If Babri masjid was illegal, why is Advani being tried for its demolition: Asaduddin Owaisi
Owaisi slammed those criticizing 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.
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 get an alternate land at some other place, how'd you feel," he asked.
Owaisi said that his basic question is 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 criticizing him for not accepting the judgment, saying he has a democratic right to oppose it. The MP alleged that they insulted Muslims by offering them five acres of alternate land.
Later, 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.
