Own Correspondent, TDN World, New Delhi: On Thursday Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind has decided not to file review petition to Supreme Court on Babri Masjid, at the same time maintained that it would not accept the alternative plot as directed by the apex court.
On Sunday, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind has announced along with All India Muslim Personal Law Board to file a review plea against the Supreme Court expressing dissatisfaction over the Babri Masjid verdict. In a major shift, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind today has come to a resolution in the national working committee meeting not to file plea.
While describing the recent Supreme Court verdict over Babri mosque “unjust and overwhelmingly one-sided”, the working Committee also said that since they “considers that filing a review petition will not be fruitful,” they won’t go for a review plea.
The working committee, however did not oppose AIMPLB and other Muslim organisations’ decision to go for a review plea.
” Nevertheless, since several Muslim organizations availing their constitutional rights have decided to file a review petition, Jamiat does not oppose them and hopes that (May Allah forbid) it does not produce any negative effect, ” Jamiat said in a press statement issued on Thursday.
The working Committee meeting was held under the presidentship of Maulana Qari Mohammad Usman Mansoorpuri.
The Committee has passed three resolutions. One on the protection of Wakf Properties.
Expressing its total disbelief on the current Wakf board, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, said, ” In the Babri Mosque case, the chairman of UP Sunni Wakf Board has played a role of Mir Jaafar for the Muslim of India.”
The Working Committee of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind also wants to replace the present Wakf board set up.
The Working Committee of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind has decided to constitute a committee comprising of four persons that includes advocate Shakil Ahmad Sayyad, Maulana Niaz Ahmad Farooqui, Hafiz Peer Shabbir Ahmad, Haji Mohammad Haroon and Hafiz Nadeem Sidiqui.Haji Mohammad Haroon and Hafiz Nadeem Sidiqui have been made the convener of the committee.
Raising allegation against the existing Wakf board committee, Jamiat said ” due to undue interference of the central and state governments, the care-takers of wakf properties take decision that bears harmful effect upon the Muslim community. ”
The Working Committee also passed resolution regarding mosques controlled by Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).
“The Working Committee of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind vehemently demands from the government to open and allow the Muslims to offer prayers in mosques controlled by ASI which are undisputed. They should be opened forthwith for the prayers so that the mosques should remain thronged by the worshippers of Allah Almighty,” reads the press statement.
