Lucknow: Ayodhya saints today welcomed the Supreme Court's decision to issue notices to the Centre and the Uttar Pradesh government on a petition seeking removal of ''unnecessary restrictions'' at the disputed site where Babri Masjid was standing till December 6, 1992 before it was demolished by the Hindu right wing groups.
Welcoming the directive, Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad chief and mahant of Hanumangarhi temple in Ayodhya Gyan Das said the judiciary would certainly give positive judgment on the issue.
He said 'devotees' have to suffer several problems to have a 'darshan of Ramlala' and the apex court should see into it before passing any judgement.
The mahant also appreciated the move of Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy who files the petition in support of the Hindu devotees.
However, Babri Masjid Action Committee (BMAC) convenor Zafaryeb Jilani said serving such notices was not a new thing.
''Such notices had been served in the past also,'' he commented.
Jilani said on February 23, 1996, the Allahabad High Court had given several relaxation to the devotees visiting Ayodhya against which Babri Masjid Action Committee (BMAC) had moved the higher judiciary. The apex court had stayed the court decision on May 10, 1996 which was still continuing.
Dr Swamy had contended that unnecessary restrictions in the name of security, being imposed on the devotees at the make-shift temple, were making it virtually impossible for them to offer prayers. The petitioner said the ''Garbh Grih'' (sanctum sanctorum) has been placed under bulletproof cover and the height of boundary wall raised. Only reasonable restrictions should be put in place for the temple security, he added.
