Katiyar to make 'revelations' about Babri demolition Dec 6

Malegaon: Even as NGOs, Rights Activists and a vast majority of secular people in India join hands to demand rebuilding of the demolished mosque, Nationwide protests demanding punishment to the culprits involved in the demolition of the historic Babri Masjid on December 6 in 1992 are planned today.


Today being December 6, the day when Babri Masjid was demolished by the right wing Hindu organisations allegedly supported by their political arm Bhartia Janata Party (BJP) in 1992, several Muslim NGOs, along with other secular people in India and abroad are planning protest march, candle-light march and Azaan at 03:35 in the afternoon - the time when the mosque was razed.


PFI demands action against culprits

Popular Front of India (PFI) will be organizing nationwide protest campaign demanding from the central government to punish the culprits responsible for the demolition of Babri Masjid.


"On 6th December, 1992 the anti-national communal forces had attacked the secular fabric of the country and insulted the values of democracy by demolishing the historic Babri Masjid. Moreover, the series of communal riots followed throughout the country had affected the inter-religious trust, harmony and amity among the citizens of the country", said K. M. Shareef General Secretary.


"The campaign will include public meetings at district level, poster campaign, Babri Masjid Documentary video distribution, protest rallies and Dharnas. Several organizations working among different sections of societies are expected to join hands with Popular Front of India (PFI) in this campaign", he informed.


'Rebuild the Babri Masjid at the same site'

While condemning the incidence that occured on December 6, 1992 and actions against the culprits involved in the razing down of the mosque, several organisations are also demanding the reconstruction of the mosque as promised by then Congress government in New Delhi headed by Prime Minister Narsimha Rao.


"Civil Liberties Monitoring committee Hyderabad would be organising a day-long dherna today at Bagh Lingam Pally in Hyderabad to demand the reconstruction of Babri Masjid at the same site", informed Lateef Mohd Khan, G. Secretary, Civil Liberties Monitoring committee.


'Prosecute the architects of demolition'

Expressing concern that there is no specific measure mentioned in the Action Taken Report (ATR) placed before the House after the Liberhan Commission on Babri Masjid case was tabled in the Parliament, Ahmedabad based Movement for Secular Democracy demanded from the UPA government to prosecute those indicted by the commission.


"After 17 long years and over 4000 hearings Justice Liberhan has submitted his report on the demolition of Babri Masjid and it has been placed on the table of the House of the Parliament The report has named 68 important figures responsible for the demolition. It is a matter of concern that as there is no specific measures mentioned in the Action Taken Report(ATR) which was placed before the house of Parliament has encouraged the architects of demolition of Babri to vilify the atmosphere of the country taking advantage of the non prosecution", wrote Prakash N. Shah, Convener of the Movement for Secular Democracy in a letter addressed to the Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh.

"The central thrust of the report expose the shameless betrayal and desecration of the Constitution and it’s basic Principles by the major ruling parties and cannot be ignored or put aside by legal squabbling and finding some loop holes here and there. We the concerned citizens of Gujarat urge you to take immediate steps in this regard and hand over the case to CBI and open Fast track Courts with out delay to bring a logical end to years long judicial feud", he wrote in the letter signed by over a dozen members.


'Candle March'

Meanwhile, on the eve of the 17th anniversary of the demolition of the historic Babri Masjid a silent candle march to demand action on Liberhan Report was organized yesterday on December 5, 2009 at 5.00pm by Dalit Sikh, Christian, Muslim and human rights  organizations.


The march that started from Jantar Mantar Road in New Delhi culminated at the Parliament Street.


According to Ms Archana Singh, Convenor of the joint march, the march was participated by a large number of people belonging to different religions and classes and was addressed by prominent leaders of different communities and political parties.


“The march demanded immediate actions on the Liberhan Commission Report and punishment to those indicted by it as well as stern action against the social, cultural and political organizations,” said Nand Lal, a well known Dalit leader.
