Sunni Central Waqf Board to decide on five acres of land: Zafaryab Jilani
Lucknow, 05 February: With the announcement of the formation of a trust by the central government for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya, the Uttar Pradesh government has issued a letter of allotment of land to the Sunni Central Waqf Board.
The Muslim side has reacted to the decision to allot five acres of land for the mosque to the Sunni Central Waqf Board.
Advocate Zafaryab Jilani as senior member of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) and Babri Masjid Action Committee has not justified the grant of five acres of land.
Jilani made it clear that only the Sunni Central Waqf Board has to decide on five acres of land, as they have got the land.
He said in a statement that no other land can be taken or given in lieu of mosque land. It is not correct if we believe in Islamic Sharia and law.
While fighting for the Babri Masjid, he has already refused to take the land and will do so further. If the land is being given to the Sunni Central Waqf Board, then the next decision is in their hands. Whether they take the land or not.
He said that if he had got the mosque in Ayodhya, he would have welcomed the same land. The All India Muslim Personal Law Board has not been in favor of taking land already.
Supreme Court has resolved the issue
Sunni religious teacher Maulana Khalid Rashid Farangi Mahali said that the Supreme Court has resolved the years-old issue of Babri Masjid and Ram Temple. At present, land has also been found for the mosque.
UP Sunni Waqf Board welcomed
Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board Chairman Zafar Ahmed Farooqui has welcomed the announcement of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s five-acre land for the mosque in Parliament. At the same time, the Uttar Pradesh government has issued a letter to the Sunni Central Waqf Board to allot land.
