People react after Sunni Wakf Board disowns its lawyer Kapil Sibal’s demand to defer Ram Mandir trial

On Tuesday, senior Congress leader and lawyer Kapil Sibal created a controversy after it was revealed that he was the one representing the Sunni Wakf Board in the Ram Mandir – Babri Masjid matter.

During the trial in the Supreme Court, Sibal strangely asked the court to defer the trial until 2019 or as many inferred, until the next Lok Sabha elections. This gave out the impression that Sibal and possibly his client the Sunni Wakf board had no intention to resolve the matter and intentionally wanted to delay the issue.

This was soon picked up by PM Modi:

With Sibal being a senior congress leader, various citizens questioned as to whether the Congress party endorsed these developments. The party as a result decided to maintain that Sibal was representing the Sunni Wakf board in a personal capacity.

Now the Sunni Wakf Board has decided to throw both the Congress and Sibal under the bus by coming out to assert that they too want a speedy resolution to this issue and that Sibal’s statement yesterday was wrong:

Some might say that the Sunni Wakf board by pointing out Sibal’s political connection, seem to have tried to signal that he was furthering the Congress’ agenda by wanting to delay the trial. This angle was soon advocated by BJP leader Sambit Patra:

People too didn’t hold back from reacting to this news:

Those associated with the BJP too raised questions:

This whole episode does raise a few questions.

If the Sunni Wakf board had never asked Sibal to try and delay the trial, then on whose command was he taking such a stance? Also would the Sunni Wakf board now sever its association with Sibal considering he is clearly jeopardising their interest in the courtroom? Would this new development hurt the image of ‘janeu dhaari Brahmin’, that the Congress party is desperately trying to create? And if it does, what would the repercussions be on the upcoming Gujarat elections?
