Rationalist response to regressive Ayodhya verdict?
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.
