Allahabad HC dismissed plea to offer namaz at disputed Ayodhya site

Sabrangindia 21 Dec 2018

Justices DK Arora and Alok Mathur of the Lucknow bench of the high court passed the order on the petition of Al-Rahman Trust, which had requested the court to give permission to offer namaz at the disputed site.


Allahabad HC
 
Lucknow: The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court rejected a petition seeking permission to offer namaz at the disputed site in Ayodhya on Thursday while imposing a fine of Rs. 5 lakh on the petitioner saying the appeal was filed for "cheap publicity".
 
Justices DK Arora and Alok Mathur of the Lucknow bench of the high court passed the order on the petition of Al-Rahman Trust, which had requested the court to give permission to offer namaz at the disputed site.
 
The court directed District Magistrate Faizabad to realise the fine amount if it is not deposited by the Trust.
 
The Supreme Court had on October 29 adjourned the Ram temple-Babri Masjid land dispute case to January. The court is hearing a batch of petitions challenging a 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict that ordered a three-way division of the land in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, on which the Babri Masjid stood before Hindutva activists demolished it on December 6, 1992.
 
The High Court divided the land equally between the Nirmohi Akhada, the Sunni Wakf Board and the representative for the deity, Ram Lalla, or the infant Ram. The clamour to build a Ram temple at the disputed site is rising in the extreme Hindutva factions.

Tales of Bonbibi: The Forest Goddess worshipped by Hindus and Muslims

In times like these, when the political unrest in our country is soaked in communal tension, tales of communal harmony where Hindus and Muslims have worshipped the same Gods and Goddesses since ages, need to be reiterated time and again. Bonbibi or 'Lady of the Forest' is one Goddess that the Hindus and Muslims of Sundarbans, in Bengal, have unanimously prayed to protect themselves from wild animals in the forest, as they ventured inside to collect wood, honey, crabs and fish, thus solidifying the religious syncretism of our country.
