“SC judgement on Ayodhya not Satisfactory”: AIMPLB’s Jafaryab Jilani

“We will file a review petition if our committee agrees on it,” AIMPLB member Zafaryab Jilani said.

NEW DELHI| On Saturday as the Supre Court gave its verdict on the long-awaited Ayodhya Case (Ram Janam Bhoomi and Babri Masjid) the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) said they respect the verdict but are not satisfied with the Judgement. The board added that it would evaluate legal options, like filing a review petition.

Zafaryab Jilani of the Babri Masjid Action Committee said at a press conference, “We are yet to discuss the matter within our executive committee, but we might file a review”.

Masjid Babar ki Nahi Hoti. Masjid banne ke baad, woh Allah ki ho jaati hai (a mosque can’t be Babar’s. Once it is constructed, it is Allah’s),” he added. “Hamara Babar se lena dena nahi hai. Hamne toh bola hai ki aapko Babar se problem hai, toh masjid ka naam Ram masjid rakh dijiye (We have nothing to do with Babar. We have said, if you have a problem with Babar, name the mosque after Ram),” He said.

Jilani appealed to people of all communities to maintain peace and not protest against the judgment.

The statement was reiterated by Saadat Ullah Hussaini, president of the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, an organisation of Muslim scholars and clergy, who was also present at the press conference. “We are not fully satisfied with the verdict. But we appeal to the entire nation to accept the verdict, and maintain unity and peace,” he said.

The Supreme Court Saturday ruled that the central government would set up a trust in three months to help build a Ram temple at the disputed 2.77-acre site in Ayodhya. The Muslims, the court said, should be given five acres of land elsewhere in Ayodhya to construct a mosque.

The Sunni Waqf Board would get the alternative plot from either the state or the central government, the court further said.
