No locus standi: Appeal by intellectuals to surrender Ayodhya land as ‘goodwill gesture’ categorically rejected by Muslim Law Board

The Supreme Court had earlier asserted that it would be difficult to question the faith of Hindus with regard to Ayodhya as the birthplace of Lord Ram as even some Muslim witnesses have termed it as sacred for the Hindus as Mecca is for them.

The Muslim Law Board has rejected the appeal made by the ‘intellectuals’ regarding the long-continued Ram Janmbhoomi case. An appeal that was made by the intellectuals to surrender the Ayodhya land as a ‘goodwill gesture’ cut no ice with the Muslim Law Board. The Muslim Law Board made it amply clear that it is in no mood to relinquish the claim on the Ayodhya land.

With no mutually acceptable solution in sight, some prominent Muslim intellectuals, including former vice-chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University Lt. General (retd) Zamiruddin Shah and former chief secretary of UP Anees Ansari urges the Muslim side offer to surrender their claim on the disputed land. However, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) categorically rejected their request.

The suggestion to voluntarily hand over the disputed land to Hindus was proffered by the group called ‘Indian Muslims for Peace’ claiming that the out-of-court settlement in the protracted Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi dispute was the only solution that could be agreeable to both Hindus and Muslims.

The national executive meet of the AIMPLB is scheduled to happen on October 12 in Lucknow in which the board’s official stand on the possibility to surrender the claim on the 2.77 acres disputed land in Ayodhya is to be deliberated. However, even before the important meeting before the hearings get over in Supreme court, the board’s member and its spokesperson Zafaryab Jilani has asserted that they are not predisposed towards giving up the claim on the land.

Jilani said, “Board remains unmoved by any such demands. Those giving suggestions of the surrender of claim have no locus standi in the case. The talks between the two sides have failed to break the imbroglio and we are assured of the arguments placed before the honourable Supreme Court and look forward to the much-awaited verdict.”

The Muslim board has maintained its stance as per the resolution was taken in its previous meeting. The board in its previous meetings had already passed a resolution that’s since the mediation talks have not fructified as per expectations, they would accept the apex court’s verdict in the case.

The Supreme Court had earlier asserted that it would be difficult to question the faith of Hindus with regard to Ayodhya as the birthplace of Lord Ram as even some Muslim witnesses have termed it as sacred for the Hindus as Mecca is for them.
