Chennai, Nov 9 : The Supreme Court’s verdict in the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi land title case has opened a Pandora’s box as it was based on the people’s belief, and the ‘heart burning judgement’ is full of contradictions, said M. H. Jawahirullah, President of the Manitheneya Makkal Katchi (MMK).
He also said the judgement has set a wrong precedence and may pave the way for such claims in other places like Mathura, Kashi and others.
“The Muslim community had faith in the country’s judicial system and had always approached the court in the Babri Masjid case. However, the Supreme Court judgement has disappointed us,” Jawahirullah told IANS.
Jawahirullah said the judgement was also full of contradictions.
He referred to the point in which the Supreme Court said the destruction of the Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992 was an illegal act. The apex court also said that no temple was demolished to build the Babri Masjid.
“On the whole it is a heart burning judgement which goes against the very idea of a secular India,” he said.
The apex court on Saturday delivered its judgement in the long pending case whereby it ordered the Centre to form a Trust to build and maintain the temple. The court also ordered allotment of five acres at an alternate site to the Muslims for building a mosque.
