NEW DELHI: National Commission for Minorities chief Ghayorul Hasan Rizvi on Sunday said Ram temple must be built in Ayodhya so that Muslims can live peacefully and respectfully.
Rizvi also stressed that the dispute should be resolved soon to help strengthen ties between communities.
Some Muslim organisations had sought the panel’s intervention in the Ayodhya title suit case, Rizvi said.
The commission in its November 14 meeting will decide whether to approach the Supreme Court for an early hearing on the matter or not, he added.
“The National Minority Welfare Organisation and some other outfits have sent us reports that the Muslim community in the country is living in fear,” Rizvi said.
“They have urged the commission to take an initiative to improve the current atmosphere,” he added.
“During the November 14 meeting, we will hold discussions on the matter. But, as it is sub-judice, we can only urge the Apex Court for an early hearing,” he said. (AGENCIES)
