Mumbai, Sep 24 :In the backdrop of the decades-old Ayodhya title suit case, Shiv Sena Chief Bal Thackeray on Friday  said matters of faith and belief cannot be resolved in any court of law. In an editorial in party mouthpiece 'Saamana', Thackeray said the Ayodhya issue pertains to the faith and belief of Hindus.  

"Lord Ram was born in Ayodhya and was its king. Do we live in our own country by suppressing our faith and beliefs. Issues of faith and belief cannot be solved in any court of law," he said. He ridiculed appeals for peace made by the Centre in view of the Ayodhya verdict when it has not been able to ensure normalcy in Kashmir.  

Thackeray said Kashmir has been burning for the last four months.  

"Despite appeals for peace by the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi, there is no sign of it. The government cannot silence the separatists who favour Pakistan, but will not allow Hindus to say 'Jai Sri Ram'," he added. PTI
