In context of worsening situation in Ayodhya and adjoining regions due to communal and provocative moves spearheaded by RSS, VHP and other Hindutva outfits, Popular Front of India chairman E Abubacker sought urgent intervention of President of India and Supreme Court Chief Justice through messages sent to both today.
He invited their attention to media reports that a warlike situation is being deliberately created by frenzied mobs brought in from outside. This situation has put the local Muslim population in panic and under threat of insecurity; thousands of people already fled from the city. He reminded that a similar scenario prevailed prior to the destruction of Babri Masjid in December 1992.
The letter by Popular Front chairman pointed out that since all these nefarious activities seem to enjoy political support, the protection of the site under litigation and security of the minority population could be accomplished only through immediate and effective intervention of the President of India and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
