Foreign minister Dr A K Abdul Momen today expected the Indian Supreme Court verdict on Babri Mosque issue in their Ayodhya state to cause no tension in Bangladesh and wished peace to prevail in India as well.

“We won’t be in any tension regarding this (Ayodhya land dispute verdict),” he told newsmen after inaugurating the South Asian Karate Championship in the capital.

Momen said, simultaneously, “We will expect that peace will prevail also in India”.

The minister said the heritage of interfaith harmony in Bangladesh would help keep peace in Bangladesh where “all of us Muslims, Christians, Hindus and (Buddhists) are living in harmony”.

“We will study the verdict (of Indian SC) but we will not be in tension,” Momen said declining to comment further as he was yet to go through the verdict.

The foreign minister said that he would request home minister to be vigilant so that no one can create any tension in the country capitalizing the verdict.
