No spillover of Ayodhya verdict in Bangladesh; Sunni Waqf Board of India has issues with ruling

Dhaka, Nov 9 (UNI) Muslim forum of Sunni Waqf Board of India, on Saturday, expressed dissatisfaction with the Supreme Court judgment on the Ayodhya dispute, asserting that the verdict has a lot of contradictions, TV channels reported.
The board’s legal counsel Zafaryab Jilani said that they would seek a review of the verdict by the Indian apex court itself, the reports said.
Foreign minister Dr A K Abdul Momen said the verdict would cause no tension in Bangladesh and wished peace to prevail in India as well.
''We won’t be in any tension regarding this (Ayodhya land dispute verdict), ''he told newsmen after inaugurating the South Asian Karate Championship indu B in the capital.
Momen said, simultaneously,'' We will expect that peace will prevail also in India.''
The minister said the heritage of interfaith harmony in Bangladesh would help keep peace in Bangladesh where all ''of us Muslims, Christians, Hindus and (Buddhists) are living in harmony.
''We will study the verdict (of Indian SC) but we will not be in tension,'' Momen said, declining to comment further as he was yet to go through the verdict.
The foreign minister said that he would request the Bangladesh home minister to be vigilant so that no one can create any tension in the country capitalising the verdict.
This morning, the Supreme Court of India delivered its verdict on the Ayodhya dispute and cleared the way for construction of a Ram Temple on 2.77 acres of land. It directed the Centre to form a trust by the next three months for construction of the Temple at the site.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi while appealing for peace and unity said the verdict will reaffirm people’s faith in judicial process.
In a statement, Indian National Congress urged all concerned to abide by the secular values and spirit of fraternity enshrined in our Constitution and to maintain peace and harmony.
