We are approaching you to express our deep shock and anguish over the demolition of the Babri Masjid on 6th December by Kar Sevaks organized by the BJP-VHP combine, and to seek your immediate intervention to restore the faith of our country. The participation of some Members of Parliament, either directly or indirectly, in the proceedings leading to the demolition is an extremely alarming development. We are also dismayed that the Government, despite several statements to the contrary, was unable to take adequate steps to protect the Mosque.
In the light of the possible implications of this catastrophic incident, we demand that the Government be directed:
We once again seek your immediate action.
