The Hyderabad city police are on a high alert following the anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition on Friday. Security has been beefed up across the Old City.

The Majlis Bachao Tahreek (MBT) has also called for a bandh to mark the 21st anniversary of Babri demolition.

ACP, Mirchowk, S Gangadhar said that they were taking all precautionary measures in view of MBT’s bandh call on Friday. Heavy forces were deployed in all sensitive localities of the Old City.

Rapid Action Forces (RAF) and APSP were deployed near Mecca Masjid for the smooth conduct of Friday prayers.

For public peace and tranquillity, police also issued orders for the closure of liquor shops. Police said that all bars/wine shops and bars/wine shops attached to restaurants (excluding bars in star hotels and registered clubs) within the limits of Hyderabad and Secunderabad, shall remain closed from 6 a.m. on December 6 to 6 a.m. on December 7.

Party leaders said that the demolition of the Babri Masjid was a Black Day in the Indian history. The Allahabad High Court judgment delivered on September 30, 2010 on the incident was also the ‘most black day’ in the annals of Indian history as the verdict perverts law and paves ground for fresh hostilities against minorities.
