Lucknowites welcome Court’s historic move

Lucknow: People from all sections of society on Saturday welcomed the historic Supreme Court verdict on Ayodhya title suit case hoping that the matter will be resolved once and for all.

“I welcome the judgement of the Supreme Court. I have already clarified that the apex court is supreme and whatever decision it takes will be welcomed. As far as 5 acre land for the construction of a mosque goes, we will have a meeting and discuss whether to accept it or not,” All India Shia Personal Law Board member Maulana Yasub Abbas told ANI. Shia Waqf Board chairman Syed Waseem Rizvi also welcomed the verdict and said that Supreme Court has also accepted that the mosque in Ayodhya was built by Mir Baki and not by Babar.

“I welcome the decision to give the entire disputed land to Ramjanam Bhumi Nyas. It is worth mentioning that the court in its decision accepted that the mosque in Ayodhya was built by Mir Baki and not by Babar. This has always been our claim,” Rizvi said.

The common people in Lucknow also welcomed the verdict.

Viewpoint: Shia Waqf Board chairman Syed Waseem Rizvi also welcomed the verdict and said that SC has also accepted that the mosque in Ayodhya was built by Mir Baki and not by Babar.

Humbly accept SC’s decision

The UP Sunni Central Waqf Board on Saturday welcomed the Supreme Court verdict regarding the Ayodhya land dispute case and made it clear that it will not go for any review or file any curative petition against the same.

“We welcome and humbly accept the verdict of the SC. I, as chairman of the UP Sunni Central Waqf Board, want to make it clear that the Board will not go in for any review of the order or file any curative petition, hence any statement in this regard by any individual, lawyer or organisation which mentions that Board will go in for a review is not our line,” said Zufar Faruqi, Chairman, UPSCWB. “We are grateful to SC for setting aside as ‘erroneous’ the observation of one of the Judges of the Allahabad HC (2010), which diluted the provisions of the Places of Worship Act 1991,” Faruqi added.
