‘Liberhan panel stated that mosque demolished was a well-planned conspiracy’

Hyderabad: Majlis MP Asaduddin Owaisi demanded the Centre to book cases against the 68 persons accused by the Liberhan Commission for the Babri Masjid demolition under section 120b of IPC for hatching a criminal conspiracy.

This conspiracy clause should also be added against BJP leaders -- L.K. Advani, Uma Bharati, Kalyan Singh and Murli Manohar Joshi -- and other Sangh Parivar leaders against whom cases are booked in FIR 197 and 198.

He was addressing a protest public meeting organised in connection with the Babri Masjid demolition anniversary at Zafar Shah ground in Mallepally on Saturday night.

Majlis legislators Syed Ahmed Pasha Qaudri, Afsar Khan, Moazam Khan, Ahmed Balala and Mumtaz Ahmed Khan were present.

The Liberhan Commission had clearly stated that the medieval mosque at Ayodhya was brought down as per a well-planned conspiracy, Mr. Asaduddin said and wondered whether Mr. Advani and others would get punishment during their life time and whether the law would catch up with them.

“It will be a victory for the Constitution and democracy only when those responsible for the Masjid demolition are brought to book. The 30 crore Muslims of country are testing the secular credentials of the government,” the MIM MP said.

PV blamed

Holding former Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao responsible for the Ayodhya tragedy, he demanded immediate renaming of the Expressway and also rechristening of all projects named after Mr. Rao. He demanded reconstruction of the Babri Masjid at the same spot and urged Muslims to continue to struggle for the cause.
