A special CBI court today directed BJP stalwarts L K Advani, M M Joshi and Uma Bharti to appear before it on May 30 for framing of charges in the Babri Masjid demolition case in light of the Supreme Court order restoring the serious offence of criminal conspiracy against them. Special CBI judge S K Yadav also asked BJP leader Vinay Katiyar and VHP’s Sadhvi Ritambara and Vishnu Hari Dalmia to present themselves before the court in person on that day.

He said no application for adjournment or exemption shall be entertained. The court which is hearing two separate cases, has already fixed May 30 for framing of charges against Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, Mahant Ram Vilas Vedanti, Baikunth Lal Sharma alias Prem Ji, Champat Rai Bansal, Dharma Das and Satish Pradhan in the other matter.

The apex court had on April 19 directed that Advani (89), Joshi (83), Bharti (58) and other accused in the case would be prosecuted for serious offence of criminal conspiracy in the politically sensitive 1992 Babri Masjid demolition case. It had also ordered day-to-day trial to be concluded in two years.

Also watch:

The top court, which had dubbed the demolition of the medieval-era monument as a “crime” which shook the “secular fabric of the Constitution”, allowed the CBI’s plea on restoration of criminal conspiracy charge against the BJP stalwarts.

However, the Supreme Court had said Kalyan Singh, who is the Rajasthan Governor and during whose tenure as the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh the disputed structure was razed, is entitled to immunity under the Constitution as long as he holds the gubernatorial office. It had transferred the case against Advani, Joshi, Bharti and three other accused from a Raebareli court to Lucknow for a joint trial in the demolition case.

    This is a challenged case to the Cons ution and Justice of India. The demolition of Babri Maszid makes much differences in National Harmony between two communities. The Nation was shakes by bombs, loots, blazings, fires, kurfues and the courts made busy with criminal cases. A single shot shaken total Indian life from Kashmir to Kanumarugu. The blood of civilians flowed in the streets of Muslim sensed areas. Every heart felt the tyranny of swords, guns, weapons and petrol on innocent creatures. The Justice was done on Communal basis. The actions and reactions faced by the State and Central Governments. The Liberhan committee reports were clear. The Nation PEACE killers were masked with Hinduism and Patriotism. But the Justice never leave the culprits or criminals when the Goddess of Justice holds BALANCE of JUSTICE in one hand and a SWORD in another hand to keep JUSTICE in INDIA. The offender shall not be released from punishment. The innocent should not touch the Law. May 30th, 2017.
