Ayodhya verdict: PC hails 'dignified' response

New Delhi, Oct 1: As India chose to embrace peace in the aftermath of the Ayodhya verdict, Home Minister P Chidambaram hailed the country's response as "dignified".

"Response to Ayodhya verdict has been dignified," Chidambaram said.

Even though the government is very pleased by the people's response, there are apprehensions about politics over the issue, said Chidambaram.

His statement came in the backdrop of the first of such an attempt to politicise the Ayodhya verdict as Samajwadi Party chief, Mulayam Singh Yadav said that the Muslims were feeling "cheated" by the verdict and charged the HC of putting "faith" before law.

The Home Minister also clarified that the Sep 30 Allahabad High Court verdict had nothing to do with the Dec 6, 1992 Babri Masjid demolition, which he said remains a "criminal act".

"The demolition of Babri Masjid remains a criminal act and therefore yesterday's judgement in no way interferes with that case," he stressed.
