Union Minority Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid on Sunday asserted that the proposed Waqf amendment legislation will have no adverse impact on the Babri demolition case.

“There are some apprehensions among the Muslim community over the proposed amendments to the Wakf Act,if it would adversely impact the Babri Masjid title case… I have done enough enquiries,including with the Muslim clerics and leaders dealing with the Babri Masjid case,and I can assure you that it will have no impact at all,” Khurshid said,addressing a seminar on the amendments organised by the South Asian Minorities Lawyers Association.

Khurshid’s assertion came in the wake of apprehensions among the Muslims that the proposed amendments would go against the Babri case pending in the court.

In this backdrop,Khurshid also said that the Babri Masjid title was registered under the Wakf Act even though it was not notified. “But this would not affect the (Babri) case,” he asserted. In fact,Khurshid said the proposed amendments would only help better manage the Waqf properties.
