RSS hails court's refusal to delay Ayodhya verdict

September 17, 2010 17:36 IST

The Rashtriya Swayam sewak Sangh said the Allahabad High Court's refusal to defer the judgement in the 60-year-old Ayodhya case is a right decision as impediments were sought to be put in the judicial process to delay the verdict.

The court has done the right thing by dismissing the application seeking postponement of the verdict, RSS spokesperson Ram Madhav told reporters in New Delhi.

"This was an unnecessary attempt to delay the verdict," he told reporters commenting on the High Court's dismissal of the plea by Ramesh Chandra Tripathi.

Asked what efforts were being taken by RSS to maintain peace, he said, "we are a law abiding organisation and we will make all efforts to maintain peace."

Tipathi pleaded for deferring the September 24 judgement for working out an out-of-court amicable settlement of the issue.

The Special Bench, comprising Justice S U Khan , Justice D V Sharma and Justice Sudhir Agarwal, decided to impose a heavy fine which would be announced later though Justice Agarwal proposed a fine of Rs five lakh.
