UP Shia Waqf Board asks for Ram Mandir construction in Supreme Court


UPSCW chief Waseem Rizvi had said that now that he has been authorised by the board to pursue the matter afresh he would be moving the civil court in Faizabad as well as the Supreme Court in the matter soon.

The board in its affidavit added that if both temple and mosque are constructed at the disputed land then it would lead to regular confrontation that should be avoided. The board said that it is fine with constructing the mosque at a reasonable distance from the most sacred place of birth of Maryada Purshottam Sri Ram.

The submission from the Board came days ahead of the scheduled hearing in the highly vexed case in the Supreme Court from August 11.

The Shia body has also sought setting up of a committee for exploring an amicable resolution of the vexatious issue.

"By saying Muslims the High Court obviously meant Shias since the High Court rejected the claim of the Sunni Board that Babri Masjid was a Sunni Waqf".

The Board mentioned in its plea that Babri Masjid belonged to Shia Waqf. Thus the claim of Sunni Board stood negated that it was a Sunni Waqf.

Shia Central Waqf Board recently took a decision to demarcate the dilapidated Babri Masjid site at Ayodhya, which marks a turning point in the Ayodhya dispute.

Justices Ashok Bhushan and Abdul Nazeer are the other members of the bench, which would adjudicate the dispute over ownership of Ram Temple-Babri Masjid land.

In 2010, the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court ordered a three-way division of the disputed 2.77 acres area at the Ram Janambhoomi-Babri masjid site in Ayodhya.

Chief Justice J.S. Khehar said if the parties want him to mediate, then he is ready for the task. At that time, the Supreme Court had said that the case would be tagged with the appeals and heard in due course.
