No criminal conspiracy in Babri demolition: Katiyar

The Supreme Court is likely to pronounce its verdict on Wednesday on the CBI's plea seeking revival of the criminal conspiracy charge against eight senior BJP and VHP leaders including L.K. Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi in the 1992 Babri Masjid demo

Over 2,000 persons were reportedly killed in the nation-wide riots that followed the demolition.

An All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) member on Wednesday said that the Supreme Court will deliver justice in connection with the Babri Masjid demolition case.

Reopening of Babri Masjid case, a conspiracy against LK Advani from becoming next President of India.

Because the cases are two different sets.

Now two sets of cases relating to the demolition of the mosque are being heard by courts in Uttar Pradesh. We think that all those who are culprits in this case, charges will be framed against them, and it will be ensured that justice must be done in this case.

Apex Court allowed the CBI's appeal challenging withdrawal of conspiracy charges against Senior BJP leaders including L K Advani and others.

Besides other charges, 13 people including present Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh, Satish Pradhan, Champat Rai Bansal, Mahant Avaidyanath, Paramhans Ramchandra, Ram Vilas Vedanti, Mahamandaleshwar Jagdish Muni Maharaj, Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, Dharam Das Chola, Satish Nagar, Moreshwar Save and Baikunth Lal Sharma are also facing trial for conspiracy charges in Lucknow.

Kalyan Singh, who was Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh when the mosque was demolished, is now the Governor of Rajasthan state and can not be prosecuted while in office under the Constitution.

Justice Rohington F Nariman will pronounce the verdict.

Mr Modi has himself been dogged by questions over his Hindu nationalist ideology.

The site where the mosque once stood has always been a flashpoint between Hindus and the country's Muslim minority, Julie adds.

It also said that the trial judge of Lucknow "shall not be transferred" till conclusion and delivery of the judgement in the sensational case.

At that time it is reportedly known that Advani lead activists and leaders in BJP chose to built Rama temple where the mughals built the Babri Masjid. Photographs circulated at the time showed politicians celebrating its destruction.

Campaigns to rebuild the Ram temple had simmered for decades but from the late 1980s became a major rallying point for the Hindutva movement, which argues that India's culture and institutions should reflect the country's essential Hindu nature, with less "appeasement" of religious minorities.

Most BJP politicians have said the courts should decide if construction can go ahead.

The demolition of the mosque in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh sparked nationwide riots in which thousands were killed, majority Muslims. It further stated that the judges presiding over the case will not be transferred till the trial is concluded and judgment has been pronounced.
