If Babri Masjid illegal, why is Advani being tried :Owaisi

Owaisi

Hyderabad: If Babri Masjid was illegal, then why Advani is being tried for its demolition and if it was legal then why Advani is getting the land, asked All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi.

The Hyderabad MP wondered how a person who demolished somebody’s house can get the same house.

Addressing a public meeting here Friday night on the eve of Milad-un-Nabi, Owaisi found fault with the Supreme Court judgment in Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case and reiterated that ‘Supreme Court is supreme but not infallible’.

“If a person demolishes your house and if you go to an arbitrator and he gives your house to the person who demolished it and tells you that you will be given an alternate land at some other place, how’d you feel,” he asked.

Owaisi said that his basic question is that why Advani and others who demolished Babri Masjid were being tried if the mosque was illegal. “If Babri Masjid was legal, then how can Advani get the land,” he asked while reacting to the Supreme Court giving the land for construction of the Ram temple.

Owaisi slammed those criticising him for not accepting the judgment, saying he has a democratic right to oppose it. The MP alleged that Muslims were insulted by offering them five acres of alternate land.

“Babri Masjid is our legal right. We were not fighting for the land. We don’t want anything in charity. Don’t treat us like beggars. We are respected citizens of this country,” he said.

Owaisi thanked the lawyers who represented the Muslim side in the Supreme Court. He noted that even at the age of 80, Rajiv Dhawan argued in the court for hours together. “We have no words to thank Rajiv Dhawan Sahab. The fact that he took the case and fought in these testing times itself is a big thing,” he said.

The MP said Kapil Sibal also made his contribution in the case, but the Congress party stopped him from fighting the case.

Owaisi said fighting the Babri Masjid case was important as the BJP and Sangh Pariwar have a list of several such mosques. “These organisations are saying they don’t have any list. If this is true, then why are they not withdrawing cases for Kashi and Mathura mosques,” he asked.

Owaisi said all secular parties deceived Muslims. He slammed the Congress for its reaction to the Supreme Court verdict. He said he was fighting against the Congress as it was during its rule that idols were kept in the mosque, its locks were opened and the mosque was demolished.

He questioned the silence of so-called secular parties like Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP).

Owaisi asked Muslims not to lose heart over the judgment, saying it’s their country and they are first class citizens. He urged them to offer ‘Namaz’ regularly and take active part in politics and support their party.

Shivpuri, July 15 : Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister and Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Tuesday launched a scathing attack on erstwhile party colleague Jyotiraditya Scindia for joining hands with the BJP which he dubbed as ‘enemies.

Speaking to reporters in Shivpuri, Digvijaya said that the BJP had ensured Scindia’s defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, yet he shook hands with the same party.

During the tour here, Digvijay faced opposition from BJP workers in Ranaud as they raised slogans against him and tried to stop his convoy while on way to Khod village where he had gone to condole the death of Professor APS Chauhan.

Covid positive staff at PAC meet sparks scare among MPs

Now, calls are being made to all those who attended the meeting, asking them to remain quarantined as a matter of precaution.

New Delhi, July 14 : In what could spell trouble for different Parliamentary committee meetings which have resumed after almost four months, all those who attended the Department Related Standing Committee for Public Accounts or PAC meet have been advised to go into quarantine after a staff who was present at the meeting tested positive for Covid-19.

Most members like Congress’ Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury or DMK’s T.R. Baalu, who attended the meet and went back after meeting several people, have been informed about the official who was present at the PAC meet and later tested positive.

The meeting took place on July 10, while the official tested positive on Tuesday, which essentially means that the 18 MPs who attended the meeting carried on with their normal life for the last few days. The PAC has a total of 20 members, out of which 15 are from the Lok Sabha and 5 from the Rajya Sabha.

Among the 18 MPs who attended the meeting were the committee’s chairperson Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, senior DMK leader and former Union Minister T.R. Baalu, BJP’s Rajya Sabha member Rajeev Chandrashekhar, senior BJP leader Bhupender Yadav and Trinamool MP Sukhendu Shekhar Ray, among others.

Now, calls are being made to all those who attended the meeting, asking them to remain quarantined as a matter of precaution.

On Tuesday evening, Rajeev Chandrashekhar tweeted, “Ok, so I came to Delhi. Attended Parliamentary Committee meeting on 10th. Turns out one staff of Committee secretariat has tested COVID positive today. So I am headed to 7 days quarantine.”

With the gradual resumption of different committee meetings, the government is exploring the possibility of convening a short Monsoon Session of the Parliament.

Both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha secretariats have explored all the possibilities, including using a substitute venue like Vigyan Bhawan, to ensure seating with “do gaaz ki doori”, but none were big enough to accommodate the entire Parliament together.

With this incident, many parliamentarians believe that the fate of other parliamentary committees and even the Monsoon Session has now become uncertain.

Earlier, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh had complained about thin attendance, arguing for a virtual meeting, which both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha secretariats have turned down.

Significantly, on Tuesday, two key BJP leaders — MoS Jitendra Singh and party General Secretary Ram Madhav — went into self quarantine after BJP’s Jammu and Kashmir chief Ravinder Raina tested positive for coronavirus.

Just two days back, Raina had accompanied both the leaders to offer condolences to the family of Wasim Bari, a local BJP leader who was killed along with his father and brother by terrorists in Bandipora town in north Kashmir.

Jaipur, Jul 14 : Soon after Sachin Pilot was removed as Deputy Chief Minister and Pradesh Congress Committee president, Rajasthan NSUI president Abhimanyu Poonia on Tuesday also tendered his resignation.

Poonia said that around 400-500 members holding certain posts in the Youth Congress, National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) and Seva Dal have resigned to protest against the development.

Meanwhile, over 50 Congressmen have also resigned in Tonk, Pilot’s home constituency in Rajasthan to protest against his sacking.

District Congress President of Pali Chunnilal Chadwas has also resigned from the party.

Meanwhile, Pilot in a tweet said: “My heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all those who have come out in my support today. Ram Ram sa.”

Retweeting the post, Poonia said: “We will defeat slavery and will make the struggle win (hamein gulaami ko harana hai aur sangharsh ko jitana hai) #RajasthanKaPilot.”

He said that he resigned from the post in support of Sachin Pilot. “Our conscience is alive, so is our self-respect. #SachinPilotkesaath,” he said on Twitter.

The Congress on Tuesday sacked Sachin Pilot from the posts of Rajasthan’s deputy chief minister as well as the party’s state unit chief and also cracked the whip on the rebel party leader, removing his loyalists Vishvendra Singh and Ramesh Meena from the state cabinet.

Meanwhile, protests were staged in many pockets of Gujjar dominated areas as Pilot is a favourite of the community.

High alert has been sounded in Gujjar-dominated areas in Dausa, Ajmer, Tonk, Sawai Madhopur and Bharatpur to avert any untoward incident.
