Ayodhya Case Verdict received Mixed Reactions From The Opposition
While the Congress stated that it was in favor of the verdict, of building a Ram Temple. The CPI(M) on the other hand, said that “certain premises” in the judgment are”questionable”.
The AIMIM chief Asadudin Owaisi exclaimed that the Supreme Court was “not infallible” and that “it was a victory of “faith over facts”. The Aam Adami Party (AAP) on the other hand, welcomed this verdict as well with the CPI saying that it was a “reconciliatory” judgment.
Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Adami Party leader, Arvind Kejriwal earlier tweeted, “after hearing the arguments of all parties, the Supreme Court gave their verdict today unanimously. We welcome the judgment. Today SC gave a decision on a controversy of several decades. The years-old dispute ended today. I appeal to all people to maintain peace and harmony”
The CWC ( The Congress Working committee) on Saturday morning has issued a statement that stated that it rejects the verdict and has further requested everyone to abode by the secular values which are instilled in the constitution in order to sustain peace and serenity in the country.
While RJD (Rashtriya Janata Dal) urged various political parties to respect the verdict of the Supreme Court and shift their focus on other important issues like public services. In a tweet, RJD chief Tejaswi Yadav said,
“We respect the verdict of the apex court. All the temples, masjids, gurdwaras and churches belong to us. Nothing or no one belongs to outsiders. Everything belongs to us. Now, political parties should focus on good schools, colleges, hospitals and providing job opportunities for young people.”
“It is the responsibility of each one of us to reaffirm our tradition of mutual respect and unity among all that has defined our society through the ages,”
The CPIM politburo in a statement, said: “The CPI(M) has always maintained that the issue should be resolved by a judicial verdict if a negotiated settlement was not possible. While this judgment has provided a judicial resolution to this fractious issue there are certain premises of the judgment which are questionable.
“The Court judgment has itself stated that the demolition of the Babri Masjid in December 1992 was a violation of the law. This was a criminal act and an assault on the secular principle. The cases pertaining to the demolition should be expedited and the guilty punished. The Court has also appreciated the 1991 Places of Religious Worship Act. Adherence to this law should ensure that no such disputes on religious places are again raised and utilized.”
