Tens of thousands protest in India for controversial Hindu temple

Thackeray said, "I told the saints who blessed me yesterday that the work which we are about to begin can't be done without their blessings".

Several top and mid-level police officers, 160 inspectors, 700 constables, ten companies of Central Paramilitary forces, 42 companies of Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC), five companies of Rapid Action Force (RAF), Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATF) commandos and drone cameras have been deployed in Ayodhya in preparation for the gatherings.

Apprehending violence, many Muslim families have left. VHP media in-charge Ambuj Ojha said, "After staying in a "taat" (tent), Lord Ram is expecting a revival of bravado among his devotees".

Ayodhya Municipal Corporation Mayor Rishikesh Upadhyay, however, said there was no fear or apprehension among the Muslims.

The Sena chief dared the Modi government to announce a date for the construction for a temple at the disputed site.

Tweeting pictures from the scene, he said: "Everyone is being evacuated and there are some still too afraid to leave the stores". City of Elizabeth Spokeswoman Kelly Martins says the man was shot Friday night at The Mills at Jersey Gardens .

Anil Pathak, the district chief of Faizabad, where the mosque is located, said: "The government will ensure that the event passes off peacefully and the local administration has put in place an elaborate security apparatus". "So, an ordinance must be promulgated before 2019 and the construction of the Ram temple must start". You can take the credit. "The Ram temple is not built due to the Kumbhakarn, who is sleeping... we want to wake up the sleeping Kumbhakarn".

Ruled by the BJP's Yogi Adityanath, a Hindu hardliner, Ayodhya is in the politically important northern Uttar Pradesh state, which is bigger than Brazil by population, and sends more legislators than any other state to India's parliament. Talking to reporters on Friday, Mr. Yadav said, "The Supreme Court should take notice of the situation in Uttar Pradesh".

The Muslim litigant in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit, Iqbal Ansari, on Saturday said he was satisfied with the security arrangements in Ayodhya ahead of the VHP "Dharam Sabha", but questioned the intention of the leaders in bringing such large crowds to the town.

Some 300,000 Indians are expected to rally this weekend to press for a Hindu temple to be built at a disputed site where a mosque was destroyed in 1992, organisers said Thursday.
