New Delhi: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief Asaduddin Owaisi today demanded deferment of the Supreme Courtâ€™s verdict on the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi title suit till after the Lok Sabha polls in 2019 as the issue will get â€œheavily politicisedâ€.
Speaking during a panel discussion on â€˜Ayodhya: The Politics of Hateâ€™ at the India Today conclave in Mumbai, Owaisi said the Ayodhya dispute was over land and had nothing to do with religious faith.
â€œThe Ram temple issue is a land title case. It has nothing to do with faith. It is about the rule of justice and secularism. Each one has to accept the Supreme Courtâ€™s decision. However, the issue should not be decided before the parliamentary elections as it will be heavily politicised,â€ Owaisi said.
