Press Trust of India  |  Lucknow 

The Babri Masjid Action Committee (BMAC) today called on people to observe the 25th anniversary of the demolition of the 16th-century mosque peacefully and hold special prayers for early resolution of the dispute.

BMAC convener Zafaryab Jilani said the anniversary should be observed peacefully like previous years and all memorandums addressed to the be handed over to the district magistrate.

Jilani, also a member of the All Muslim Personal Board, asked Muslims to hold special prayers for early resolution of the issue, with all cases being taken up on priority so that Muslims get the possession of the land.

Prayers should also be held for peace and harmony in the country, Jilani said in a statement.

He added that the memorandums - to be submitted to the district magistrate on December 6 - should also be sent to Prime Minister Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, demanding that the cases related to the matter be taken up at the earliest and strong action be initiated against anyone harming the communal atmosphere.

He said sit-ins could be held on the day but attention should be paid to ensure peace and amity.
