Video PlayerClose ADEN, Yemen, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- Yemeni families used to flock toward nature reserves for relaxation to heal the wounds caused by the years-long military conflict.

The Ayodhya judgment of November 9 draws on both the polytheism of Hinduism and the modern rule of law, says Deepak Lal.IMAGE: Devotees at a Ram Mandir workshop in Ayodhya. Photograph: ANI Photo The landmark verdict of the Supreme Court on the disputed Babri Masjid gave its land to the idol of Ram, who was given a juristic personality. The court further said a Ram temple, to be put in a trust, was to be built to replace the Babri Masjid. The desecration of the mosque by Hindus in 1949 by insertion of an idol of Ram in the inner sanctum of the mosque, which was subsequently destroyed in 1992 by the Ram Mandir movement, were criminal acts which deprived Muslims of their place of prayer, who were to be compensated by being given land to build a mosque.

We have even gone on vacations together. I don't know if he loves me or not because he is a person who values his family a lot.

All his promises, emotions and love for me seem fake. I was really hurt when we fought one day and he didn't even bother to call me for 24 hours.
