The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), on November 17, said that it has decided to file a review petition in the Supreme Court of India against the Ram Janmabhoomi case verdict.

According to the reports, the AIMPLB after holding a crucial meeting on Sunday decided to challenge the Supreme Court order by filing a review petition on the Ram Janmabhoomi judgement that was delivered by the top court on November 9.

“We have decided to file a review petition in the SC. Since the SC, in its judgement, said that the mosque was not built by demolishing a temple, still the mosque was not given to us. So, we will file a review petition and ask for what is rightfully ours,” said Arshad Madani of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind. He also said that though they are sure the review petition will be thrown out, one must be filed.

Reportedly, the AIMPLB has also decided to reject the 5-acre land which was promised by the Supreme Court as compensation. The AIMPLB contended that once a Mosque was built at a spot, it remains there and Shariat does not allow for anything to be accepted in lieu of the same.

The decision was taken after the Jamiat’s highest decision-making body, the working committee, gave permission to file a review petition following extensive deliberations involving lawyers and experts.

On November 9, in a historic judgement, the Supreme Court had ordered handing over of the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri masjid land to the Hindu parties, making way for Hindu devotees to have a grand Ram Mandir at the birthplace of Lord Ram.

The court had ordered for the construction of a Ram temple by a government trust at the disputed site in Ayodhya and ruled that an alternative five-acre plot must be found for a mosque in the Hindu holy town.

Earlier on Saturday, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) held a brainstorming session with different Muslim parties over the Supreme Court verdict in the Ayodhya case in Lucknow.

The decision to file a review petition comes a week after the UP Sunni Central Waqf Board had welcomed the Supreme Court verdict on the Ram Janmabhoomi case. The Sunni Waqf Board had made it clear that it will not file any review or curative petition against the same.

On Friday, the Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind (JuH), a key Muslim litigant in the Ayodhya title suit, had taken a similar position, stating that they will not be accepting the 5-acre alternative land for building a mosque as mandated by the Supreme Court.

The working committee of Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind had met in Delhi on Thursday, declared that nothing would be acceptable as an “alternative” to a mosque, be it money or land. Jamiat had not ruled out the possibility of going for a review of the Supreme Court verdict.
