Congress Opposes Babri Demolition Verdict, Claims it's 'Unconstitutional'
The Congress party has claimed that the verdict on the Babri Masjid case given by the Special CBI court goes against "the Supreme Court judgment and to the Constitutional spirit."
"Babri Masjid Demolition Case runs counter to the Supreme Court judgment and to the Constitutional spirit. The SC had held in a 5-judge bench that the destruction of the mosque as illegal. Every Indian who has innate faith in the Constitution and also in the spirit of communal amity,
brotherhood expects and urges the Central and State governments to file an appeal against the decision of the special court as founded in error," said Congress leader Randeep Surjewala.
Meanwhile, its coalition partner in Maharasthra Shiv Sena has shown optimism in the verdict. "Verdict saying demolition wasn't a conspiracy and a result of circumstances was the expected judgment. We must forget that episode. If the Babri Masjid wasn't demolished we wouldn't have seen any Bhumi Pujan for Ram Mandir," said Sanjay Raut, Shiv Sena leader.
"I and my party Shiv Sena, welcome the judgment and congratulate Advani ji, Murli Manohar ji, Uma Bharti ji & the people who have been acquitted in the case," added the Shiv Sena leader.
Similarly, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has welcomed the verdict.
"It proves that the then Congress govt had framed saints, BJP leaders, VHP officials in false cases with intention to defame them, for vote bank politics. Those responsible for this conspiracy should apologise to the nation," said the UP CM.
