Ay­o­d­hya

FrontLine - - LETTERS -

NEI­THER Hin­dus nor Mus­lims wanted to pray at the dis­puted site in Ay­o­d­hya un­til the de­mo­li­tion of the mosque on De­cem­ber 6, 1992 (Cover Story, De­cem­ber 7). Just be­cause there is a Hindu ma­jor­ity in In­dia, some po­lit­i­cal par­ties and Hindu or­gan­i­sa­tions have made Ram tem­ple a po­lit­i­cal is­sue. They are well aware that In­dia is a sec­u­lar democ­racy with a rich her­itage that in­cludes dif­fer­ent faiths.

But it is sad that these po­lit­i­cal par­ties want to earn po­lit­i­cal mileage out of the Ay­o­d­hya is­sue. One ap­peals to these po­lit­i­cal par­ties to re­con­sider their de­mand for a Ram tem­ple and to pri­ori­tise find­ing so­lu­tions to the many prob­lems the coun­try faces.
