Muslims should have given up claim to Ayodhya site voluntarily, says SC lawyer Syed Naqvi

"The total area of 2.77 acres on which the Hindus claim Bhagwan Ramji was born is a fraction of the total area of the lands on which lakhs of Mosques, Eidgahs and Dargahs across India are standing today," Naqvi added.

Supreme Court advocate Syed Naqvi on Saturday has written a letter asking Muslims to give up claim on the disputed site in Ayodhya voluntarily and said that a temple should be built at the birthplace of Lord Ram at Ayodhya.

A letter written by Syed Naqvi states, “Before the Christians, the Jews and Muslims came to India for trade, proselytizing and invasions, the inhabitants of the length and breadth of India were Hindus and practised their religion by constructing Temples of Hindu Gods. One of the most revered Hindu God is Bhagwan Ramji. It is the belief of the Hindus that Bhagwan Ramji was born at Ayodhya.”

The letter further reads that it is also a belief of the Hindus that Bhagwan Ramji was born at the site where the Babri Masjid was constructed during the reign of the Mughal ruler Babur. Syed Naqvi wrote that there is no claim that Bhagwan Ramji was born anywhere else in India and in the manner that Hindus do not question the existence of Allah, Muslims have no right to question either the birth or existence of Bhagwan Ramji.

Stating that Muslims can pray anywhere at any Mosques or even at their homes, Naqvi stated, “It is a fact that during about 1000 years of Muslim rule on and in India, Muslims built lakhs of Mosques, Eidghas and Dargahs across the length and breadth of India. Muslims believe that their God Allah is Omniscient and Omnipresent.”

He advised Muslim of the country that, when the original inhabitants of India claim that Bhagwan Ramji was born at Ayodhya at the site of Babri Masjid, Muslims of India ‘voluntarily and unitedly ought to have given up’ the site where the Hindus claim Bhagwan Ramji was born ‘in lieu of the fact that there are other lakhs of Mosques in the State of Uttar Pradesh itself, where Muslims can and continue to pray.

“The total area of 2.77 acres on which the Hindus claim Bhagwan Ramji was born is a fraction of the total area of the lands on which lakhs of Mosques, Eidgahs and Dargahs across India are standing today,” he added.

He further wrote that the Muslims should have filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Supreme Court of India to give up its claim on the 2.77 acres of the ‘Holy Land’ on which Hindus believe Lord Ram was born, for the sake of peace between Muslims and Hindus and as a gratitude to the framers of the Constitution of India for granting and guaranteeing Fundamental Right to Pray, Practice and Preach Islam in India.

Criticising some section within the Muslim community with vested interests, he wrote that a handful of Muslims’ insistence to property rights over this minuscule 2.77 acres of land and their legal fight right up to the Supreme Court of India has jeopardised the lives of Muslims in India, religiously, politically, economically, socially and fundamentally in their daily lives.

He said that Muslims, instead of seeking legal remedy, should have sought a brotherly resolution by voluntarily and unitedly giving up this holy land to Hindu Brothers. “In any way, any claim over the land by the legal representatives of a conquerer is inferior to the right of the prior inhabitants of that land unless the land was acquired by legal means,” he added.

It is notable here that many leaders of the Shia Muslim community have been favouring a Ram Temple at the Ram Janmabhoomi. The Shia Waqf Board has also supported the Hindu side during the title suit.
