"The house of God was demolished in the name of God", said Jaspal Singh, senior counsel who appeared for Yakub Abdul Razak Memon, who was given death penalty in relation with the case.
The SC bench of Justice BS Chauhan and P Sathasivam were told that it was the narrow-mindedness of the ideology had led to the wipeout of the Babri Masjid in 1993 and Golden Temple's sacrilege in 1984.
The court was told that atleast 100 people were convicted in the case, that included 23 who were acquitted, 12 who were awarded death sentences and 44 accused who are still on the run.
"The judgment is trash. It has no legal sanctity. It is no judgment in the eyes of law," said Jaspal Singh over the trial court judgement of Jul 27, 2007 that giving punishment to the accused was nothing but trash.
The court was also told that Yakub Memon who worked as a chartered accounted had a blooming career. He came back to India to face trial as he had faith in the country's judicial system and believed that he had done nothing wrong.
The senior counsel however, wondered why someone who had a good life abroad would come back to the country to a stand trial.
"The truth of the matter is that the prosecution has not been able to explain why he came back from Dubai. The truth of the matter is that he was very confident of the Indian judiciary,"said Jaspal Singh to the court.
