LK Advani May Go To Jail For Demolishing Babri Masjid

The Supreme Court of India said on Wednesday that senior BJP leaders LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharti and others will be tried for conspiring to bring down the 16th-century Babri mosque in Ayodhya 25 years ago. The Supreme Court has allowed Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) appeal challenging the withdrawal of conspiracy charges against VVIPs leaders.

On 6 December 1992, a large crowd of Hindu Kar Sevaks (activists) demolished the Babri Mosque in the city of Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh. In the 1980s, the Vishva Hindu Parish (VHP) began a campaign for the construction of a temple, dedicated to Rama. Several rallies and marches were held as a part of this movement, including the Ram Rath Yatra led by L.K. Advani.

According to the NDTV, Kalyan Singh, former Chief Minister, is currently a governor, so he has immunity from prosecution. His trial will begin after his term in office ends. In 1990, Mr Advani and other BJP leaders met and decided that the mosque would be demolished, according to the CBI.

By combining the two trials, the judges want to ensure that a verdict is delivered within two years.
