Ayodhya case: the governor of West Bengal urges people to maintain harmony

KOLKATA: The governor of West Bengal appealed to people on Friday to remain independent of the trial of Ram Janmbhoomi- Babri Masjid land dispute case in Ayodhya.

He is scheduled to deliver his verdict in the politically sensitive case on Saturday.

Dhankhar said the Supreme Court ruling is final in any matter and that everyone should follow it.

I call on people to accept the wholehearted judgment. This is the requirement of the rule of law. It is everyone's responsibility to ensure that community harmony is maintained regardless of the judgment, he told PTI.

All communities must present an example of harmony and brotherhood, the governor added.

The higher court is likely to pronounce a ruling at 10:30 a.m.

A 5-judge Constitution Bank, headed by the President of the Supreme Court, had reserved the ruling on October 16 after a 40-day marathon hearing.
