The Babri Masjid Action Committee is all set to approach Supreme Court to take the custody of the remains of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya after PM Modi announced the creation of a trust for the construction and maintenance of the Ram Temple. Convener of Babri Masjid Action Committee Zafaryab Jilani said, “The honorable court has considered the demolition of Babri in the year 1992 as completely unconstitutional, so its debris and other construction materials like stones, pillars etc. should be handed over to Muslims. For this, the court will be requested by giving an application. There is no clear order in the court’s decision regarding the remains of the Mosque and in such a scenario, it is feared the remains of the Mosque might be disrespected while removing them from the site.”

Through this petition, a demand will be made that the debris of the Babri Masjid before the construction of the Ram temple be given to them. Senior advocate Rajiv Dhawan will present his side on behalf of the Muslim side. There will be meeting in this regard next week. In December 2019, after the verdict on the Ayodhya case, the Babri Masjid Action Committee spoke of its right over the debris of the Babri Masjid. Zafaryab Jilani, the Convenor of the Babri Masjid Action Committee and a lawyer for the Muslim side, had told the media that “every brick of the mosque is sacred to us.”

He had said at the same time, “Debris of our martyred mosque should be given to us. We will go to the Supreme Court with this demand.” He said that we will safeguard the debris, so that there is no insult to it. Citing a meeting of the Babri Masjid Action Committee, Jilani had said that soon the Babri Masjid Action Committee is planning to knock the door of the Supreme Court on this issue.
