The Socialist Democratic Party of India (SDPI) cadre staged a demonstration condemning the stone laying ceremony in Ayodhya for Ram Temple on Wednesday.

The members called for stopping the works.

The protesters also slammed the participation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the ceremony and called it an assault on the secular character of the nation. They also condemned the organising of the ceremony on August 5, the day when Jammu and Kashmir was stripped of its special status under Article 370.

The protesters also demanded the restoration of internet services in the valley and also demanded that the abrogation of Article 370 be reversed. The SDPI also condemned the criminalisations of Muslim men under the Triple Talaq Act. The protests were held at Ram Nagar in Hosur and Palacodde in Dharmapuri.

In Tiruppur, SDPI members staged a demonstration at CTC Corner on Kangeyam Road. Tiruppur City Police said that nearly 150 members participated in the protest and a case was registered for violation of prohibitory orders under CrPC Section 144.

In Salem, SDPI members staged protests at various parts of the city.

Members of Makkalarasu Katchi claimed that Ayodhya land belongs to Buddhists and wanted construction activities to be stopped.
