Once a masjid, till eternity that will be masjid, says AIMPLB

Hyderabad: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board today said there is no change in its stand on the Ayodhya issue as “once a masjid is built, till eternity that will be a masjid”.

AIMIM president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi, who is also a member of the board, briefed reporters tonight on the proceedings of the second day of the 26th plenary of the board here.

Presidential address was given by AIMPLB president Maulana Rabey Hasni Nadvi in the morning session followed by an address by general secretary Maulana Wali Rehamani, he said.

“About Babri masjid, it was clearly said that once a masjid is built, till eternity that will be a masjid. There will be no compromise. As far as the Babri masjid is concerned, the people who compromise on the masjid issue will be answerable to the Almighty,” Owaisi said.

The president and the general secretary also said in their addresses that the triple talaq bill proposed by the NDA government is not acceptable to the Muslim community, Owaisi said.

“Both of them in their addresses have said that triple talaq bill which is now pending in the Rajya Sabha is not acceptable to the Muslim community because it is against the Constitution. It is against the constitutional provisions which were given to the minorities,” he said.

Earlier today, the board, in a press release, had quoted general secretary Rehamani as saying that the AIMPLB was ready for negotiations based on “fair justice and equal honour”, though it also believed that a mosque, once built, remains a masjid forever.

The 26th plenary meeting of the board is underway here since yesterday.

Art Of Living (AOL) founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar had held a meeting in Bengaluru with Muslim leaders including members from the AIMPLB and the Sunni Waqf Board on 8 February.

After the meeting, the AOL had said some eminent members of the Sunni Waqf Board, the AIMPLB and others met Ravi Shankar and expressed support for an out-of-court settlement of the Ayodhya dispute and “supported the proposal of shifting the mosque outside to another place”.
