The Congress on Wednesday said that the decision of the special court to acquit all the accused in the Babri Masjid demolition case runs counter to the Supreme Court judgment in the Ramjanmabhoomi title, and insisted that there was a deep-rooted political conspiracy by the BJP-RSS and its leaders to destroy the communal amity in the country for usurping power.
Reacting to the trial court's verdict, AICC Communications Department in-charge Randeep Surjewala also said it was incumbent upon the Centre and the state government to file an appeal against it. Surjewala noted that the Supreme Court had, in its judgment dated November 9, 2019, clearly held that the demolition of the Babri Masjid was a clear illegality and “egregious violation of the rule of law.”
“But the Special Court exonerated all the accused. It is clear that the decision of the Special Court runs counter to the decision of the Supreme Court,” he said.
The AICC General Secretary said the country witnessed a deep-rooted political conspiracy by BJP-RSS and its leaders to destroy the country’s communal amity and brotherhood for usurping power at any cost. “The then BJP government of Uttar Pradesh was a co-conspirator in the designed attack on India’s Constitutional ethos. So much so that the Supreme Court was misled by filing a wrong affidavit on oath. It is only after detailed examination of all these aspects, facts and evidence that the Supreme Court held the demolition of Masjid to be "an egregious violation of the rule of law",” he said.
Noting that the decision of the special court was founded in error, Surjewala said it was the expectation of every Indian who has innate faith in the Constitution as also in the spirit of communal amity and brotherhood that the central and state governments file an appeal against the acquittal.
