In the December of 1992, when the Babri Masjid was demolished, the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP), then in the Opposition, rode piggy-back on the more rabid Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP)- Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) combine, and even participated, and celebrated the demolition of the Babri Masjid. Today, the Allahabad High Court judgement of September 2010 is pending in appeal before the Supreme Court and the BJP is in power at the Centre, with a brute majority.
Today, in 2015, 23 years later, despite the pendency of the sensitive case in the Supreme Court, the VHP-RSS combine are now openly making moves to build a temple at the site of the crime (bricks are being brought and collected there) , where the Mosque was demolished. The BJP, their parliamentary wing, is in positions of Constitutional power.
Are the actions of the VHP-RSS in bringing bricks to build a temple at Ayodhya acts of unlawful provocation?
Is this not a clear contempt of the judicial process, a defiance of the rule of law?
