Hitting out at the RSS over the Ayodhya issue, MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi Friday said the Supreme Court cannot take decisions on the basis of sentiments.
He was referring to RSS general secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshi's comments urging the Supreme Court to take into consideration "sentiments of Hindus" on the Ayodhya issue.
"The Supreme Court cannot take decisions on the basis of 'Hindu bhavna'.
He's (Joshi) still in denial that there is something called Constitution of India. Aastha, bhavna, etc isn't relevant, only insaaf is," Owaisi tweeted.
The RSS on Friday said Hindus were feeling "insulted" by the Supreme Court's declaration that the Ayodhya issue is not a priority and insisted that an ordinance would be needed if all options run out.
After a three-day RSS conclave at Uttan in Maharashtra, its general secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshi said the organisation "will not hesitate to launch an agitation for Ram temple, if needed, but since the matter is in the Supreme Court, there are restrictions."
He said the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was "not putting pressure" on the government as "we respect the law and the Constitution, which is why there has been a delay."
"We respect the Supreme Court and urge it to take into consideration sentiments of hindus," Joshi had said while addressing a press conference after the National Executive meeting of the RSS at Uttan on the outskirts of Mumbai.
