Shia Waqf Board blames Congress and Muslim radicals for delaying Ram Temple case

Speaking with the media, the chairman of the Shia Waqf Board Waseem Rizvi accused Congress and other Muslim fanatics for politicising the issue.

The Central Shia Waqf board in Uttar Pradesh has blamed Congress party and Muslim radicals’ dilatory tactics responsible for the delay in the verdict on a Ram Temple in Ayodhya.

Speaking with the media, the chairman of the Shia Waqf Board Waseem Rizvi accused Congress and other Muslim fanatics for politicising the issue. ”Due to some radical Muslims and politics of the Congress party, the issue of construction of the Ram Temple is stuck in courts,” he said.

Concurring with the 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict, in which the court apportioned the disputed land equally among the three principle litigants- the Shia Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla, the Shia board has often taken a stand at odds with the majority Muslim view. Last year, the board expressed its approval of a grand Ram Temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya. On Monday, Rizvi reiterated a somewhat similar sentiment.

Rizvi asserted that the God who decides the fate of mankind in the whole world is today waiting for a human court to decide on his own abode. “This is a matter of shame for all human being all across the world,” he said.

Hearing on the much-vexed issue of Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid, the Supreme Court said on Monday that it would fix in January 2019 the date on which final hearing of the dispute would commence. The constitution of the three-judge bench that will hear the case will also be decided in January. This pushes back the chances of a verdict before the 2019 general elections causing a chorus of an ordinance to grow.
