Jamiat to ask for Ayodhya verdict review on symbolic 6 Dec

Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said the Jamiat and AIMPLB were trying to create an 'atmosphere of division and confrontation'

Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind will file a review petition on the Supreme Court verdict in Ayodhya case, which went in favour of Ram temple construction, on 6 December, the 27th anniversary of the demolition of Babri Masjid. The petition will be filed on behalf of Jamiat’s Uttar Pradesh general secretary Maulana Syed Arshad Rashidi who was one of the 10 petitioners on the Muslim side in the Ayodhya case.

After the Jamiat took the decision yesterday, Rashidi spoke to the media today, saying, “The work of documentation is almost complete. Our legal team is drafting the review petition. It needs some days to finalise the details.”

Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind’s UP general secretary said that the first part of the Supreme Court’s verdict in the Ayodhya case was ‘contradictory’ to the remaining part. He said, “Our humble plea is that the Supreme Court explain every contradiction. The court has also admitted that the mosque was not built by breaking a temple and that the act of demolishing the mosque in December 1992 was illegal. Despite this, the court handed over the land to the other party. How is this possible?”

On 17 November, Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind had announced that they would exercise their “constitutional right” to review the judgment of the Supreme Court. They had said the verdict was neither based on the evidence before the court nor was it justified by any logic.

The 100-year-old Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind had filed a review petition against the Allahabad High Court judgment on Ayodhya in 2010 as well.

Not only Jamiat but also the All India Muslim Personal Law Board is filing a review petition in the Supreme Court whereas the main Muslim litigant, the Central Sunni Waqf Board, has decided against it. Before these Muslim parties to the Ayodhya dispute had made their decision, 100-odd well-known Muslim personalities had appealed to the leaders of the community not to appeal against the verdict. Doing so, they opined, would unnecessarily keep the issue lingering.

Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi has said the Jamiat and the AIMPLB are trying to create an “atmosphere of division and confrontation” after the matter was laid to rest by the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, the banned Communist Party of India (Maoist) has called for a nationwide strike on 8 December, opposing the Supreme Court’s decision in the Ayodhya case. Maoist central committee spokesman Abhay has issued a statement saying that the party would protest against the verdict on 6 and 7 December before going on a nationwide strike on the 8th. He has appealed to “secular”, “democratic” and other forces to join his “movement”.
