JIH against out-of-court settlement of Babri Masjid dispute

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Muslim body Jamaat-e-Islami Hind has ruled out any out-of-court settlement of Babri Masjid dispute saying it will continue its peaceful struggle for restoration and reconstruction of the mosque, along with like-minded people.

"Jamaat rules out any possibility for an out-of-court settlement towards resolution of the Babri Masjid case," JIH president Maulana Jalaluddin Umri said terming December 6, 1992, when the mosque was demolished, "one of the darkest days" of history of India.

"On the 24th anniversary of demolition of Babri Masjid, we resolve to continue the peaceful struggle for restoration and reconstruction of the Babri Masjid, in cooperation with the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), human rights organisations and justice-loving people of all religions," he said at a press meet.

Unri regretted the Liberhan Commission presented its report in June 2009 after a long period of 17 years but "no steps" were taken to punish the guilty even after that.

"The case is pending before the Supreme Court and Jamaat is hopeful that the verdict will be in its favor," he said.

Jamat also criticised demonetisation move as an "election stunt" which has caused "inconvenience" to the poor and middle class people and demanding a white paper on it.

"This sudden announcement by the government appears to be an election stunt and has resulted in a lot of inconvenience to millions of poor and middle class citizen," said JIH secretary general Mohammad Salim.
