Rationalist response to regressive Ayodhya verdict?
#1
Soli Sorabjee called the Allahabad HC verdict on the Ram Janmabhoomi title suit to be an act of 'judicial statesmanship'. But perhaps it's really 'judicial appeasement'.

I was dismayed to read yesterday that the judgment actually featured the sentence: " The disputed site is the birthplace of Lord Ram.”
I therefore share the dismay of the authors of the following article:

After the unfounded euphoria over the so-called 'one-third reconciliation formula' has worn out, the realization that literalist, majoritarian religion has overriden factual evidence will soon sink in. There's no escaping the fact that this is a setback for freethinkers.
