LK Advani

Archival footage, eyewitness and reporter accounts of what happened on the days leading up to and after the demolition of the Babri Masjid.
Meanwhile, BJP leaders welcomed the verdict and tweeted 'Jai Shri Ram'.
The verdict, delivered almost 30 years after the destruction of the Babri mosque in Ayodhya, has acquitted Bharatiya Janata Party veterans LK Advani, Murali Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharati.
Here's how those accused in the Babri demolition case reacted after their acquittal.
"No one demolished Babri Masjid? We all saw visuals from an alternate reality?" asked a Twitter user.
The court said there wasn't enough evidence to say the demolition was pre-meditated.
Uma Bharti and Kalyan Singh are in hospital being treated for the coronavirus, while LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi have reportedly sought an exemption from appearance in court.
The accused in the case include senior BJP leaders such as LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti.
"We are here because of him," Uma Bharti said, reacting to the Supreme Court's verdict on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title case.
Advani said the scrapping of Article 370 has been a part of the BJP’s core ideology since the days of Jan Sangh.
She was referring to Advani’s statement that the BJP never considered those who disagreed with it politically as “anti-national” or “enemies” but only as adversaries.
While Advani seems to be reprimanding Modi and Shah for what the BJP has become, it’s worth remembering that he is no better himself.
The veteran BJP leader said that his party never regarded those who disagree with it politically as “enemies”, but only as "adversaries".
This comes just days after BJP patriarch LK Advani was dropped from the party's list of candidates.
State BJP leaders had demanded that party chief Amit Shah contest from Gandhinagar, a BJP bastion.
Amit Shah will fight from Gandhinagar in place of veteran leader LK Advani.
The two leaders were in Parliament for an event to pay tribute to the martyrs of the 2001 Parliament attack.
The mosque, built in 1528 during Babur's rule, was demolished on 6 December 1992, triggering massive communal riots.
The SC wants to know how the judge will complete the trial within the April 2019 deadline.
His ‘Kashmiriyat’ comment could work against him, if BJP history is anything to go by.
