Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday called for a BJP core meet in the capital, where the Babri Masjid case is likely to be a major point of discussion. Earlier today, the Supreme Court had restored the criminal conspiracy charged against to leaders of the Bhartiya Janata Party, such as Lal Krishna Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti in the case concerning the demolition of the Babri masjid. The Supreme Court also made abundantly clear that it would not grant any adjournment in the case under normal circumstances, and no judge, hearing the case would be transferred.
The SC further directed that there would be no case filed against Kalyan Singh, who currently serves as the Governor of Rajasthan. The top ministers of the BJP government are known to be rushing for the meet. The situation in Kashmir might also be discussed in the meet. The demolition cases dates back to December 6, 1992, when Vishwa Hindu Parishad kar sevaks had demolished the Babri masjid. This had led to serious acts of communal violence leading to riots, which had killed 3000 people. The Babri Masjid demolition cases had been registered under 2 crime files. The first one dealt with the lakhs of VHP’s Kar Sevaks and the second had been filed against senior leaders such as L K Advani, Murali Manohar Joshi, Kalyan Singh, Vinay Katiyar, Uma Bharti.
The SC said that the conspiracy case against these leaders would now be shifted to Lucknow from Rae Bareli. Earlier the Central Bureau of Investigation had filed a plea in the SC to restore the case of conspiracy against these leaders.Although, these leaders had been acquitted of the conspiracy charges by the Allahabad High Court, which had said that at no point of time it had ever been stated that there was a charge of criminal conspiracy against the leaders.
