NEW DELHI–More than 25 social activits belonging to different organisations, who had assembled at Mandi House to take out a march up to Jantar Mantar to demand punishment to those involved in illegal demolition of the Babri Masjid, were detained by the police and kept at Mandir Marg Police Station.
The march was organised by Lok Raj Sangathan (LRS). LRS has been organising the protest every year on the anniversary of Babri Masjid demolition on December 6 to demand punishment to those involved in pulling down the 15th century mosque in Ayodhya. The Supreme Court in November 2019 allotted the Babri Masjid land for Ram Temple and asked the government to allot five acre land to Central Sunni Wakf Board for reconstruction of the Babri Masjid. SC, however, declared that demolition of the mosque on December 6, 1992, was illegal and criminal.
Sub Inspector of Mandir Marg Police Station Naresh Bhatia told India Tomorrow, “We detained 25 people from Mandi House because they had no permission to take out a rally. They wanted to go to Jantar Mantar. They will, however, be released after a few hours”.
Raghvan Srinivas, Birju Naik, Prakash from Lok Raj Sangathan, Arif Akhlaq, Shabnam Khan Sufiyan, Azeezur Rahman, Umar Daraz From Welfare Party of India, Mohd Shafi, Mohd Amir, Mohd. Faizan from SDPI were detained during the protest.
