The participants resolved to pass the following resolution in the Meeting:
This representative meeting realizes that for the stability and development of any country it’s vital to have peaceful environment, constitutional supremacy and rule of law.
In a multi-religious and multi-cultural country like India communal harmony and respect for others constitutional and religious freedom is a symbol of democracy and secularism. However the fascists and anarchists are trying to communalize the environment by inciting violence in different names.
In such a weird situation it indispensable to those peace-loving Indians who want the prosperity and stability of the country to come forward and fight against communal forces and try their best to establish the rule of law in the country.
In this context, the impact and consequences of the Supreme Court’s decision in the Babri Masjid case should be taken positively in the context of the overall progress and development of the country.
This representative meeting while appealing to maintain the rule of law wants to draw the attention of all Indians irrespective of creed and cast and urge them to honor the verdict of the Supreme Court in Babri Masjid case, whatsoever.
We also appeal to all countrymen to face the situation with patience and endurance and avoid any kind of provocation and incitement and also stick to peace and optimism whatever be the circumstances.
