Verdict Runs Counter To Constitutional Spirit: Opposition On Babri Verdict

The verdict to acquit all the accused runs counter to constitutional spirit and the 2019 Supreme Court judgement that had described the demolition of the structure as an “egregious violation of the rule of law” Congress said on Babri Masjid demolition verdic, Wednesday. Congress also demands to file appeal against this verdict. CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury described the verdict as “complete travesty of justice”. “All charged with criminal conspiracy to demolish Babri Masjid acquitted. Is it self imploded? The Constitution Bench headed by then CJI had said that demolition was an ”egregious” violation of law. Now this verdict!  Shame,” he tweeted. Expressing outrage over the verdict, AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi called it “obnoxious” and said the central agency should appeal against it. DMK president M K Stalin alleged the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has failed to act fairly in the Babri mosque demolition case and that it has become a “caged parrot” of the BJP-led Centre. The 16th century mosque was demolished on December 6, 1992, triggering riots that left hundreds dead in the country and widening rifts between the communities.
