SC Should Hear Demolition Case First, Then Title Suit: Ayodhya Probe Judge, Liberhan Indian Express 01-12-2017

02, Dec 2017

Justice Manmohan Singh Liberhan has told the Indian Express, days before the Supreme Court starts final hearings in the title suit case from December 5, that the Supreme Court should first hear the case related to the demolition before it begins hearings on the title suit Justice Manmohan Singh Liberhan, whose commission of inquiry held that the demolition of the Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992 was “meticulously planned”, has said that the Supreme Court should have heard the Ayodhya title suit case only after the demolition case has been cleared. His remarks come days before the Supreme Court starts final hearings in the title suit case from December 5.

Speaking to The Indian Express, Liberhan, who submitted his report in June 2009 indicting Atal Bihari Vajpayee along with L K Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi, said: “The Supreme Court’s decision to hear the appeal in the matter of the Ayodhya title suit (the decision of the Allahabad High Court in 2010) on a day-to- day basis from December 5 will adversely affect the demolition suit. What is the point of doing this? If it is decided that it is Wakf property, then one side is established as guilty of demolition. And if the Hindu sides get it, then the act of demolition becomes seen as ‘justified’ — to reclaim own property. This demolition is known to people alive and must be decided first. They can take a few weeks or months to do it.”
