The following speech was delivered by Maulana Syed Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi on 6th January, 1993 at Bara Dari Lucknow, at a select gathering of religious and political leaders of different denominations. The hall was packed to capacity and the audience numbering 10 to 12 thousand spilled outside the Bara Dari .
It may be recalled that the meeting was held one month after the Ayodhya tragedy and the resultant riots at different places were fresh in the mind of the speaker and the audience both. The speech has, therefore, been delivered from the depth of his heart and reflects his intense feelings as an aftermath of double tragedy. It is an appeal to concerned citizens for sanity and it is hoped that they will respond to it in a befitting manner and save the country from sliding further into moral chaos.
