Thousands of Muslims converge at massive TNTJ rally before Chennai, Madurai HCs to protest Ayodhya verdict

By Nazeer Ahamed


Chennai: The Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamath (TNTJ) held a huge rally and protest in Chennai and Madurai in front of Chennai and Madurai High Court on January 27, 2011, in which lakhs of Muslims participated from all over Tamil Nadu and other states. The rally was held to condemn the unlawful judgement by Allahabad HC in Ayodhya-Babri Masjid case.


In Chennai, the rally started at 11.00 pm, and was led by TNTJ general secretary M. Abdul Hameed. The TNTJ founder P. Jainul Abideen delivered a speech at the rally. In Madurai, the rally started at 11.00 pm, and was led by TNTJ governing body chief Shamshul luha Rahmani. The TNTJ state president P. M. Althafi delivered a speech at the rally.


While delivering his speech in Chennai, the TNTJ founder P. Jainul Abideen said, “Indian Muslim community strongly condemns this (Babri Masjid title suit) verdict which violated laws and standards. We condemn the judges who have given such unlawful verdict. We request the Supreme Court to use its special authority to voluntarily review this injustice verdict.”


“The whole Muslim community feels that this verdict is against the international standards and against Indian Property Rights law. Secularist think tanks have also strongly condemned this kangaroo court-style judgment,” the TNTJ founder said.


He further added: “Judges have noted that Rama was born at the place where the Babri Masjid stood. There are no such provisions in the judicial process of Property Rights Act to decide in the manner the judges have given their verdict. Even if someone was born at a place, there is no such judicial process, neither in Indian Judicial system nor abroad that guarantees the ownership of the birthplace. Such verdict is unlawful.”


“There is no law, neither in India nor abroad, to decide the ownership based on the archaeological findings. Honorable Judges have violated the judicial process. There are no laws in Indian Property Rights Act, to conclude who demolished the building the based on the archaeological findings. Honorable Judges have violated the judicial process here as well,” P. Jainul Abedeen said.


“It is not the duty of the honorable judges to conclude that whether Ram temple existed or not, and they did. Honorable Judges do not have the rights to hypothetically conclude that Babar demolished the Ram Temple. Court has to look at the ownership documents, and they do not seem to have cared about that. Who has been enjoying the property has to be taken into consideration in the verdict. It is a well known fact that Muslims had owned the property for about 450 years from 1528AD. This fact has not been factored into the verdict,” he said.


The TNTJ chief said, “Laws have been violated one after another, and this is a historic injustice against minorities, which is first of its kind. Hindutva organizations have earlier claimed that “courts cannot decide in this matter”, but they themselves unusually asked the people to remain calm after the verdict, which has put the credibility of the Indian judicial system at stake. Indian and International Muslim community strongly condemns this verdict which violated laws and standards. We condemn the judges who have given such unlawful verdict. We request the Supreme Court to use its special authority to voluntarily review this injustice verdict.”
People from 15 districts came to Chennai for the protest.


Thousands of Muslims surrounded the High Court of Chennai, the roads were blocked completely, and thousands of vehicles were parked all over the city due to the massive. The rally and protest ended at 1pm in Chennai and 2pm in Madurai. Thousands of Muslims participated in the rally from all over Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Maharashtra.

  1. Alhamdullilah. The massive crowd is not because of money, power and something else. It is by the people who is brothern by doctorine of thowheed and by iman & taqwa. It has been graced by allah for worthy people. If the people around india who feels them to be muslims can be made as the same if they will & wish to be so, by god.

  2. Alhamdulillah, it was a peaceful protest. May be Insha Allah Supreme court would listen to this request.

    Its a good show of strength, we do not sit quite for injustice.

    May Allah help us to get a justice in this case.
