Condemnable remarks


The remarks of Uttar Pradesh Minister Mukut Bihari Verma, that the construction of Ram temple is “our” (BJP’s) resolve and that the Supreme Court, judiciary and the country are all “ours” show the depth of arrogance of the ruling party’s members (Front page, “Ayodhya: SC frowns on U.P. Minister’s remarks,” Sept. 13). This distasteful statement was made not by an ordinary BJP member, but by a Minister. The Supreme Court did the right thing in condemning the comment. However, considering that some Hindutva activists are reportedly sending threatening messages to advocate Rajeev Dhavan, who is appearing for the Waqf Board, one doubts whether the court will be able to deliver justice without fear or favour.
