Rul­ing ex­pected on dis­puted site

Los Angeles Times - - 9• 30•10 -

A court was to rule Thurs­day on whether Hin­dus or Mus­lims own a dis­puted re­li­gious site in north­ern In­dia, a judg­ment many fear could trig­ger an out­break of com­mu­nal ri­ot­ing.

The govern­ment has ap­pealed for calm af­ter the court in Ut­tar Pradesh state de­cides on the own­er­ship of the site of a 16th cen­tury mosque. The is­sue flared in 1992, trig­ger­ing some of In­dia’s dead­li­est ri­ot­ing.
