The U.P. Sunni Central Waqf Board will not go in for a review of the Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya land dispute or file a curative petition, chairman of the Board Zufar Farooqui said. 

“We are grateful to the honourable Supreme Court for setting aside as ‘erroneous’ the observation of one of the honourable judges in the Allahabad High Court (2010), which diluted the provision of the Places of Worship Act, 1991,” Mr. Farooqui said.

 

“If any lawyer or any other person says that the decision will be challenged by the Board, it should not be taken as correct,” he stressed. 

Unjust, says AIMPLB 

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), meanwhile, said the verdict “neither provided equity nor justice” and that it might consider filing a review plea after deliberating on the issue.

 “The judgment is not satisfactory, we feel that it’s very unjust. The inner courtyard where prayers were offered was given to the other side. Neither equity nor justice has been served,” Zafaryab Jilani, SC advocate on behalf the Muslim parties said. Mr. Jilani is also secretary of the AIMPB and had fought the case in the Allahabad High Court and also in Supreme Court.

 

“Yet it’s the judgment of the SC and, therefore, we respect it. We will take to appropriate legal course available to us. We may file a review petition in the case. But the final decision has not been taken yet,” Mr. Jilani added. He said from an initial reading of the judgment, there were many contradictions and apparent errors.

Navaid Hamid, president of All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat, an umbrella body of several Muslim organisations, appealed for peace and harmony. 

Expressing surprise over the ruling, he said, “It is a matter of concern that evidences have not been proved.”
