Jamaat rejects out of court settlement in Babri Masjid demolition case
Saturday December 6, 2014 8:10 PM, News Network

On the occasion of 22nd anniversary of Babri Masjid demolition Saturday, the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind reiterated its resolve to continue, in cooperation with the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, human rights organisations and justice-loving people of all religions, to continue peaceful struggle for restoration and reconstruction of Babri Masjid.

At the same time, the Jamaat leaders refuted all possibilities for an out of court settlement over the case.

At the monthly press conference here at its headquarter in New Delhi, Jamaat leaders expressed hope the Muslim community would get justice in the Babri Masjid case which is now pending in the Supreme Court of India.

"6th December 1992 is one of the blackest days in the history of India. On that day a fatal assault was made on humanity, democracy, tolerance and religious freedom. This brutal move caused great mental agony to every peace-loving, human friendly upholder of freedom and rule of law, and our beloved country had to hang her head in shame," said Jamaat.

Jamaat termed it disturbing that perpetrators of the demolition are still walking free and they haven't been arrested even for name's sake.

"The saga of the last 22 years is no less miserable. Despite talking of democracy and rule of law, those responsible for Babri Masjid demolition are walking free even today. They were not arrested even for name's sake; rather they have been deployed to government posts.

"This is highly shameful and disturbing. The Liberhan Commission presented a report after a long period of 17 years but no practical moves were made thereon. The legal process in court is also going on with a very slow pace", they said.

When asked about the Babri Masjid case and apprehensions created in the wake of BJP coming to power at the centre, Nusrat Ali, Secretary General of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, said: "The case is pending before the Supreme Court. We are hopeful that the verdict will come in our favour."
