Ayodhya verdict

“When knowledge ends faith in God starts”, says Ginetien. Faith is the only criterion to establish that God exists, though God does not require any proof of his evidence. At the same time there is no need to have faith in something which is a proven fact. Do we believe that the sum rises in the East’? Is it not the universal truth ? Is there any need to have faith in it ?
Now coming to the content, if the faith is substantiated by facts then a court of law cannot interfere in it”, says the Indian constitution. It took more than a century and a quarter (the Ram Mandir dispute actually started in 1885 AD) to establish legally that Lord Rama, the 8th incarnation of Lord Vishnu, was born at a place in Ayodhya where stood a mosque till Dec 6, 1992, built over a temple by foreign invader some 500 years ago, claims detailed report presented before the Apex Court of the country by Archeological Survey of India.
The Apex Court considered, the ASI findings as authentic final and binding upon all and accordingly delivered its verdict on Nov.9, 2019. Now the matter stands settled once for all, yet there are many who termed the SC judgement as being biased and overwhelmingly hostile towards the Muslim sentiments, little do they realise that the decision in favour of building a Ram temple at the disputed site did not come overnight and the litigants had to go through a tedious process of law in about 70 years and many of whom had lost their lives during this whole exercise.
The criticism of the antagonists is without reason or rhyme. It is time that all Indians stand united against any attempt to create a communal wedge between minority and majority and collectively contribute towards building a grand Ram temple at Ayodhya for Lord Rama who was described as Imam-E-Hind by Allama Iqbal.
