India Tightens Security Ahead of Verdict on Contested Religious Site
India's top court is set to deliver a ruling, Saturday, November 9, on a disputed religious site, that has been fiercely contested by majority Hindus and Muslims for decades, lawyers said. Officials have beefed up security, anticipating widespread violence. More than 5,000 paramilitary force members and police have been deployed in the northern town of Ayodhya, where an ancient mosque was razed in 1992 by hardline Hindus, who believe the site is the birthplace of Lord Ram, a physical incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu. The destruction of the mosque triggered religious riots in which about 2,000 people, most of them Muslims, were killed across the country and led to a series of court battles with various groups staking claim to the site.
