Vedanti claims he and not Advani asked karsevaks to pull down Babri mosque


Faizabad/New Delhi, Apr 21 (PTI): Ram Vilas Vedanti, a former BJP MP and an accused in the Babri mosque demolition case, today claimed it was he and not the BJP patriarch L K Advani who incited the frenzied karsevaks to pull down the disputed shrine.

"I demolished and got demolished the disputed structure, the ruin that stood there. The accusations against L K Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia are wrong," he said.

Vedanti's remarks came two days after the Supreme Court resurrected the conspiracy charge against Advani, Joshi and union minister Uma Bharti in the Babri Masjid demolition case.

Vedanti said, in fact, Advani, Joshi and Scindia even took the microphone from him and tried to persuade the karsevaks to come down from atop the structure and leave. They even made the plea in English, he later told a TV news channel.

Vedanti said he, Mahant Avaidyanath, also a former BJP MP, and VHP leader Ashok Singhal exhorted the karsevaks to raze the disputed structrue. Both Avaidyanath and Singhal are now dead.

He told India Today TV channel he was prepared to be "hanged" for the cause of Ram temple.

When asked was his claim an effort by him to "derail" the trial against BJP veterans, Vedanti said," I have spoken about this earlier too."

    When he is very much sure, he will get "Clean Chit", what can't he take blame on him and become Saint for Bhakths?

    Can our mighty Supreme Court send dead people to Prison???...

    Some of our SC judgements are very InteResting....will be followed by World Court...even World Court does not appoint their own judges like our SC does...We are one step ahead of World Court....

    Former Nagaland CMs death note should be printed in a book form and should be distributed to all judges, lawyers and law-students of India...so all know how great our judiciary is...

    ...JH...
