Lucknow/Faizabad: The contract of Babri Masjid demolition was given to Vishwa Hindu Prishad. Both the American secret agency and an American company were behind the demolition of the Babri mosque and they had paid a huge amount for that. Ayodhya Mahant Yugal Kishore Shashtri made this revelation before the Special Judge Virender Kumar who is hearing the case of the demolition of Babri Masjid. Replying to questions raised by defense lawyer advocate KK Mishra, Yugal Kishore Saran Shastri, the sixteenth witness of CBI said that in the morning of 6 December seeing the mood of kar sevaks it was very clear that Babri Masjid was going to be demolished that day. Yugal Kishor Shastri told the court that when he met the then prime minister Narsimha Rao he was told by Susheel Muni that Vishva Hindu Prishad had taken crores of rupees from the American secret agency and one American company for the demolition of Babri Masjid.
Mahant Yugal Kishor Shashtri had seen saffron terror from close quarters when he was a member of VHP for several years. When Shastri came to know what was the real face of this organization, which was engaged in spreading venom against Muslims and conspirating to divide the country on the pretext of Ram Janam Bhomi movement, he cut off his relations with VHP. When the defense layer tried and insisted on Shastri, who has been working to establish mutual brotherhood, solidarity and integrity of the country and survival of humanity, to say that the demolition of Babri Masjid was the handiwork of some Muslim terrorists and not of VHP people, and that some terrorists stayed at Shastri’s ashram, Yugal Kishor retorted that not a single dubious person had ever stayed at his ashram, but of course some representatives of the Central government had stayed there. Shastri also said that by seeing the dress of people who were present in Ayodhya at that time, one would know who was a kar sevak and who was a common man.
