AIMPLB: Won’t give anyone ‘land of Babri Masjid’

While the AIMPLB expressed satisfaction at the way Rajeev Dhavan was arguing the Muslim case for Ayodhya, the temple demolition theory they refused to believe in is supported by archaeological findings whose authenticity the advocates for the Muslim party to the dispute have accepted

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has denied any compromise outside the court in the Ayodhya land-title case aka Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case. The executive committee of the AIMPLB met in the capital of Uttar Pradesh on Saturday.

A press release was issued after the meeting chaired by Mohammad Rabey Hasani Nadwi. It said that the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case could not be decided outside the court. According to the AIMPLB, the legal process, in this case, is in its final stage. The “land of Babri Masjid” will not be given to any opposition party, the release says.

The AIMPLB said that not only the country but the world community also were observing the court proceedings. Notwithstanding the archaeological findings, the board said that the mosque was not built over the debris of any temple. The board expressed satisfaction with the advocacy of Muslim parties in the Supreme Court by Rajeev Dhavan.

Ironically, on 26 September, after questioning the ASI report in the Supreme Court in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case, the Muslim side had reversed its stand and apologised for expressing doubt over the scientific finding. Rajeev Dhavan, advocate for the Muslim side, had apologised for questioning the report of the Archaeological Survey of India before the constitutional bench of five judges hearing the case.

The AIMPLB expressed confidence that the court’s decision would be in favour of the Muslim parties.

The case is being heard daily in the Supreme Court. Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi has asked both the parties to complete the debate in this case by 18 October. The CJI is retiring in November. In such a situation, there are speculations that a decision will be taken in this matter before he retires.

The AIMPLB seized the opportunity to express its well-known opposition to the Uniform Civil Code (UCC). The Personal Law Board said that a uniform civil code is a “threat to the diversity” of the country. If the court and Parliament were to try to implement a UCC, it would be opposed tooth and nail.

The board said further that the constitutional validity of the triple talaq law will be challenged, too.
