A sadhu, or Hindu holy man, walks past policemen standing vigil in Ayodhya, India, Thursday, Sept. 30, 2010. India braced for a spasm of violence Thursday ahead of a potentially explosive court verdict on whether Hindus or Muslims should control a disputed holy site over which deadly riots have broken out in the past. The 16th-century Babri Mosque in the town of Ayodhya was razed by Hindu hard-liners in 1992, setting off violence that killed 2,000 nationwide. (AP Photo/Rajesh Kumar Singh)
