Reacting to Supreme Court's verdict on Ayodhya land dispute, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday said he 'wants his masjid back'.
In an interview to Outlook magazine, Asaduddin Owaisi said he will oppose anything that is against India's Constitution and pluralism. "For me, the Constitution is supreme and it gives me the right to disagree respectfully with any SC judgment. I will oppose anything that is against the Constitution," he said.
Asaduddin Owaisi said, "Our fight was not for a piece of land. It was to ensure that my legal rights are realised. The SC [Supreme Court] also categorically said that no temple was demolished to construct a mosque. I want my masjid back."
The Hyderabad MP tweeted on Friday, "I want my masjid back."
The Supreme Court on November 9 cleared the way for the construction of a Ram temple at the disputed site at Ayodhya and directed the Centre to allot a five-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque.
After the verdict, Owaisi tweeted a picture of a book about the Supreme Court: "Supreme But Not Infallible."
