On Friday, two Ayodhya residents moved Allahabad High Court challenging a special CBI court ruling that led to the acquittal of all thirty-two accused including BJP leaders like Murli Manohar Joshi LK Advani.
The petition was filed by Haji Sayyad Akhlaq Ahmad and Haji Mahboob at Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court, on behalf of All India Muslim Personal Law Board
Counsel for the petitioner stated that they moved the High Court after the CBI did not appeal against the accused.
The acquittal order came in last year, twenty-eight years after the mosque in Ayodhya was razed. Senior BJP leaders were accused of inciting the mob.
In its judgement which was 2300 pages long, the Court concluded that there was not enough evidence against the accused.
