Ayodhya case: Shia Waqf Board said – Mosque can be made away from the disputed site

New Delhi: In the Ramjanmabhoomi Babri case, the Shia Waqf Board has filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court and according to the judgment of the Allahabad High Court in 2010, it belongs to one-third of the land, not Sunni waqf Board. According to them, this mosque was made by Mir Banki, which was a Shia. According to the Shia Waqf Board, they can also leave the claim on the disputed site, if the government gives them the place to make such a mosque in another place. A mosque can be made in a Muslim-dominated area far away from the disputed land. The Shia Waqf Board said that there will be quarrels on the day of the construction of both the temple and mosque on the disputed land.

Shia Vs Sunni
The Shia Waqf Board has told the Supreme Court in its affidavit that the Sunni Waqf Board does not seek peace in a complete way. All parties can settle this issue by sitting together and the Supreme Court give them time in it. A high-level committee should be formed for this, in addition to the Supreme Court’s retired judge, two retired judges of the High Court, Prime Minister’s Office, and other office bearers of the Chief Minister’s Office.

Shia Waqf Board had earlier also had a party in the Allahabad High Court, although the high court did not lodge a plea for a detailed plea. When the matter reached the Supreme Court in 2011, the Supreme Court issued a notice to all the parties. This affidavit came in response to the same notice.

High Court Decision

In fact, the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court had ordered the division of 2.77 acres of land to the three parties in 2010 in the decision of the Janmabhoomi dispute. The High Court had ordered the land to be divided equally in Ramlala Vihar, Nirmohi Akhara, and Sunni Waqf Board. Against the High Court’s decision, all the parties have filed appeals in the Supreme Court which are pending for the last six years. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court had stayed the High Court’s decision.
