AIMIM chief Owaisi Following the pronouncement of the verdict said that the “Supreme Court is indeed supreme but not infallible.”
Bhopal: Days after Supreme Court verdict in the Ayodhya land dispute case, a case has been filed against AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi. The case alleged that Owaisi made provocative statements against the Supreme Court’s verdict.
In Ayodhya case, the judgment of the Supreme court had ordered the Centre to form a trust to construct a temple at the site where the Babri Masjid once stood. The Supreme Court had also directed the centre to allot an alternative five-acre “prominent and suitable” plot for Muslims to construct a mosque. However, it said that the plot should be provided inside the Ayodhya.
AIMIM chief Owaisi Following the pronouncement of the verdict said that the “Supreme Court is indeed supreme but not infallible”.
“I am not satisfied with the verdict. We have full faith in the Constitution. We were fighting for our legal rights. We do not need five-acre land as a charity,” said Owaisi.
His statement invited a lot of flak. Soon after that on Monday, advocate Pawan Kumar Yadav filed a complaint against him in the Jahangirabad police station in Bhopal city. He alleged that Owaisi had not only dishonoured the SC verdict by criticizing it but also tried to stir communal passion by giving the inflammatory statement.
On Saturday, the Supreme Court in a unanimous verdict said that Babri Masjid was not constructed on vacant land. There was an underlying structure which was not Islamic.Ram Lalla Virajman won the land dispute case. On the other hand, Nirmohi Akhara was given suitable representation in the trust. The verdict was pronounced by a five-judge Constitution Bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi.
