Babri Masjid case: Owaisi’s allegations against Congress directly benefiting BJP _ M Afzal

New Delhi: After Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), now Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (BJP) is also raising Babri Masjid issue. Attacking Congress, MIM chief and MP Asaduddin Owaisi alleged that Congress asked Kapil Sibal to step away from the Babri Masjid case. It must be noted that Asaduddin Owaisi himself is the member of All India Muslim Personal Law Board and Kapil Sibal is representing the Board in the case.

According to Inquilab, Dr Qasim Rasool Ilyas told that Kapil Sibal asked to postpone the case as some people are trying to take political mileage out of it.

Congress spokesman M Afzal said Owaisi is wrong in saying that Congress has stopped Sibal from taking up the Babri Masjid Case. Owaisi is directly benefiting BJP by giving such statements, he said.

It must be recalled that Sibal had requested the court to not hear the matter until July 2019, until the next Lok Sabha elections are over. He told the apex court that whenever this matter is heard, there are serious repercussions outside the court and to preserve the decorum of law and order, he personally requests the court to take this matter up on July 15, 2019.
