While there was a strong political will behind the Ayodhya land dispute case, the Babri Masjid Demolition case is still pending and there are no signs of it being speeded up.
Supreme Court Observation
Supreme Court judgement
The ‘other’ Ayodhya case
Why does nobody care about the Babri Masjid Demolition case?
The difference between both the cases was that behind the title suit case, there was a strong political will, whereas the Babri Masjid Demolition case is still pending and there are no signs of it being speeded up. There is no political will to bring this case to its conclusion. More surprising, is even the Muslim side is not really bothered about this case. There are no two questions that India accepts the verdict of the supreme court in the land dispute case. But isn’t time that we as a secular democratic country throw our weight behind speedy trial in the other Ayodhya case to wipe away, if not to completely wash away, the dark spot on India’s secular history?
