Hyderabad peaceful on Babri Masjid demolition anniversary

Press Trust of India  |  Hyderabad 

The city remained peaceful today, the 25th anniversary of Babri Masjid demolition, even as the police foiled an attempt by an organisation to hold protest.

Police foiled an attempt by the members of city-based organisation Darsgah Jihad-O-Shahadat (DJS) to hold protest and took over 20 activists into preventive custody, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (South Zone) K Babu Rao said.

"The day passed off peacefully," he said.

At some locations, shops and business establishments downed shutters voluntarily after certain organisations called for observing a 'Black Day' to mark the anniversary.

Majlis Bachao Tehreek (MBT) submitted a memorandum to Governor E S L Narasimhan, addressed to President of India, demanding reconstruction of the Babri Masjid at its original site in Ayodhya.

The city police had made tight security arrangements and conducted a flag march in a few locations last evening.

The police have clamped prohibitory orders till December 7, banning processions, rallies, dharna and public meetings, to ensure peace in the state capital.
