Court verdict in Babri masjid demolition case is a ‘travesty of justice’: Saifuddin Soz
Liberhan Commission had pointed to involvement of RSS-BJP leaders including LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharti with connivance of the then Uttar Pradesh Govt., he said
Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister Saifuddin Soz on Thursday said that the Special Court verdict in the Babri masjid demolition case amounted to a ‘travesty of justice’.
“In a travesty of justice, a Special CBI Court Judge Shri. S.K. Yadav on September 30, 2020 acquitted all 32 main accused BJP leaders involved in the demolition of Babri Masjid that took place on 6th December, 1992,” he said in a statement.
“The Special Judge SK Yadav observed that evidence against the accused was not strong enough and the Babri mosque demolition incident was not pre-planned. He further observed that the people who demolished the mosque were anti-national elements and the accused people were, in fact, trying to control the crowds from the demolition of the mosque,” Soz said.
“As against this, the Liberhan Commission set up in 1992 to probe the Babri masjid demolition, had submitted its report on 30th June, 2009 before the then Prime Minister. The Commission had pointed to the involvement of Senior RSS-BJP leaders including L.K. Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharti with connivance of the then Uttar Pradesh Govt. and said that they either actively or passively supported the demolition,” he added.
