Welfare Party of India demands security to the minority citizens and to maintain Status Quo at the disputed site
New Delhi, 24 November 2018: WPI national president Dr SQR Ilyas in a press statement said, on the call of Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s ‘Dharm Sabha‘ Lakhs of karsevaks & workers from RSS, VHP, Shivsena and supporters from other Hindu right wing groups are marching towards Ayodhya and Faizabad to show strength and pressurize the BJP government just ahead of the Lok Sabha elections aiming to build Ram Mandir shouting slogans of ‘Mandir jaldi Banayenge’ thereby creating a tense atmosphere and fear psychosis among Muslim citizens residing there. Dr. Ilyas termed the deliberated attempts being made by the RSS led karsevaks is utterly threatening. Under such a situation, there arises a dire need of giving protection to the lives and properties of the peace loving residents in those cities, he demanded.
Dr. Ilyas reminded that in 1992 when Babri Masjid was demolished a similar situation prevailed with Lakhs of karsevaks going berserk and destroying lives and properties of thousands of Muslims as there was a complete breakdown of state’s law and order machinery. He demanded that such a bloody history should not be repeated and said that the Army should be called immediately to ensure peace and internal security.
Dr Ilyas, pointed out that the matter of mandir/masjid issue is subjudiced and the State should take immediate steps to ensure that the status quo of the disputed site be maintained at all cost.
He further sought immediate intervention of the Honorable Supreme Court to take Suo-moto cognizance of the situation there and act accordingly.
