Former Supreme Court justice A.K. Ganguly said Monday the Supreme Court’s judgment in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid cast placed a premium on the demolition of the mosque.

Talking to The Wire he questioned if the mosque was not demolished on December 6 of 1992, would the apex court had ordered for the demolition.

Justice A.K. Ganguly retired from Supreme Court in 2012.

The Babri Masjid was demolished by the Hindutva activists mobilized by Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bharatiya Janata Party. The court on Saturday described the act as an egregious violation of the rule of law and handed the disputed land to the Hindu plaintiffs.

Ganguly adds ironically the court might not have ruled the case in favor of Hindus if the mosque was not reduced to rubble 27 years ago.

He said, “(the verdict) encourages a very unfortunate trend… a totally non-secular trend.”

He further continued that if he was one of the judges in the five-judge bench, he would have directed for the restoration of Babri Masjid or not allow any party to either build a temple or a masjid but to use the land for secular purpose like construction of a college, school or hospital.

The ex-justice argues no evidence was found that revealed a Hindu structure was actually underneath the mosque, but a mosque was there, was vandalized and was demolished is not disputed.

He cited the ASI report was inconclusive and so the court could not have surmised that a Hindu structure was underneath.
