Key parties in Ayodhya issue to move SC

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI/LUCKNOW, Oct 9 � The All India Muslim Personal Law Board and Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, key parties to Ayodhya title suits, today appeared set to move the Supreme Court against the Allahabad High Court verdict, even as some litigants are exploring possibilities of an amicable solution, reports PTI.

�We will file an appeal against the high court order in the apex court by the end of this month,� ABHM�s UP president Kamlesh Tiwari told PTI. He said the Mahasabha was firm on its stand not to allow division of the land in three parts.

The legal committee of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board also favoured approaching the Supreme Court against the verdict in the Ayodhya title suits.

The committee, which held a four-hour meeting in New Delhi deliberated at length and recommended that the Supreme Court should be moved against the decision, AIMPLB sources said. The committee�s recommendations would be taken up in the executive committee meeting of the board in Lucknow slated for October 16, sources said.

�The 51-member executive committee meeting in Lucknow, later this month would decide whether the board should back the Sunni Central Waqf Board which had been contesting the case from the Muslim side in the high court or whether it (board) should get involved directly,� AIMPLB sources said.

The committee decided that a team of lawyers be constituted to study it thoroughly for preparing the ground work, sources said adding that it has also recommended hiring a senior Supreme Court lawyer.

To a question, sources said that the committee did not encourage moves at resolving the issue through reconciliation.

The Mahasabha also said it would be ready for a discussion only on the condition that the Sunni Central Waqf Board withdraws its claim on the land.

The Sunni Waqf Board has already announced that it will move the apex court against the HC verdict.
