Ahmedabad: Vishwa Hindu Parishad President Pravin Togadia on Wednesday demanded that the Centre approach Supreme Court's larger bench on the Babri Masjid conspiracy case and a new law to facilitate construction of the Ram temple at Ayodhya.
Togadia was reacting to a Supreme Court order for the trial of senior Bharatiya Janata Party leaders L.K. Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharati, and others, for criminal conspiracy for the destruction of the 16th century Babri Masjid in Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh in 1992.
"Lakhs had reached Ayodhya, and lakhs do not reach a place on the word of one person. It cannot be a conspiracy," Toghadia told reporters here, demanding that the Centre approach a larger bench of the Supreme Court on the matter.
He questioned the intent of the Central Bureau of Investigation that approached the apex court after the conspiracy charges against the accused had been quashed by the Allahabad High Court in 2010.
"The CBI has insulted 100 crore Hindus by going to the Supreme Court," he added.
