Amid heavy security arrangements in Faizabad and Ayodhya, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the Bajrang Dal celebrated 'Shaurya Diwas' (Day of Valour) while Muslim outfits observed 'Yaum e Gham' (Day of sorrow) to mark 25 years of Babri Masjid demolition.

The VHP also held functions in different parts of the state. In Ayodhya, chairman of Sriram Janmbhoomi Nyas, Mahant Nritya Gopaldas said that a temple has already been made in Ayodhya and only giving it a grand structure was required.

Speaking at "Shaurya Sankalp Sabha" organised at the Karsewak Puram in Ayodhya, the Mahant claimed that the atmosphere was conducive for construction of Ram temple and hoped that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will find a way on the basis of available evidences and the faith of crores of Ram devotees.

Stressing that he respects the court, Gopaldas said that the court too should factor in the demand of crores of Hindus.

Muslim outfits, on the other hand, observed the day as 'yaum-e-gham' and on the call of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB).

AIMPLB executive member Maulana Khalid Rashid Farangimahli submitted a memorandum to Lucknow District Magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma, which was addressed to the prime minister.

Recalling the incident when the structure was pulled down by "anti-socials and communally surcharged people" 25 years ago, the memorandum regretted that those responsible for it were still moving around freely, Farangimahli said.

It has also been stated that the CBI should be directed for prompt disposal of all the cases regarding the demolition going on in the courts of Lucknow and proper punishment to all those involved, he said. He said that a demand for lodging of cases against those held responsible for the demolition in the Librahan Commission report has also been sought through the memorandum.
