All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief and Hyderabad Member of Parliament Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday said the Muslim side would not concede any mosques to the Hindus, and asserted that they would wage a legal battle in courts.

In an exclusive conversation on TV, Owaisi spoke about the ongoing court case over the disputed Gyanvapi complex and the Hindu side's claims over the existence of a temple beneath the mosque.

We are not going to give any masjid, enough. We will fight in courts of law. If the other side wants to do a December 6, we will see what happens. We have been deceived once. We will not be deceived again," Owaisi said.

On December 6, 1992, a violent mob demolished the 16th-century Babri Masjid in Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya.

The Varanasi court ruled last week that a Hindu priest can perform prayers in the southern cellar of the Gyanvapi mosque.

When asked about the possibilities of reaching some kind of settlement in the Gyanvapi case, Owaisi said, "I am categorically saying that it will not end. We will fight it legally, and we will show the courts what documents and title suits we


Furthermore, Owaisi highlighted the continuous offering of namaz at the Gyanvapi site, drawing a contrast with the Babri Masjid case, where the argument centred on the absence of Muslim prayers.

In Gyanvapi, we have been offering namaz. The argument in Babri Masjid case was that you (Muslims) are not praying over there. Here we are praying continuously. In fact, since 1993, no puja has been done," he said.

In response to reports of Hindu structures discovered beneath the Gyanvapi mosque, Owaisi commented, "If tomorrow, we start digging Rashtrapati Bhavan, we are bound to find something. We have been offering namaz at the site for hundreds of years."

Owaisi also slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that Muslims of the country have no confidence left in the Prime Minister.

"I have said this in Parliament, and I am reiterating it over here that as far as Muslims are concerned, we have no confidence left in our Prime Minister. The Prime Minister is discharging his constitutional duties only for one particular ideology," he said.
