Chennai: Tamil nadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam (TMKK) conducted dharnas at 42 important cities and towns of Tamilnadu on 6 December, the 18th anniversary of Babri Masjid demolition. The dharnas were conducted to express the displeasure against the Allahbad High Court’s Lucknow bench judgement in the Babri Masjid case which was unconstitutional and against natural justice. The dharnas were organized to raise the following demands: 1. To prosecute 68 persons accused by the Liberhan Commission as responsible for Babri Masjid demolition 2.To expedite the Babri Masjid criminal case pending in the Rai Bralley court 3. To speedily dispose the appeal petition filed against the judgement given by the Allahabad High Court in the Babri Masjid title suit. Prof. M.H.

Large number of men and women participated in the dharna and raised slogans which was conducted amidst torrential rain. Speaking on the occasion Prof. M.H. Jawahirullah said all illegal activities relating to Babri Masjid have happened when Congress was ruling the country. He said prayers were held in Babri Masjid from 1528 to December 22, 1949. He demanded that the demolishers of Babri Masjid should be punished. The Congress party should not take the restraint and decorum exhibited by the Muslim community after the Allahabad High Court’s anti constitutional verdict as acceptance of the Judgement, he said adding that this judgement deserves to be thrown into the dustbin of illogical thrash.
