In light of the Babri Masjid judgment next Friday, the Maharashtra Federation of minorities NGOs has appealed to all Muslim youth to keep peace and not be influenced by external parties.

The federation said that if the judgment is against Muslims then they would accept it as they respect the Indian judiciary and abide by it. If the judgment is in favour of Muslims then they have appealed people not to come out on the street to celebrate the victory. They also said that they expected the same from the Hindu community.

“We know that Muslims won’t cause any problems whatever the judgment may be but we cannot talk about the outsiders who will try to provoke the Muslims to cause riots. We would like to appeal to everybody to keep faith in the judiciary and accept its decision. If any community feels that they have been wronged they can always appeal for further legal action.” M. Burhanuddin Qasmi, director of Markazul Ma’arif education and research center.

The federation also made a point that Commonwealth Games are coming up. The whole world has eyes over us. Indians all together shouldn’t send any wrong message to the world by showing disputes within. The federation of minority’s NGO’s Maharashtra is a federation which includes more than 100 NGO’s related to education, communities and other social issues.
