The All India Muslim Personal Law Board has accused the Congress-led UPA government of not being serious on the Babri demolition-related criminal cases.

AIMPLB assistant secretary general Mohammad Abdur Rahim Quereshi told on Friday before the board’s three-day conference that the slow progress in the cases handled by the CBI in Rai Bareli and Lucknow courts indicated the government’s attitude.

He said the board would specially discuss the report of the Liberhan Commission, which probed the demolition of the Babri mosque in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992, and the communal violence Bill.

Quereshi said although the commission had proved conspiracy behind the demolition, the Centre was yet to include the charge. He said the Centre’s role during the demolition should also be probed.

Addressing the opening session, board chairman Maulana Mohammad Rabe Hasni Nadvi said government interference in Madarsa education wouldn’t be tolerated.

He said the proposal for setting up a central Madarsa board was against the interests of the community, despite the board having taken various measures to improve the education system.

Quereshi said although the women’s reservation Bill was important for the community, the board would not discuss it.
