The New India and the ticking time bomb

The making of a new India in the idea of Narendra Modi is moving towards its goal with the Supreme Court of India giving a landmark judgment in the Ayodhya case. Earlier, his government has abrogated the Article 370 of the Constitution of India which provided special status for the Jammu and Kashmir. Modi had tactfully handled the situation that everything is now settled without much noise. In the North Eastern part of the country, the decades old insurgency problem is nearing its end after one of the most hostile insurgence, which they consider as the mother of all insurgence group in the region has been tamed. It will not take even a week from today that the issue will be solved using any means. 
The kind of activities carrying out by Narendra Modi government sees a political will even though it stands against the vision of many now has engraved trust to the integrity of the Indian political leaders. This will be a clear message to the world that no force can played the sentiments of the country. 
The way Modi’s government exercise its powers to fulfill the idea of New India sees support from all statutory bodies not to be left aside the Judiciary.  
In today’s landmark verdict of the Supreme Court, the venoms had been sucked from both Muslim who had been claiming the disputed and that of the Hindus who had been fighting for possessing the land which they believed to be the birth place of Lord Rama. Even as some Muslims are not happy they respect the judgment delivered by the 5 judge bench today.  
While stating that the 1992 demolition of the 16th century Babri Masjid mosque was a violation of law, the Supreme Court has granted the entire 2.77 acre of disputed land in Ayodhya to deity Ram Lalla and directed the Centre and Uttar Pradesh government to allot an alternative 5 acre land to the Muslims at a prominent place to build a mosque.
The way the security measures being taken up across the country particularly in UP and central India, and the verdicts of the SC shows the need for every Indian to end the longest pending issue of Independent India. No politics is being allowed to be played by any individuals including his political parties. All were left with the SC and the verdict was well respected. Or else, the music of allotting 5 acres of land in merely like exchange of the 2.77 acres of land will not be faced. 
The when all is going well with the idea of making a new India, something is seriously wrong by not respecting the history of the erstwhile kingdom of Manipur which was merged to the Indian Union in a controversial manner on October 15, 1949. Recognition to the history of this erstwhile kingdom and respect to it is seen left by Modi led government even as his recognition of the history of Naga as claim by NSCN-IM has been served.  The left over issue if not solve in time will again remain as a ticking time bomb that will explode at any movement in the future to the making of the new India.
