Following the verdict of acquittal of all the accused in the Babri Masjid case by the special CBI Court of Lucknow, Congress expresses ‘Every Indian’s’ innate faith in Constitution and expects Central and state governments to appeal against the decision.
“Every Indian, who has innate faith in Constitution, expects Centre, state government to appeal against special court decision in Babri case,” Congress said in a statement.
Nearly thirty years after the Babri Masjid was razed by a mob in Uttar Pradesh, a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Lucknow on Wednesday has acquitted all 32 involved, including BJP leaders LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti, citing lack of evidence.
The court said there was no conclusive proof against the accused. “They have been acquitted for lack of evidence,” defence lawyer KK Mishra said in a statement. Twenty-six out of the 32 accused were present in the special court when the judgment was pronounced.
Several Ministers including UP CM Yogi Adityanath and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh have tweeted in support of the verdict saying those acquitted were wrongfully accused of the same. Whereas, AIMPLB secretary Zafaryab Jilani said that the judgment pronounced by the special CBI court in the Babri Demolition case is wrong.
