The Foreign Office has expressed concern over the decision made by the Indian Supreme Court in favour of the construction of a temple in place of the Babri Masjid, saying that the historic mosque’s decision failed to meet the requirements of justice.
“We are deeply concerned about the decision of the Indian Supreme Court regarding the Babri Masjid, the decision has once again failed to uphold the requirements of justice,” said Foreign Office spokesman Dr Muhammad Faisal.
He said in his statement that “the United Nations recently pointed out the slow response of the Indian Supreme Court to the human rights request in India-administered Jammu and Kashmir”.
Referring to the UN statement on the occupied Jammu and Kashmir, he said, “This decision came at a time when it was implemented and this decision is insufficient to protect the interests of the Indian minorities”.
Dr Muhammad Faisal said on the decision of the Babri Masjid, “This decision has hollowed out the so-called secular religion of India and made it clear that minorities are no longer safe in India; they are afraid of their beliefs and places of worship.”
“The international community, the UN and other human rights organizations should play a significant role in preventing India from pursuing extremist thinking and protecting the equality of rights and minorities in India,” the Foreign Office statement said. ‘.
Earlier, a five-member Bench headed by Indian Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi issued a verdict on the historic Babri Masjid case, which was martyred in 1992 and ordered to build a Ram temple on the mosque’s land and provide Muslims with alternative land.
