At the beginning of deliberations Hafiz Asrar, a representative of All India Imam Council asserted that a mosques has a sanctified status in Islam and had been that Babri Masjid were build on an encroached land Muslims themselves would have rejected it long back.

The National Secretary of Social Democratic Party of India said that 6 December had become one of the darkest days of secular India and, unfortunately, the Lucknow Bench had, instead of strengthening the secular fabric of the country, powered sectarian conflict in the county by endorsing belief and faith of some people against constitutional authority and rule of law.

Babri Dharna Jantar MandarAbdul Rashid Agwan State convener of the SDPI stated that Ramjanma Bhoomi movement is not a religious movement but a political one and targets power politics in the country. He quoted extensively from the high court judgment and argued that the judicial system has failed to deliver justice to the aggrieved party and bring those to the book who repeatedly broke status quo and caused contempt to the system.

Mohammed Shadab, Muzaffar Nagar, was of the opinion that the assault on Babri Masjid was not on a mosque but on the democratic and secular foundations of the country and demanded that the recommendations of Librans Commission should be accepted and action should be taken against the culprits.

Babri DharnaThe Vice-President of Social Democratic Party of India Advocate Sajid Siddiquee lamented on the rise of political anarchy in the country and quoted former President of India Shankar Dayal Sharma that demolition of Babri Masjid was nothing but a sheer ‘vandalism”. He referred how the blame of the partition of India and events of terrorism had bean labeled against Muslims and the world had gradually come to know that Hindutva forces really responsible for such things. He demanded that the Babri Masjid should be erected on its historic site so that this kind of evil tendencies might be defeated.

Babri DharnaThe representative of Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat Dr Anwarul Islam explained the history of Babri Mosque and derived that Ram temple movement was nothing but an attempt to assault the harmony among various communities. He alleged that Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru the erstwhile Prime Ministry and Govind Vallabh Pundit then the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh were responsible for creating a chronic cancer of Hindu-Muslim conflict in the form of the issue and the subsequent Congress governments carried on the same policy. He also stressed for the assessment of those who led the struggle for the Babri Mosque so far to take stock of their real achievement.

Tasleem Rehamani, President of Muslim Political Council, said the anniversary of the demolition of Babri Masjid use to sadden a large number of Muslims and the community succeeded in achieving nothing but a sordid legacy of Babri Masjid. He correlated different events related to the issue and mentioned that the conspiracy was well planned and hatched long back, even before the partition, in 1946 on the eve of independence. Rahmani was of the opinion that a Brahmincal and secular orders are operating in the country parallel to each other for sustaining a hegemonic rule in the country and the demolition of Babri mosque was an instrument in this regard.

Babri DharnaThe President of Qaumi Party of India Hasnain appealed that nothing could be achieved without sacrifice and the Muslims should remain prepared for it. He expressed that administration is not allowing Muslims to peacefully express their grief and arrested those youths who simply paste posters on the eve of 6 December.

Abdul Wahab Khilji the president of Muslim Islahi Tahrik reminded that Babri Mosque controversy was created to weaken the secular structure of the country and appealed that Muslims should have faith on Islam and themselves and work according to the tenets of Islam in the wake of testing time.

The demonstration was also addressed by Nawabuddeen Nakshabandi Imam of Safderjang Masjid who said that all accepted rights have been gradually denied to Muslims and the community is being cornered to remain content with whatever is given but Muslims should rise up to the time and carve a respectable position in the country by concerted efforts..

Babri DharnaK.M.Shareef, the General Secretary of Popular Front of India, concluded the public address and informed that the PFI resolved to observe Babri Masjid Reconstruction Campaign from 6th December 2010 to 30th January 2011 throughout the country as an awareness drive against the rising phenomenon of terrorism. Shareef remarked that people used to ask Muslims to forget the issue but it was hardly possible them to ignore such a callous injustice of independent India. The day when Babri mosque was demolished there was no Government at all, at least in Ayodhya, and the rule of law hardly existed there, he pointed out. He felt sorry that the report of Librans Commission was accepted without any ATR and demanded that all those who were found responsible for demolition of Babri Masjid by the commission should be taken to task. He went on to say that the country is waiting for the correction of the faith-laden judgment of the Lucknow Bench of Allahabad High Court by the Supreme Court
