Hashim AnsariLucknow. The oldest litigant in Babri Masjid-Shri Ram Mandir case, Mohammad Hashim Ansari, has declared that he doesn’t want to pursue the matter any further and wants ‘Ram Lala’ (infant Ram) to be free.

Expressing unhappiness over the politicisation of the case, Ansari, who has been fighting the case since 1959, said he will not attend any protest meeting on Dec 6 to mark the anniversary of ‘Babri Masjid demolition’.

Speaking to the mediapersons, Ansari said that the people who are reaping political benefits are staying in bungalows whereas ‘Ram Lalla’ is living in a tent. “I want to see ‘Ram Lalla’ free,” Ansari asserted.

Criticising Uttar Pradesh Minister Azam Khan for calling Ram Janambhoomi “a dead issue”, Ansari took a dig at him and said that from now on Khan will pursue the case and not him. He also accused Khan of playing politics over the issue.

Last month Khan had said the Ayodhya issue was “almost dead” as a “temple already exists there” and alleged that the BJP wanted to keep it alive to vitiate the atmosphere.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Hashim Ansariwelcomed Ansari’s decision saying that it’s time that talks should be held and a bigger Ram Mandir should be constructed on the site.
