The article “Young, Muslim and reflecting on Ayodhya” (Editorial page, Oct. 8) was inspiring. Gone are the days when people were swayed by communal politics. Times are changing and today's generation is very different. Perhaps those who have experienced communal disharmony will be aware of the pain and insecurities of those times. Patterns in the last general elections and even State polls indicate a changing mindset. We want peace. I personally want the land to be handed over to government to build a museum, reflecting our rich cultural heritage. It will reflect the image of India as being secular in the true sense.
There have been a number of letters on the Ayodhya verdict and many are inspiring in the way they have tried to offer suggestions to solve the issue. The act of handing over the land in a spirit of reconciliation will serve as an inspiration for generations to come. Such an act will be ever remembered because it will shed true light and meaning on religion by choosing to let peace and love triumph over personal gains. But how long will it be before India exhibits such levels of maturity?
