Hindustan says ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’ before Ayodhya title suit verdict

Even as the nation is waiting with bated breath for the Ayodhya title-suit verdict on September 30, 2010, Hindi daily Hindustan organised a discussion among some eminent personalities at all its printing centers to foster peace and harmony. All the participants appealed to the people of respective their cities and India as a whole to preserve peace no matter what the judgment is.

Speaking on this initiative on the eve of the verdict day, Shashi Shekhar, Editor-in-Chief, Hindustan, said, “Being a responsible newspaper, we decided to make the people of the society, for whom this decision matters, interact and give a message to the people that ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’.”

Barring Delhi and Chandigarh, this discussion took place in every printing center of Hindustan where priests, clerics, lawyers and other eminent personalities shared their views and appealed to the people to accept the Court’s judgment, imposing faith in the impartiality of the Judiciary.

As is known, advisories have already gone out to the electronic media from the Information and Broadcasting Ministry, asking news channels to exercise restraint in coverage of the ruling. Newspapers are also doing their bit to inform the society well before the verdict. Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh had appealed to the masses through an extensive media campaign, asking them to respect the Court’s judgment.
