District court’s judgment ‘clear violation’ of Places of Worship Act purpose: CPM | India News


CPM on Tuesday said the decision of the Varanasi district court in the Gyanvapi Masjid case is in “clear violation” of the purpose of the Places of Worship Act, 1991.
“Wrong interpretations of the law by sections of the judiciary will lead to serious consequences of the kind that the law was meant to prevent. It is no secret that the governing party is hell-bent on a distorted interpretation of history to target minority communities,” CPM said in protest of the decision.
The party went on to reiterate its allegation that a “deeper communal agenda” was at work in attempting to revive this debate. “The claim that present-day mosques were built on sites where temples were destroyed has been a long-standing method to whip up religious sentiments and to use this for a communal agenda,” the CPM polit bureau said in a statement. The party said the 1991 law came into effect to uphold national interest of communal harmony and to prevent a plethora of motivated petitions such as those in Mathura and Varanasi.
