Defer SC decision on Ram Temple till after LS poll in 2019: Owaisi

New Delhi: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief Asaduddin Owaisi today demanded deferment of the Supreme Court’s verdict on the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi title suit till after the Lok Sabha polls in 2019 as the issue will get “heavily politicised”.

Speaking during a panel discussion on ‘Ayodhya: The Politics of Hate’ at the India Today conclave in Mumbai, Owaisi said the Ayodhya dispute was over land and had nothing to do with religious faith.

“The 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 Court’s decision. However, the issue should not be decided before the parliamentary elections as it will be heavily politicised,” Owaisi said.
