Addressing the media, Asaduddin Owaisi said that the Supreme Court is “indeed supreme, but not infallible”. He also claimed it to be the victory of faith over facts.
Calling the five-acre land a ‘donation’, he said “We have full faith in the constitution, we were fighting for our right, and we don’t need five-acre land as a donation. We should reject this five-acre land offer, don’t patronize us.”
Taking a dig at the Congress party, Owaisi alleged, “Congress has shown their true colours. For the Congress party’s deception and hypocrisy, Ram idol was placed in Babri in 1949. If the locks were not been opened by Rajiv Gandhi, the Masjid would have been there. If Narasimha Rao would have discharged his duties, the Masjid would still be there.”
A dissatisfied Owaisi also alleged that the apex court has ordered to form a Trust by the ones who demolished the Babri Masjid and start the construction of the temple.
He further added that he would beg on the roads of Hyderabad, and collect enough money to build a mosque in UP. “We are fighting for our rights. No need to patronise us,” he reiterated.
The Supreme Court on Saturday, in its verdict, gave its nod for the construction of Ram Mandir in the disputed Ayodhya land.
The historic judgement was made by a five-judge bench led by Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi. The bench also included Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer.
A total of 2.77-acre land has been allotted to the Hindu parties by the Supreme Court with a Trust to be formed by the Centre to monitor the construction of Ram Mandir.
The Sunni Waqf Board will get 5 acres of alternate land, which will be accorded either by the state or the Centre
