New Delhi, Oct 1 (PTI): Remnants of demolished Hindu temples were used to build the Babri Masjid, Justice Dharam Veer Sharma of the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court has held and cited evidence provided by the ASI to support the findings.
"On the basis of circumstantial evidence, historical accounts, gazetteers 361 and other epigraphical documents, it is established that after demolishing the temple the disputed structure was constructed as a mosque and even pillars of the old temple were re-used which contained the images of Hindu Gods and Goddesses against the tenets of Islam," he said in his judgement yesterday.
"Thus, the circumstantial evidence totally contradicts the assertion of Muslims. I have already referred the oral evidence, adduced by the parties in Annexure No.5. I conclude that the oral evidence led by Muslims is not trustworthy."
