It’s Time to Respect Judicial Process And Live In Peace: Bishop

E-mail Print PDF

altBELLARY, SEP. 29: The Allahabad High Court’s Lucknow bench will deliver the long awaited judgment in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suits on Thursday, Sep. 30.

There will be no ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ in the verdict; all Indians together need to make India a ‘winner’ by maintaining peace, order and harmony.

 

The country is guided by the constitution of India and for 63 years this great nation has been a ‘vibrant democracy’ through rule of law, in spite of many failures.

 

“I would, therefore, appeal to all the parties to the suits as well as the general public to exercise restraint and have recourse to legal process without resorting to violence.

 

India has bled enough in the past due to religious conflicts. It’s time to say ‘good bye’ to past prejudices and conflicts and look ahead.

 

There are enough problems to focus on in India: poverty, social evils, dreadful AIDS and environmental degradation. These are the evils which need to be fought unitedly by all people of good will. There is no scope for violence against each other in the name of religion.

 

While we respect each other’s faith and religious places of worship, we will work together to help all Indians to live in dignity and peace.

 

Only a peaceful India can guarantee dignity and prosperity to all its citizens. Violence and hatred will only drain it’s energy and scant resources.


In this sensitive time, the best thing would be to desist from making provocative statements and keep away from rumors.

By no means should we give any quarter to divisive forces. Our effort should be to uphold country’s religious pluralism and our unity in diversity.  May God the Father of all, bless this great nation and its 1.2 billion people!
