Apart from Advani, other BJP leaders Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharti and Vinay Katiyar have also been accused in the conspiracy case. According to reports, Shah called Advani after finalising the BJP strategy to handle the apex court ruling.

Following the demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1992, two separate legal cases were filed. One was against the 'karsevaks' or volunteers who actually carried out the demolition while the second case was filed against senior BJP leaders who addressed a rally before the demolition which allegedly 'instigated' the violence.
