Kolkata, Nov 9 (IANS) West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Saturday said the Supreme Court judgement in the Ayodhya dispute should not be looked as “victory or defeat” for anyone and appealed to all concerned to “wholeheartedly” accept it.
“I am happy that the honourable Supreme Court has decided an issue that was engaging attention of the whole country. The judgement should not be looked as victory or defeat for anyone. It should be wholeheartedly accepted and worked upon,” Dhankhar told the media on the sidelines of a programme here.
Emphasising that all Indians stand for unity and strength of the nation, the Governor said the Ayodhya verdict was not for one party or another.
“I would appeal to all sections of the society that after an indulgent hearing for several decades, the issue has come to be determined by the highest court of the largest democracy of the earth. And that judgement should be accepted by all,” he added.
The Supreme Court on Saturday gave the 2.77 acre disputed land in Ayodhya to the Hindus and asked the government to give alternate land to the Sunni Waqf Board, which was a party to the title suit.
In the unanimous judgement, the five-member bench directed the Centre to form within three months a trust, which will build a Ram temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya.
