Sunni Waqf Board will not file review petition against Ayodhya Verdict, to decide on land offer later

The board has reportedly put off the decision on whether to take the 5-acre land to be offered by the government as per court order. The board will wait for the options from the government.

The Sunni Waqf Board has decided to not file a review petition against the Ayodhya verdict pronounced by the Supreme Court earlier this month.

Finally putting an end to the decades-long dispute, the apex court had ordered in favour of the Hindu litigant parties, granting the Ram Janmabhoomi site to the trust to be appointed by the central government for the building of a Ram Temple.

The Sunni Waqf Board had held its meeting today at Lucknow to decide on important issues and future course of action after the verdict. The decision was reportedly taken after much deliberation and with a 6:1 majority.

Chairman Zafar Farooqi had earlier stated that he does not wish to file a review petition.

In a historic move, the Supreme Court had on November 9, 2019, given its verdict in the long-awaited title case of Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, ruling unanimously that a temple be constructed at the Ram Janmabhoomi site.

The Apex court had also ordered the union government to provide 5 acres of land at an alternate site at a prominent location in Ayodhya to the Sunni Waqf Board as a compensation.

The Sunni Central Waqf Board was also to discuss whether to accept the 5 acres land to be offered by the government or not. As per reports, the board has put off the discussion and has stated that they will deliberate it after the land options are provided by the government.

Following the verdict, many prominent Muslims welcomed the Supreme Court’s verdict, while several others expressed strong disapproval of the same. AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi couldn’t stomach the fact that the court has finally ordered the construction of a Ram Temple at the Ram Janmabhoomi site where the Mughals had destroyed a previously existing temple.

With the aim of whipping up a frenzy among Muslims of India, Asaduddin Owaisi continued his harangue against the verdict saying, “I want my masjid back”. Many other ‘liberal-secular’ elements had also exhorted the principal litigant Sunni Waqf Board to file a review petition.
