On Wednesday, the Shia Central Waqf Board said that if the Sunni Central Waqf Board does not wish to accept the five-acre land granted to the Muslim side by the Supreme Court, then it will claim the plot and build a hospital there.
Reportedly, Waseem Rizvi, the Chairman of the Shia Central Waqf Board said that they have passed a resolution that if Sunni Waqf Board refuses to accept the 5-acre land that is promised by the Supreme Court to build a mosque then they will file a petition in the Supreme Court asking them to allocate the land to Shia Waqf Board.

Waseem Rizvi said Shia Waqf Board will build a hospital on that 5-acre land where people from all religions will be treated free of cost.
Shia Central Waqf Board chairman Waseem Rizvi also stated that after a board meeting today they have decided that they will not go for a review of the apex court’s verdict in the long-pending issue.
“Shia Waqf Board believes that whatever decision the Supreme Court has taken is final and in the national interest, therefore there is no need to escalate the matter by filing a review petition. Muslims of the country have welcomed the Supreme Court’s decision. Shia Central Waqf Board does not agree with the All India Muslim Personal Law Board’s decision and it’s also not part of the AIMPLB,” they said in a statement.
Meanwhile, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has decided to file a review petition in the Ram Janmabhoomi, Ayodhya case. Earlier in the day, the AIMPLB said that they will ‘exercise their constitutional right’ and file a review petition in the Ayodhya case during the first week of December.
They also said that the decision of the Sunni Waqf Board not to file a review petition in the case will not affect the AIMPLB legally. Earlier, the Sunni Waqf Board had decided against filing a review petition in the Ayodhya case.
In a historic judgment on November 9, the Supreme Court had established that the Hindus have a right on the entire 67-acre Ram Janmabhoomi and ordered the construction of a Ram temple by a government trust at the disputed site in Ayodhya. It had also granted an alternate 5-acre land to the Muslims to build their Masjid in the Hindu holy town.
