Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday said that whatever the decision comes in the Ayodhya case, the home ministry was ready and there would not be any law and order situation.
In an exclusive interview to India Today TV, Amit Shah said that he believed in the fabric of the country and that both the groups would accept the verdict of the Supreme Court.
“I believe both the groups would accept the Supreme Court’s decision with respect,” Amit Shah said.
Amit Shah also said, “Anyone can give a statement here or there, but by and large, the people will accept Supreme Court’s verict.”
When asked whether the home ministry is expecting a violent backlash from the opposing groups after the verdict, Amit Shah said, “The country does not run on suspicions.”
“The solution will be peaceful,” Amit Shah added.
When asked whether he thought the verdict would be in favour of the Ram temple, Amit Shah said, “I cannot talk to judges. And I should not talk to them either so I cannot say anything on the judgement.”
Amit Shah also said, “The Supreme Court is going to five a final verdict this time as the apex court has said it time and again that they intend to finish the matter by October 17.”
When asked why there was such urgency on the matter, Amit Shah said that the Ayodhya case was the oldest pending case in the country and needed to be resolved.
“Ayodhya dispute is the country’s oldest case. It is an injustice that the case has not reached a verdict yet,” Amit Shah said.
“If the Supreme Court and the CJI are taking up the Ayodhya case on a daily basis, it is good as it the oldest case in the country,” Amit Shah added.
Prohibitory orders under section 144 have been clamped in Ayodhya as the Supreme Court’s revised deadline for wrapping up the proceedings in the sensitive Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case approaches.
