Appeal to Imams to ensure peace

Consequent to the Supreme Court giving the green signal for the High Court to deliver its verdict on the Ayodhya title suits, the All-India Organisation of Imams of Mosques (AIOIM) has called upon the “lakhs of Imams of mosques” all over the country to give a message of “peace, communal harmony and national integration” in their sermons before the Friday prayers.

A communication issued by the AIOIM appealed to the Imams to ensure that anti-social elements did not disturb peace: “This is our duty and moral responsibility.”

“Stay calm”

In a simultaneous appeal, the All-India Milli Council asked Muslims to stay calm and “not celebrate the judgment [in case of a favourable judgment] and not mourn it [in case of an adverse judgment].”

AIMC General Secretary Mohammad Manzoor Alam welcomed the Supreme Court's rejection of the plea to postpone the verdict and said: “There is no point in being afraid of justice. The people's faith in the judiciary would not be belied.”
