Malegaon: While the Sangh Parivar welcomed the order of the Supreme Court (SC) in the Hubli Idgah Maidan case, Anjuman-e-Islam has said, it will abide by the court ruling,  according to The Hindu.


The ruling came yesterday after the Anjuman had appealed against a High Court (HC) verdict in the apex court.


Reacting on the judgment, President of Anjuman-e-Islam M.A. Savanur said that its appeal had been quashed and so also the appeal on the customary rights of the Hindus.


"The Supreme Court has delivered the order keeping in mind the sensitive nature of the issue and we would abide by it," The Hindu quoted Anjuman President.


“The Supreme Court has delivered the judgement and we have to obey it", The Hindu quoted former Minister and former president of Anjuman-e-Islam Jabbar Khan Honnalli.


Supreme Court advocate B.Y. Kulkarni, who appeared on behalf of the public with regard to their customary rights over the land, said that the Supreme Court had upheld the High Court’s order, which ruled that HDMC was the owner of the land and it was only a licence to pray on Id twice in a year for a period of 999 years.


Meanwhile, MP for Dharwad Pralhad Joshi, who was among the participants in the movement to hoist the national flag at Idgah Maidan during the 1990s while talking to The Hindu over telephone said, “It is the happiest moment in my life. Since 1993, I have been supporting the cause. The Supreme Court has issued a very clear order and there is no scope for confusion."


"Now that the court has upheld the ruling that the land belongs to Hubli-Dharwad Municipal Corporation, it is left to the corporation to take further steps after allowing the Idgah Maidan for Muslims for prayers twice a year", he added.


According to the report, Hubli Mayor Veeranna Savadi termed the verdict as a victory of the people of the twin cities. He said the corporation would take steps as per the direction of the Supreme Court on the Idgah Maidan issue.


In yet another development reported by The Hindu, Members of Hindu organisations, mainly RSS, celebrated “Vijayotsava” at Hutatma Chowk in Deshpande Nagar, by bursting crackers and distributing sweets.


Addressing the gathering, RSS leader Sudheer Nadgir said following the Supreme Court order the HDMC authorities should take steps to hoist the national flag at the maidan on Republic Day, says the leading South Indian Daily.
