Citizens appeal for peace, condemn attack on the Ram Mandir
July 5, 2005:We the undersigned condemn very strongly the attack on the Ram Mandir at Ayodhya that took place this afternoon. Any incident likely to hurt religious or any other sentiments of anyone must be considered despicable.
Shri L. K. Advani, the President of BJP, has called for a Bharat Bandh to express his anguish against this act. At times like this, one needs to keep calm and appeal to the nation to maintain peace. Only then can law and order be maintained in the country. But we are sad to note that this is not the case.
And so, with all humility, we appeal to the people of Gujarat to maintain peace and amity and ensure that relief operations to those affected by the present deluge does not get adversely affected in any way. It is worth noting that an organization like Hizbul Mujaheeddin has also condemned this attack. Our PM too has ordered appropriate action and so we need to maintain peace and harmony.
