Lucknow: Clouds of uncertainty with regard to the communal atmosphere in Ayodhya have begun to form and are feared to get thicker as the first installments of stones meant to build a Sri Ram Temple there have arrived.

The loads came in two batches and are said to have been unloaded at Ramasevakapuram at Ayodhya, in area that comes under the VHP. Mahanta Nritya Gopal Das, president of Ram Janma Bhoomi Nyas Ayodhya, is said to have performed Shilapuja to these stones that have been collected from various parts of the country.

This followed six months after a determined Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) announced its intention to put together stones needed for the temple construction.

Expecting some disturbance of peace and harmony in the region owing to the arrival of the stones, the local police are already said to have begun taking precautionary measures to avoid any untoward incidents.

Providing information about the development, Gopal Das said that he believes that the time is ripe for building Sri Ram Temple at Ayodhya. “As if to support this idea, we have received stock of stones. In the coming days, we expect to receive increased quantity of stones. Signals emanating from Modi government are favourable for our plans to build the temple soon,” he explained.

Faizabad senior superintendent of police, Mohit Gupta, responding to the development, said that his department has kept a close eye on the developments and the police will surely act if they find that the situation might disrupt peace and communal harmony in the region.

It was at a public rally at Gurgaon, Haryana that Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader, Ashok Singhal, had spelt out his plan to begin a country-wide movement to collect stones for the building. “We need 2.25 lac cubic feet of stones for building Sri Ram Temple. At present, we have 1.25 lac cubic feet stones. We propose to collect remaining stones from across the country,” he had explained.

The Allahabad high court, in its September 30, 2010, verdict after several hearings in the case, had asked to divide the disputed property into three parts and hand over them to Hindus, Muslims, as well to a family of priests. Both the sections are fighting against this verdict in Supreme Court.

In the meanwhile, retired judge of Allahabad high court, Justice Palok Basu, has come up with a new proposal as per which both Sri Ram Mandir and mosque will coexist at the disputed site. He has also proposed that the mosque would not be known with Mughal emperor, Babur’s name.

It is gathered that over 7,000 Hindus and Muslims from Faizabad have given their nod to this proposal by affixing their signatures. Once the petition gets enough support, those who are backing this formula propose to place it before the Supreme Court, seeking its acceptance towards resolving the dispute.
