A section of Muslim clerics and peace activists today marked the 20th anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition today with special 'azaan' and protest meetings.

While members of Raza Academy, a Sunni Muslim group, reiterated the demand for rebuilding the mosque at its site, activists of Quami Majlis-e-Shoora said the September 30 verdict of the Allahabad high court had left Muslims with almost no option but to approach the Supreme Court.

The city's Muslim pockets of Madanpura and Mohammed Ali saw some Muslims giving 'azaan' in memory of the demolished Babri Masjid, a symbolic mourning of the breach of law and order on December 6, 1992,in Ayodhya.

High security was maintained in the city to prevent any untoward incident.
