Babri Masjid demolition case verdict: CBI court acquits LK Advani, 31 other accused
BJP veteran LK Advani on Wednesday (September 30, 2020) welcomed the judgement by the Special CBI Court in Babri Masjid demolition case. “The judgement vindicates my personal and BJP’s belief and commitment toward the Ram Janmabhoomi movement,” the BJP stalwart said after being acquitted by Special CBI Court, Lucknow.
Meanwhile, his party colleague and former Union Minister Murli Manohar Joshi said, “It’s a historic decision by the court. This proves that no conspiracy was hatched for December 6 incident in Ayodhya. Our program and rallies were not part of any conspiracy. We are happy, everyone should now be excited about Ram Mandir’s construction.”
The demolition of the Babri mosque in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992, was not planned and involved “anti-social elements”, a court in Uttar Pradesh said today, acquitting all 32 accused including BJP leaders LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti of conspiracy charges in a landmark verdict.
“The accused tried to stop the demolition,” said special CBI judge SK Yadav, adding that the Hindu activists who tore down the 16th-century mosque were “anti-social elements”
