AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday reacted to the Supreme Court’s verdict on the Babri Masjid case, quoting former Chief Justice JS Verma to say the Supreme Court was “indeed supreme, but not infallible”.
Owaisi took to Twitter and simply posted the book cover of ‘Supreme But Not Infallible: Essays in Honour of the Supreme Court of India.’

Nearly an hour before his post, he retweeted the All India Muslim Personal Law Board’s tweet, which quoted its general secretary reaction to the judgement.
“The judgment is against our expectations. We presented solid evidences to prove our stance. Our legal committee will review the judgment. We have sincerely tried to fulfil our responsibility to restore the demolished,” the tweet read.
During a press conference he gave a couple of hours after the Ayodhya judgment was delivered, Owaisi stated that faith had won over facts.
The Supreme Court today rewarded the disputed Ayodhya land to Hindu parties to build a Ram Temple and directed the Centre to allot a 5-acre plot to the Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board for building a mosque.
“The Ayodhya verdict holds no value for us. We are dissatisfied with the verdict. It has a lot of contradictions. We will seek a review,” the Sunni Waqf board’s lawyer Zafaryab Jilani said after the judgement.
