Babri Masjid: India’s Supreme Court refuses to dismiss the case against BJP leaders

New Delhi: India’s Supreme Court on Monday refused to dismiss the case against Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) leaders accused of involvement in the martyrdom of Babri Masjid in 1992.

The apex court said that it would revive conspiracy charges against senior BJP leaders including LK Advani, Murli Manohar, Uma Bharat, Kalyan Singh and others accused.

The bench also showed it concern over the delay in trial of accused BJP and VHP leaders and said that it might favor joint trial of accused soon, reports Indian media.

The apex court is expected to take action in this regard on March 22, after which BJP leaders and others may face trial.

On December 6, 1992, Babri Masjid, Ayodhya was demolished by extremist mad Hindus who were encouraged to commit the act by their top leaders of RSS and its affiliated groups BJP and VHP.
