Pakistan has strongly condemned the shameful acquittal of those responsible for demolishing the historic Babri Masjid in Ayodhya.
Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez said the Hindutva-inspired Indian judiciary miserably failed to deliver the justice again. He said if there was a semblance of justice in the so-called largest democracy, the individuals, who had boasted of the criminal act publicly, could not have been set free.
FO spokesperson said this is yet another manifestation of the pliant judiciary under the extremist BJP-RSS regime in which extremist Hindutva’ ideology takes precedence over all principles of justice and international norms.
He said the willful targeting of Muslims is rampant in today’s India.
He said the BJP-RSS anti-Muslim agenda is most visible in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJK) which remains under continued military siege and the BJP continues to implement its sinister policies to change the demographic structure of the occupied territory.
Zahid Hafeez lamented the attacks by Hindu zealots on places of worship of Muslims that have continued even during the Covid-19 pandemic. Emboldened by the flawed Ayodhya verdict, Hindu zealots supported by their RSS-patrons in power, are now seeking removal of the Shahi Idgah Masjid located next to Krishna Temple in Mathura as well as to give ownership of the entire 13.37 acres of land to the Krishna Temple complex.
The spokesperson said Pakistan urges the Indian government to ensure safety, security and protection of minorities, particularly Muslims and their places of worship and other Islamic sites on which the Hindu extremists and zealots have laid claims.
