Views by Home Minister P Chitambaram:
As per home minister P Chitambaram has ensured that proper security majors are being taken. He expressed following views in press conference.
“I think India has moved on…especially, people born after 1992 have a different world view…the young recognise that the India story is more than a dispute about a place where one religious group is entitled to that place or another religious group….the India story is much bigger…the young recognize that the India story should not be in any way derailed by a dispute over a place. The main political parties have reposed their faith in the due process of law. Many other organizations connected with the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute have also affirmed that they would respect the judgement of the court and seek to advance their cause in accordance with the law. Many common citizens have also spoken or written in favors of a judicial resolution of the dispute. All this was a great advance over the position that the people took in the 1990s. Almost everybody now believes that the way to resolve this dispute is through judicial resolution…these is helpful signs that peace and harmony will prevail in the wake of the judgment. A judgment is not to pick winners or losers…it is merely a declaration of the correct facts and law as found by a court”
