Ansari has been fighting in the Babri Masjid case since 1959 and is one of the oldest petitioners.

He was quite unhappy over people politicizing the Babri Masjid Case for their own benefits. Also, after the demise of VHP leader Ashok Singhal last year, Ansari said that it was the greatest loss for the Ram Mandir movement.
