Mahmood Madani raises doubt over Sunni Waqf Board's move to change counsel in Ayodhya case

Lucknow, Sep 18 (UNI) The Jamiat Ulema Hind (Mahmood Madani faction) has voiced concern over the sudden change of the counsel in the Supreme Court by the Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board pleading in Ayodhya title suit case.

The Jamiat Ulema demanded from the Sunni Waqf Board to maintain transparency in its affairs and refrain from entering into secret deal with the government or the opposite parties in the matter.
The state president of the Jamiat Ulema Hind Maulana Matinul Haq Kasmi said here on Wednesday that "even as the Supreme court is hearing the Ayodhya title suit on daily basis, the sudden change of counsel in the apex court by the UP Sunni central waqf board raises serious doubts on the integrity of the Waqf board’’. He said the action of the Sunni waqf board has led to the doubt in the minds of common people that the Waqf board has cut some secret deal.
``If out of court settlement of the dispute through mediation is possible we will welcome that but the muslims will never accept the resolution of the dispute through a secret deal with the RSS and its affiliate organisations’’, said Maulana Kasmi. He also demanded from the Sunni central waqf board to efficiently pursue the matter in the Supreme Court.
Maulana Kasmi said the Jamait has full faith in the institution of judiciary and rule of law prevails in India where everybody irrespective of caste and religion can approach the judiciary and place his view point before the court.
Maulana Mehmood Madni, president of the Jamiat Ulema Hind recently held long meeting with the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat at Keshav Kunj in Delhi on August 30, a day before the draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) of Assam was published.
“It was a completely non-political discussion between two non-political organisation leaders. Bhagwat Ji listened to what I had to say on the current situation in the country and I am happy that he agreed to most of the things,” Madani had said after the one and-a-half-hour meeting.
Maulana Madani later downplayed the significance of the NRC saying ``it has affected both Hindus and Muslims and there was no controversy over that issue’’. Maulana Madani had also supported the Narendra Modi government's decision to abrogate the article 370 and division of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union territories. Maulana Madani asserted that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and the parliament is a sovereign body competent to legislate on Jammu and Kashmir.
Maulana Mahmood Madani is the son of late Maulana Asad Madani. After his death in 2004, the Jamiat was split in two factions –one led by Mahmood Madani and other led by his uncle Maulana Arshad Madani.
