On Monday, a special CBI court fixed July 24 for recording the statement of former Deputy Prime Minister Advani in the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition case. The statement of the 92-year-old BJP leader will be recorded through video conference under Section 313 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CRPC).
There is a possibility of going to Ayodhya for ‘Bhoomi Pujan’ on August 5 for the construction of Ram temple of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The Shiv Sena said that on the day the Babri Masjid was demolished, the world saw the faces of many “warriors” turning black with fear. Shiv Sena claimed, “The then BJP Vice President Sundar Singh Bhandari said that we did not do this, it is the work of Shiv Sena.”
The Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena said, “On this, the late Balasaheb Thackeray thunderously said that even if his soldiers had done this, they are proud of him.” The Babri Masjid in Ayodhya was demolished by ‘kar sevaks’ on 6 December 1992. He claimed that the ancient Ram temple was built at the same site. Advani and BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi were leading the Ram Temple movement at that time.
