Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

Before the Supreme Court’s decision on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case of Ayodhya, Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind president Maulana Arshad Madani has said that Muslims will accept whatever the court decides but added that the Babri Masjid was a mosque in the eyes of the law as there was a mosque for nearly 400 years. “So, according to the Sharia, it is still a mosque and will remain a mosque until qayāmat (Judgement Day).

Arshad Madani said that the Muslims would accept any decision the Supreme Court, provided it is based on evidence and witnesses produced in the case of Ayodhya, as though courts reach judgements on some other basis! However, he hoped that the verdict will go in the favour of Muslims. Madani said that the Babri Masjid case was not only about the land but also the law and customs of the country.

The head of the Jamiat said that those in power could give the mosque any form, but no party or person had the right to withdraw the claim of the mosque and settle for some alternative. “In such a situation, we will accept whatever decision the Supreme Court gives on the basis of evidence and witnesses,” Madani said.

Maulana Arshad Madani expressed concern on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir and the National Register of Citizens (NRC), too. He said that the government should keep the door of dialogue open to resolve the Kashmir issue and address the issue of Kashmiris. He said that the matter of removing Article 370 was in the Supreme Court and it was hoped Kashmiris would get justice.

Madani said on the issue of NRC that he “condemned” the statement made by Home Minister Amit Shah in Kolkata that, except Muslims, citizenship would be given to everyone. He said that the home minister of the country should not give such a statement. “No one should be discriminated against on the basis of religion,” the Jamiat head said.
