Despite discrepancies and flaws, the All India Babri Masjid Action Committee (AIBMAC) today made it clear that Muslim community was not opposed to Liberhan Commission report on demolition of Babri Mosque in Ayodhya.

The AIBMAC convenor Zafaryab Jilani told Hindustan Times in Lucknow on Friday that all secular parties should make sincere efforts in Parliament for the proper implementation of recommendations of the report.

“There is no question of rejection of report”, Jilani said, adding action should be quickly taken against those identified in the report.

The All India Muslim Personal Board (AIMPLB) is also going to hold two-day working committee meeting here on December 19-20 to discuss the issue.

He said the action committee members would be submitting memoranda all over the state to district administration on December 6 to press for speedy disposal of the cases. He said communal harmony and amity should be maintained during protest.

Jilani, appealing to the community to peacefully observe Babri demolition day on December 6, said the Congress-led UPA government should expedite the disposal of pending criminal and civil cases connected with Ayodhya dispute. He said for the last three months there was no hearing in civil suit in Lucknow bench of High Court.

With an eye on Muslim vote the Samajwadi Party has also given call for observing December 6 as “black day. The SP has also demanded reconstruction of the demolished mosque.

Jilani said the centre should refer the report to the CBI, which had been looking after the criminal cases in Rae Bareli and Lucknow courts.

“Since the Liberhan report has accepted conspiracy theory, the CBI should reframe this charge against accused including BJP leader LK Advani”, Jilani said and added the CBI should examine the report to further strengthen its two criminal cases. While conspiracy case involving eight Sangh Parivar leaders is pending in Rae Bareli, case against unidentified Karsevaks is stuck up in Lucknow bench of High Court. Jilani said day-to-day hearing should be held to dispose of the cases.
