Ayodhya verdict: AIMPLB to file review petition, will not accept 5-acre land

Lucknow: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has decided to file a review petition against the Supreme Court (SC) verdict on Ayodhya issue, while declining to accept the five acres of land.

“We will file the review petition in the Supreme Court and we will also not accept the 5 acres of land to be given to us on the direction of the apex court, as it is against Sharia,” Zafaryab Jilani, Sunni Waqf Board lawyer, told media persons after the meeting here on Sunday.

The decision was taken during the Working Committee meeting of the AIMPLB held here.

‘Masjid remains at the place where it is once built’

“In the Supreme Court verdict, such things have been written that will lead to confrontation with each other. According to Sharia, the Masjid remains at the place where it is once built.

It is not allowed as per Sharia to accept anything in place of Masjid be it land, money or any other thing adjoining it,” said Maulana Rahman while addressing the press conference.

Meanwhile, after attending the meeting of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) over Ayodhya verdict on Sunday, Maulana Arshad Madani of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind said that a review petition against the Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya dispute should be filed.

“Despite the fact that we already know that our review petition will be dismissed 100 per cent, we must file a review petition. It is our right,” he said while speaking to media persons here.
