The Ayodhya Verdict and the Indian Mass Media

"The verdict of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad high court on the title suits related to the disputed site in Ayodhya makes you wonder whether anything straight can ever emerge from the crooked timber of the majoritarian mind."


"Among the factors that led them to do so, the most intriguing by far is the cachet of legality that they have bestowed on belief and faith. Both, we had assumed, naively as it turns out, had to be kept outside the ambit of the court. Here, judges weigh evidence rooted in incontrovertible facts, examine the pertinence of reasoned arguments and proceed to deliver a judgement that conforms, in letter and spirit, with the laws prevalent in the land. But by their very nature, faith and belief have no factual basis. They are above reason. And if push comes to shove, they aren't answerable to norms of legality laid down by mere mortals."

ALTHOUGH I HAVE DEEP ADMIRATION AND REGARDS FOR DILIP PADGAONKAR, ONE OF THE FINEST INDIAN INTELLECTUALS YET I AM SORRY TO SAY THAT THE ABOVE QUOTED TWO QUOTATIONS FROM DILIP'S ARTICLE SHOWS THAT DILIP PERHAPS WROTE THIS ARTICLE IN A HURRY WITHOUT BOTHERING TO EXAMINE THE ASI REPORT THAT HAS CLEARLY ESTABLISHED THE EXISTENCE OF A MANDIR PRIOR TO CONSTRUCTION OF MOSQUE BY BABAR AT AYODHYA.........!


"crooked timber of the majoritarian mind." - USE OF THESE UNFOUNDED BASELESS WORDS IS MOST UNFORTUNATE AND UNEXPECTED FROM A WELL-REASONE AND WELL-SEASONED SENIOR JOURNALIST OF THE HIGH STATURE OF DILIP PADGAONKAR...............!


"NEW DELHI: "In our view, the conclusion drawn by the ASI in the project accomplished within an extra-ordinary brief period and with such an excellence precision and perfection deserve commendation and appreciation instead of condemnation." — Justice Sudhir Agarwal. ..........................................................The ASI view that evidence pointed to the existence of a temple, forms the key material evidence relied upon by the court. Perhaps keeping in mind the criticism of ASI's findings, Justice Sudhir Agarwal and Justice D V Sharma in their comments have countered allegations of the report being influenced by powers that be.........."

NOW, THE ABOVE MENTIONED NEWS-ARTICLE ITSELF IN THE TIMES OF INDIA SHOWS CLEARLY THAT THE ALLAHABAD HIGH COURT BANCH HAD INDEED RELIED ON SCIENTIFIC EVEIDENCE PROVIDED BY THE ASI AND USED LEGAL PROCEDURES TO ESTABLISH THE FACT OF EXISTENCE OF THE RAM MANDIR AT DISPUTED SITE.........THIS ALSO PROVES TOTALLY WRONG THE ASSERTIONS BY INTELLECTUALS LIKE DILIP PADGAONKAR THAT THE LUCKNOW BENCH OF THE ALLAHABAD HIGH COURT HAD MERELY RELIED ON FAITH AND BELIEF AND NOT RELIED ON FACTS.......................THE TRUTHFULLY TRUE FACT IS THE HONOURABLE COURT INDEED HAD RELIED ON FACTS [ AS WE CAN BE SEE BY READING THE ABOVE QUOTED ARTICLE]................!


THE ABOVE QUOTED NEWS-ARTICLE ALSO PROVES TOTALLY WRONG THE POLITICIANS LIKE mulayam singh Yadav who are clearly trying to mislead the Indian Muslim Society by claiming falsely that the Indian Muslims have been cheated by the court........................


POLITICIANS LIKE mulayam singh Yadav FORGET THAT IN THIS AGE OF QUICK INFORMATION DISSEMINATION [ONLY 4 LAKH COMPUTERS EXISTED IN 1992, TODAY IT IS 40 MILLION OR 400 LAKH COMPUTERS IN INDIA - SHOWING EXTRAORDINARY CONNECTIVITY AMONGST INDIANS!], POLITICIANS LIKE mulayam singh Yadav CAN'T MAKE INDIAN MUSLIMS FOOL ANY MORE FOR THEIR VOTE-BANK POLITICS...................! Mulayam Singh's UNFORTUNATE STATEMENT shows clearly his cheap politics in such a hour of national importance when MAINTAINING PEACE is MOST IMPORTANT.....................................................!


"Apparently, some shia organisation has criticized the AIMPLB for approaching SC. They also announced Rs 15 Lakhs for the construction of the temple"


SHIA Muslims to donate 15 Lakh Rs. for RAM Mandir.

A NOBLE GESTURE INDEED FROM INDIAN SHIAS IF THIS INFORMATION IS CORRECT................!


SUCH A NOBLE GESTURE FROM SHIAS MUST BE WELCOMED WITH OPEN ARMS AND THIS OPPORTUNITY MUST BE USED TO INTEGRATE SHIAS SO DEEPLY AND PERMANENTLY WITH THE HINDUS THAT BOTH SHIAS AND HINDUS WORK TOGETHER TOWARDS MAKING MOTHER INDIA POWERFUL TO TAKE HER PLACE OF PRIDE IN THE WORLD....................THIS MUST ENSURE PERMANENT HARMONY AND PEACEFUL CO-EXISTENCE BETWEEN HINDUS AND MUSLIMS [ESPECIALLY SHIAS].......................!
