Gujarat elections: Why Congress is linking Ram Mandir to polls, asks Modi

  • Kapil Sibal argued the case in Supreme Court as a Congress

Sibal, who is also a senior advocate representing the Sunni Waqf Board in the dispute, told the court that its next hearing in the case should be postponed until 2019, after the Lok Sabha elections take place.

PM Modi welcomed the stance of Sunni Wakf Board that the case should be redressed in a time bound manner.

Another party to the case, Haji Mehboob said he also wanted early disposal of the matter and did not approve of Sibal's stand.

The Supreme Court yesterday deferred hearing in the case for February 8, 2018.

Modi, who was back on the campaign trail in poll-bound Gujarat on Wednesday, added that he would not remain silent on the triple talaq as the issue is for the right of women.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi unleashed a tirade against Sibal and Congress over "the cause of the Muslim community" and suggestion "to stop the hearing of Ram temple (issue) in the name of elections".

Kapil Sibal appeared in Babri Masjid title suit in Supreme Court.

"I want to question the Congress Party and explain if it wants the Ram Janmbhoomi matter to be heard at the earliest or not", he asked.

Union Law Minister Ravishankar Prasad said Kapil Sibal gave an irresponsible statement in the Supreme Court yesterday.He said Kapil Sibal must not forget that he has been the former law minister of the country.and he should give his arguments responsibly in sensitive cases. I was never a Sunni Waqf Board lawyer.

"As the representative body (of Muslims), the board endorses and confirms the said statement of the counsels made in court", it said in a statement. The chairman of the body, Zufar Ahmed Farooqui said Sibal wasn't the board's lawyer and that Mehboob himself was not a member of the board, "but an individual party to the matter". Indeed, even in this instance, Sibal, Rajeev Dhavan, and Dushyant Dave were appearing for the litigants, and the Waqf Board could be backing off now because it doesn't want to be embroiled in a controversy, said a lawyer appearing for one of the litigants on condition of anonymity.

"Now Congress links Ram Mandir with elections. The prime minister should decide if he is giving any direction to the Supreme Court?"
