All India Shia Personal Law Board (AISPLB) has said that Muslims would respect the verdict of the Supreme Court on Ayodhya title suit issue and appealed the community to maintain peace.

Favouring initiation of talks between the two communities involved, AISPLB president Maulana Mirza Mohammad Athar said, “The Muslims would respect the verdict as such but initiating negotiations through talks and mediation is a right direction.”

He said the Supreme Court is the last hope for all the parties and people should ensure that peace and communal harmony in the country is not disturbed.
