AIMPLB Meeting at Mumtaz College Lucknow

Lucknow: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) after a meeting held in Lucknow Sunday decided to file a petition asking the Supreme Court of India to review its verdict on Babri Masjid title suit pronounced on November 09.

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) also rejected the 05 acres of land offered by the Supreme Court to build a mosque in Ayodhya.

The Supreme Court had on November 09 granted the ownership of the 2.77 acres of land where Babri Masjid stood till December 1992 in Ayodhya to the Hindus, paving the way for the construction of a Ram Temple, and ruled that the Muslims will get 5 acres of land at an alternative site.

The apex court clarified that either the Central government can give the five-acre land to the Sunni Waqf Board from the nearly 68 acres of land which it had acquired in 1993 under the Acquisition of Certain Area at Ayodhya Act or the state government could hand over the piece of land at a "suitable prominent place in Ayodhya".

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) meeting was earlier scheduled to be held at Nadwatul Ulema in Lucknow. It was however shifted to Mumtaz College in the city.

"The Ayodhya verdict is full of contradictions", Qasim Rasool Ilyas, Zafaryab Jeelani and Umrain Mehfooz Rahmani said in a joint press conference Sunday.

Among others who attended the meeting were AIMPLB General Secretary Mohammad Wali Rahmani, Jamiat Ulema Chief Arshad Madani and AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi.

"No one can exchange a mosque land with alternate land", the Muslim panel said while rejecting the 05 acres land offered by the Supreme Court of India.

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) said the Supreme Court in its verdict has observed that the masjid was not built demolishing any mandir. "Yet it handed over the mosque land to other parties. Its surprising".

About the date to file the Review Petition, All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) said, "Within 30 days, as per the SC rule. Our lawyer will remain Rajeev Dhavan."
