CBI Court Acquits All 32 Accused In Babri Masjid Demolition Case
A special court acquitted all 32 accused in the Babri Masjid demolition , citing the lack of evidence to prove their role in any criminal conspiracy around the controversial case
All the 32 accused in the 28-year-old controversial Babri Masjid case have been acquitted by a special court today (30 September). Calling the structure’s demolition spontaneous and not pre-planned, the judge ruled out any conspiracy theories around the matter. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Court further added that there was no conclusive proof against those named, including senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders LK Advani and Uma Bharti.
Special CBI Judge SK Yadav noted that the destruction was carried out by anti-social elements. The videotape and photographic evidence provided in the court was not considered by the magistrate as enough evidence to charge the accused.
The ancient mosque was torn down by thousands of ‘kar sevaks’ on 6 December 1992, after a rally that was organized by the BJP and Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) went out of control and turned violent. Politicians like Advani, Uma Bharti and Murli Manohar Joshi were accused of promoting religious enmity, inciting riots and making communal speeches from a stage close to the site of destruction.
