AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi continues to stoke passion, says if Babri Masjid was illegal, why is there a case against Advani

Speaking at this public rally, Asaduddin Owaisi said, "If Babri Masjid was legal then why was it (land) handed over to those who demolished it. If it was illegal then why the case is going on and withdraw the case against Advani. And if it is legal then give it to me."

At a public meeting organized at the Darus salam grounds on occasion of Milad un Nabi late on Saturday night, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Chief Asaduddin Owaisi continued to fear monger and stoke passions post the Ayodhya verdict where the Supreme Court decided to hand over entire 67 acres Ram Janmabhoomi to the Hindus and ordered for the government to give the Muslims an alternate 5 acre land for the construction of their mosque.

Speaking at this public rally, Asaduddin Owaisi said, “If Babri Masjid was legal then why was it (land) handed over to those who demolished it. If it was illegal then why the case is going on and withdraw the case against Advani. And if it is legal then give it to me.” BJP veteran LK Advani is facing trial in his alleged role in the Babri Masjid demolition along with several others.

Owaisi reiterated that he was not satisfied with the judgement and that the Babri Masjid was high right. “I am fighting for my Masjid, not for land”, he said.

During the public meeting, Owaisi told the crowd to “not lose heart”. He said,

“Stay strong, we have to fight, we have to stay united. The world is not going to end here”.

Saying that Milad-un-Nabi processions will be taken out across the country including Telangana, Owaisi, after making provocative statements, urged everyone to not display arrogance during the processions and ‘set an example for others’.

During the public meeting, Owaisi also chose to slam those who were criticising him for not accepting the Supreme Court verdict gracefully. He said it was his ‘democratic right’ to choose and reiterated that his position was aligned with the AIMPLB.

On Sunday, Owaisi had said that “Then what does a Muslim see today? That there stood a mosque, for so many years, which has been demolished. Now the court is allowing a building to come upon that site, on an alleged finding that the land belonged to Ram Lalla.”

Interestingly, for Owaisi, a Mosque built by invaders was sacrosanct, while he had no problems mocking the Hindu faith, despite the ASI findings, and calling it an ‘alleged finding’.

Claiming that even today BJP and RSS have a list of several mosques which they want to “transform,” Mr Owaisi said they (Muslims) should fight for the Masjid.

Right after the verdict was pronounced in the Ram Janmabhoomi case on 9th November 2019, addressing the media, Owaisi has said, “Supreme Court is Supreme but not infallible. Those who were responsible for razing down the Babri mosque in 1992 have been given the responsibility of forming a trust and building a temple there. I am dissatisfied with the judgment.”

“The Sunni Waqf Board did a commendable job in fighting for our legal rights. It is upon them to study the entire verdict and decide the future course of action. I am dissatisfied with the verdict. I believe they should reject the 5-acres land granted to them as alms. We are fighting for our legal rights. We don’t need donation and stop patronising us,” Owaisi said.

Baba Ramdev, the yoga guru had called Owaisi a traitor in response. He had said, “I am calling him a traitor because he does not have faith in Bharat or Bharatiya. He has a religious agenda and he wants to secure his power using this agenda and wants to incite people.”

In a historic judgement ending a dispute spanning centuries, the Supreme Court of India handed over the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri masjid land to the Hindu parties, making way for Hindu devotees to have a grand Ram Mandir at the birthplace of Lord Ram. The Apex court also ordered the union government to provide 5 acres of land at an alternate site at a prominent location in Ayodhya to the Sunni Waqf Board to rebuild the Babri Masjid which was demolished in 1992.

The 5-judge bench of the supreme court delivered a unanimous judgement in the Ram Janmabhoomi case. The top 5 senior judges came to the decision after weighing the arguments presented by all sides for 40 days. CJI Ranjan Gogoi said that the bench is the final arbitrator in the matter and he said that the court is not obligated to give a religious rationale while deciding the case.
