enforcers.
e. Do not get instigated if provoked and maintain peace and harmony. Be prepared with your own security, keep the administration alert and ensure that lawlessness is not promoted.
f. Please remember that our fight is against terrorists and not people from any community in general. We should have spirit of brotherhood across all communities to ensure peace.
g. There have been patriots like Ashfaqullah and Abdul Hamid among Muslims if there have been perverts like Babur, Osama and Kasab. Similarly, there have been legends like Shivaji and Rana Pratap among Hindus but also renegades like Jaichand and Man Singh. So we should not judge a person by his birth, religion or name, but only by his patriotism and deeds. Such maturity is essential to maintain peace.
h. Maintain brotherhood across all communities.
Some of the sensitive areas from where reports have come are UP, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal and Maharashtra.
We request your contribution in spreading this information far and wide and especially among influential people and organizations. We request members of all communities who believe in peaceful coexistence to support in preventing any untoward events in post verdict era by uniting together.
The date is September 24. Let us work together to thwart the evil designs of terrorists and their perpetrators and ensure peaceful environment.
PLEASE CIRCULATE FAR AND WIDE AND TO ALL PROMINENT PEOPLE LIKE POLITICIANS, LEADERS OF ORGANIZATIONS, PEACE BROKERS OF ALL COMMUNITIES AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT YOU CAN. LET US MAINTAIN PEACE.
