Bollywood Appeal For Peace


Ahead of the Ram Janmabhoomi- Babri Masjid verdict, a host of Bollywood celebrities have come together to appeal people to maintain peace and harmony and not be swayed by aggressive sentiments or elements if not happy with the verdict.

Superstar Shahrukh Khan too has stepped in by saying that God doesn’t reside in manmade monuments.

“Allah, God, Bhagwan in whichever name we pray to the supreme power, resides in man’s heart, not in man-made houses for Him,” SRK wrote on microblogging site Twitter.

The actor said any belief should first take root in the heart.

“I mean first our beliefs should take seed and grow in our hearts and then only we should manifest that in places of prayer and God,” the actor tweeted.

In the light of the Commonwealth Games he added that it’s easier to demolish than to build.

“I hope we Indians realise how difficult it is to build stadiums and respect and so easy to break monuments and disrespect each others’ beliefs,” he wrote.

The Ayodhya land dispute verdict was supposed to come out on September 24 but has been deferred with Supreme Court deciding to hear the plea for postponement on September 28.
