- FO said this is another manifestation of the pliant judiciary under the extremist Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP) RSS regime.
Pakistan has termed the acquittal of all the accused in the Babri Mosque case as shameful saying that this is another manifestation of the pliant judiciary under the extremist Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP) RSS regime.
On Wednesday, the special CBI court in Lucknow ruled that the demolition was not preplanned and acquitted all accused including two former presidents of the BJP L. K. Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi.
In a press release, the Foreign Office (FO) said that the Hindutva-inspired Indian judiciary has once again failed to deliver justice. The FO said before, the Indian Supreme Court had set a wrong direction by handing over the Babri Masjid to the very Hindu parties which had demolished the historic mosque.
"The acquittal today is even against that verdict which had noted that the demolition was an egregious violation of rule of law," the FO said.
The attacks by Hindu zealots on places of worship of Muslims have continued even during the Covid-19 pandemic. FO said. The BJP-RSS anti-Muslim agenda is most visible in Indian Illegally Occupied Kashmir where it continues to implement 'its sinister policies to change the demographic structure of the occupied territory'.
Pakistan urged India to ensure safety, security and protection of minorities, particularly Muslims and their places of worship and other Islamic sites on which the Hindu extremists and zealots have laid claims.
"The world community, the United Nations and relevant international organizations are expected to play their role in safeguarding the Islamic heritage sites in India from the extremist Hindutva regime and ensure protection of religious rights of minorities in India," FO said.
