After 75 years, Sunni Waqf Board may now remove Babri Masjid’s name from its listed properties

The Sunni Central Waqf Board will also discuss whether to take the 5 acres land as accorded in the SC's order or not. The chairman has spoken in the favour of taking the land the government is ordered to offer them.

The Sunni Waqf Board has initiated the process to remove the name of Babri Masjid from its listed properties. As per a report in Amar Ujala, the Sunni Central Waqf Board has called a meeting of all 8 board members at Lucknow on 26 November to discuss several issues.

As per reports, the Sunni Central Waqf Board’s registers have more than 1 lakh 23 thousand properties listed. The board lad listed the Babri Masjid as one of its properties 75 years ago in 1944. The now-demolished Mosque was reportedly registered as ‘Babri Masjid, Ayodhya, District Faizabad’ in the board’s documents. The board is to consider the removal of its mention as one of its properties.

Review petition

The Sunni Central Waqf Board has planned to discuss several issues in its November 26 meeting. Among these will be the discussion on whether the Board will accept the Ayodhya verdict by the Supreme Court or will consider filing review petitions. However, Board chairman Zafar Farooqui had already stated earlier that he won’t file any review petition.

Whether to take the 5 acres or not

The Sunni Central Waqf Board will also discuss whether to take the 5 acres land as accorded in the SC’s order or not. The chairman has spoken in the favour of taking the land the government is ordered to offer them.

What to build on those 5 acres

The board will also deliberate on what to build on those 5 acres of land if they take it. As per reports, some board members are in favour of building a hospital or an educational institution along with a Mosque on the land.

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board had earlier stated that it will not accept the SC verdict and will proceed to file a review petition against it. However, legal experts have stated that the proposed removal of Babri Masjid’s name from Sunni Waqf Board’s documents is a mere formality and even if the AIMPLB or Muslim petitioners do proceed to file review petitions, the process will not be affected if the Board removed the Masjid’s mention from its documents.
