The Supreme Court on April 19 revived the conspiracy charges against senior BJP leader, L.K. Advani, Murali Manohar Joshi and the Union Water Resources and River Development Minister Uma Bharti in the Babri Masjid demolition case.

The apex court also ordered that no adjournment would be given under normal circumstances, adding that no judge hearing the case would be transferred.

Earlier on April 6, the apex court reserved its order on whether criminal conspiracy charges should be initiated or not against various Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders in the Babri Masjid demolition case.

The CBI had charge-sheeted Advani and 20 others under Sections 153A (promoting enmity between classes), 153B (imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration) and 505 (false statements, rumours etc. circulated with the intent to cause mutiny or disturb public peace) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

It had subsequently invoked charges under Section 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC, which was quashed by the special court whose decision was upheld by the High Court.

As soon as the news broke, the people on Twitter went crazy and said Advani’s dream of becoming the President has been shattered. Check out the reactions
