All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi, reacting to the Ayodhya verdict, said that he is not satisfied with the Supreme Court's judgment. Calling the 5-acre land a donation, he said that the Supreme Court, despite being supreme, is not "infallible."

“We have full faith in the constitution, we were fighting for our right, we don’t need 5 acre land as donation. We should reject this five-acre land offer, don’t patronise us.”

Owaisi also took a dig at the Congress party. He said that the Congress has shown its true colours. He also blamed the grand old party for placing a Ram idol in Babri Masjid in 1949, a catalyst in the rise of Hindu nationalism in the country.

“Congress has shown their true colours. But for the Congress party’s deception and hypocrisy, idols would not have been placed in 1949. Had the locks not been opened by Rajiv Gandhi, the masjid would still be there. Had Narasimha Rao discharged his duties, the masjid would still be there.”

Owaisi added that those who demolished the Babri Masjid have now been asked to form a trust and start the construction of the temple. "Just by begging on the roads of Hyderabad, I will collect enough money to build a mosque in UP. We are fighting for our rights. No need to patronise us," he said.
