The AIMIM said, “But for Congress party's deceitness and hypocrisy, idols would not have been placed in 1949, had the locks not opened by Rajiv Gandhi the masjid would still be there.” He also questioned the then PV Narsimha Rao government’s intentions in stopping the crowd from demolishing the Babri Masjid in 1992. He said, “Had Narasimha Rao discharged his duties, the masjid would still be there.” Expressing dissatisfaction over the verdict, Owaisi said that the Supreme Court is supreme but not infallible. Ayodhya Case Verdict: Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas Gets Possession of Disputed Site, Sunni Waqf Board to be Given 5-Acre Alternative Land.
