We don’t want donation, we don’t need 5 acres land: AIMIM chief Owaisi whines after SC verdict on Ram Janmabhoomi

"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", said AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi.

Lashing out at the Supreme Court’s verdict in the long-drawn-out Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi ‘rejected’ the 5 acres of land offered by the apex court saying, “We were fighting for our right, we don’t need 5 acres of land as a donation, we should reject this offer”.

Addressing the media, Owaisi blasted, “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.

Owaisi admitted that he was hurt by the judgment of the Supreme Court which offered the title to the Hindu parties while providing a 5-acres land elsewhere to the Muslim side for the construction of the mosque. “The matter is about faith. Today faith has trumped over facts. I will tell my posterity that there was a 500-year-old mosque here in Ayodhya which was demolished by Sangh Parivar and the court granted them authority to build a temple there,” Owaisi said.

Asserting that the event on December 6, 1992, was a crucial determinant to the current verdict, Owaisi insinuated that the Supreme Court’s judgment came in favour of a Ram Temple at the disputed site only because the mosque was already razed down. “What do you think the Supreme Court’s decision would have been in case the mosque was not demolished?” Owaisi rhetorically questioned. He further asserted that the latest verdict will throw open a can of worms as it will serve to bolster the morale of Sangh Parivar, who will now lay claim to other ‘Muslim’ sites where mosques are standing.
