Big push towards Ram Mandir resolution in Ayodhya



Rizvi said that the Board would appeal to the Yogi Adityanth government to allot one acre land of Hussainabad Trust in Lucknow for the construction of mosque which will be named as Masjid-e-Aman.

The Shia Waqf Board on Monday proposed a Ram Temple at the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid Complex and a mosque in Lucknow as part of its proposal for an out of court settlement of the dispute.

In August, the Shia Board moved the Supreme Court claiming that the 15th century Babri Masjid was a Shia waqf (endowment) and the Sunnis, who have been at the frontlines of the 70-year-old Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute, were mere interlopers led by "hardliners, fanatics and non-believers" who do not want an amicable settlement with the Hindu sects involved.

"It has been amicably decided that no new mosque will be built in Ayodhya or Faizabad".

He said that this formula would ensure and amity between the two communities and in the country. Off late, the Board has made a decision to not only make a claim over the Masjid but also suggest a solution.

Reacting to the Shia Waqf Board formula, Mr Jilani said that they were not even a party to the dispute as yet and hence, the formula was meaningless.

Shia Central Waqf Board chairman Syed Waseem Rizvi revealed that the proposal was prepared after discussions with all stakeholders.

Rizvi said that the Hindu parties in the dispute would have complete control over the site and they could construct a grand temple. He also pointed that Babri mosque was always under a Shia Mutwalli, a descendant of Meer Baqi who constructed the Babri mosque in 1528.

Rizvi had claimed that as the Sunni Waqf Board had lost the case of its registration in several courts, only the Shia Waqf board had a right to the mosque.

All India Shia Personal Law Board also rejected the new formula of Shia Waqf Board for an out-of-court settlement of the dispute. "Muslims will only abide by Supreme Court judgment in the case", said Ansari.
