LUCKNOW, Sept 30 (IANS) - The Allahabad High Court decision on the disputed Ayodhya site has opened up a "chance for reconciliation" between Hindus and Muslims of India, a member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) said Thursday after the verdict.
"I would not like to jump to conclusions right now but there could be a mandir and a masjid existing along side in Ayodhya in the larger interest of the nation. The court has opened up some consensus for us and a chance for reconciliation," Kamal Farooqui told reporters here.
He said India had become a "matured nation" and "we will move forward". But he refused to say whether the ruling favoured Hindu or Muslim groups.
"It-'s too early to interpret the judgment. We are studying it and ultimately the rule of law has to prevail."
A majority ruling of the three-judge bench said the site would be divided into three - one for the Muslims, one for the Hindus and the third for the Nirmohi Akhara.
