Chennai, Dec 6 (UNI) Thousands of activists of Tamil Nadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam (TMMK) courted arrested when they attempted to lay siege to the Court complexes across the state demanding early pronouncement of the verdict in the Babri Masjid demolition case.
Various Muslim outfits organised demonstrations and fasts to mark the 15th anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition and police made elaborate security arrangements across the state to prevent any untoward incident.
Police sources said more than 600 TMMK workers, led by its President Jawahirullah, were arrested in the city when they attempted to barge into the Madras High Court complex demanding action against those involved in the demolition.
Stating that cases were filed against senior BJP leaders L K Advani and Uma Bharati, he said even 15 years after the structure was demolished, the court was yet to pronounce its verdict.
Similar agitations were held in various parts of the state, including Dindigul, Madurai, Coimbatore and Krishnagiri, where thousands of TMMK workers were arrested.
All the arrested would be released later.
Other Muslim outfits like Tamil Thowheed Jamaath (TTJ), Indian National League (INL) and Tamil Maanila Muslim League (TMML) staged protest demonstrations condemning the demolition.
