AAP attacks BJP leaders for double speak on Babri masjid demolition


“After 1992, the successive Congress-led and BJP-led governments for obvious reasons have attempted to brush the whole conspiracy under the carpet”, AAP said in a statement.

“Babri Masjid demolition is a glaring example of the BJP doublespeak. Its leaders who had a direct hand in the demolition and are facing charges in a criminal trial, have said one thing in their public statements and completely contradicted themselves in the court,” it said.

A news portal, which carried out a sting, claimed that the The 1992 Babri Mosque demolition was an “act of planned sabotage” and not by frenzied mob of Hindu outfits. The “confessions” named BJP leaders L K Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharti and others for “secretly planning” out the demolition in an elaborate way.

The party said that sting operation confirmed the role of BJP and Sangh Parivar in Babri demolition.

“The sting operation has confirmed the widespread belief that the demolition was a pre-planned conspiracy by the various affiliates of the Sangh Parivar and top BJP leadership had a direct role in the entire incident,” the statement added.

AAP also attacked the Congress for allegedly helping the Sangh Parivar in the act.

“It also nails the Congress, whose central government led by the then Prime Minister the late PV Narasimha Rao, was not only aware about the conspiracy to demolish the Mosque, but also appears to have helped the Sangh parivar in its nefarious designs by abetting the unpardonable crime.

“The Congress, which has always avoided answering its role in the demolition, should come out clean on the role of its central government in 1992,” the statement added.
