‘Supreme Court should resolve Babri Masjid dispute’

A senior lawyer representing Indian Muslims in the decades-old Babri Masjid dispute has said that the Supreme Court should announce its verdict and resolve the issue.

Zafaryab Jilani, convener of the Babri Masjid Action Committee, made the remarks ahead of the demolition of a 16th century mosque in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh in December 1992.

The dispute between Hindus and Muslims in India has resulted in the death of many over the years.

In December 1992, Hindus gathered at the disputed site and destroyed the 16th-century mosque named after Mughal Emperor Babur. The destruction sparked nationwide riots that left around 2,000 people dead.

The case is currently being heard by the Supreme Court.

“Judgment of the Honourable Supreme Court is the only solution of the issue about which no prediction is possible. However, Muslims have strong case based on documentary evidence and admissions of Hindus. As such we have strong hope of success in the appeals pending before Supreme Court,” said Jilani.

The lawyer said the issue was being misused by far-right parties like the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) to garner Hindu votes in next year's general elections.

He called for the Muslim community to exercise calm as it had been doing so far.
