Lucknow, September 30
Iqbal Ansari, the main litigant in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute, welcomed a special CBI court’s decision acquitting all accused in the mosque demolition case on Wednesday and appealed to all Muslims to honour it.
“It is good that all have been acquitted. Whatever had to happen happened on November 9 last year. This case should also have ended the same day. This is the CBI’s case and the court has given its ruling today. I appeal to Muslims not to take any further action on this. Just as they honoured the November 9 decision, this verdict too needs to be accepted similarly,” he said.
Ansari said he did not want any dispute between Hindus and Muslims in the country. “Only those who want to break the country try to continue with disputes,” he added. — PTI
‘It’s Travesty of justice’
All charged with criminal conspiracy acquitted. It (mosque) imploded on its own? The SC Constitution Bench headed by then CJI had said the demolition was an egregious violation of law. Now this verdict! — Sitaram Yechury, CPM leader
‘Only satisfies hindutva ideology’
This judgment satisfies the collective consciousness of Hindutva and its followers and its ideology. Justice is not done in the case. Everyone is unhappy over the special CBI court verdict — Asaduddin Owaisi, AIMIM president and Hyderabad MP
