Remember, you will not be able to snatch another mosque.”

You told the Supreme Court that you will not touch the mosque but you demolished the mosque. Most importantly, no one broke the mosque. Not a single person was punished.”
The AIMIM chief elaborated, “As per the 1991 law, you cannot do this. The Supreme Court has ruled that this law is a part of the basic structure of the Constitution. You go to Qutub Minar and Mathura. You go to implement the law. are in government.”
