UP Sunni Central Waqf Board not to file any review petition on Ayodhya matter

Lucknow, Nov 9 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board, one of the main litigants in the Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit dispute, on Saturday welcomed the Supreme Court verdict and said it has no plans to challenge it and file review or curative petition against the apex court judgement.
"We welcome the Supreme Court verdict in the case. The Board has no plans to challenge it," he said. "As of now, the verdict is being studied thoroughly, after which the Board will issue a detailed statement. "If any lawyer or any other person says claiming to represent the muslim side has nothing to do with the stand of the Sunni central waqf board’’, Board Chairman Zufur Farooqui said.
Minutes after the Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya land dispute was announced, Zafaryab Jilani, the secretary of the All India muslim personal law board (AIMPLB) and convenor of the Babri Masjid Action Committee had said that the board respects the Supreme Court judgment. Zafaryab Jilani, but "not satisfied" with the judgment, which ruled in favour of Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas.
Zufar Farooqui said in a press conference here on Saturday that , "I, as a chairman of the UP Sunni Central Waqf Board, want to make it clear that the UP Sunni Central Waqf Board will not go in for any review of the apex court's order or file any curative petition, hence any statement in this regard by any individual, lawyer or an organisation which mentions that the UP Sunni Central Waqf Board will go in for a review is not our line."
Zafaryab Jilani had also said in Delhi that , "The Ayodhya verdict has a lot of contradictions. We will seek a review as we are not satisfied with the verdict."
Jilani, however, later clarified that the press conference was organised by the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) and he had reacted as its secretary and not as the counsel for the Sunni Waqf Board.
Speaking on the issue of allotment of five acres of alternative land to be given to the Board for the construction of a mosque, Farooqui said, “We welcome and respect the verdict of the Supreme Court. We will consult with the Board members about where to seek the land and then decided further on the issue.”
Farooqui also said the Board was grateful to the court for setting aside the "erroneous observation of one of the judges of the Allahabad HC in its 2010 ruling, which diluted the provision of the Places of Worship Act, 1991".
The Board had last month proposed withdrawing claim on the disputed land with some conditions in the national interest. The Supreme Court, in a unanimous verdict on Saturday, paved the way for the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya, and directed the Centre to allot a 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque.
The Sunni waqf board on October 16 during the hearing of the case in supreme court had filed an affidavit that it is willing to drop its appeals in the matter and its claims to the land on which the Babri Masjid stood, provided the Centre is willing to guarantee that all other places of worship in India will be protected from similar encroachment.
