Ayodhya issue: AIMPLB says it sticks to earlier resolutions

10 February 2018

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Friday rejected a compromise formula presented by Maulana Salman Nadwi, one of its prominent members, on the peaceful resolution of the Ayodhya dispute. Maulana Nadvi made the statement during a meeting with Art of Living founder Sri SriRavishankar.

Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute is a century old point of a tussle between the Hindus and Muslims. The meeting lasted for three hours. The next meeting will be held in Ayodhya in March. However, the bench wondered what role non-parties or intervenors had in a land dispute which was between the parties to the original title suit before the Allahabad HC. The court declined the request of Sunni Central Waqf Board for a day-to-day hearing while allowing parties to the case to file English translations of vernacular texts relied by both sides in two weeks before the next date of hearing on March 14. The Bench directed the Registry to make available copies of two video cassettes to advocates for various parties on payment of actual cost.

The bench, also comprising justices Ashok Bhushan and SA Nazeer, said it will deal with the instant matter as a "pure land dispute" and indicated that impleadment applications of those which were not before the high court will be dealt with later.

As many as 14 appeals have been filed in the Supreme Court against the Allahabad High Court ruling on four civil suits on September 30, 2010.

The dispute before the court was whether the 2.7 acres of disputed land on which the Babri Masjid stood before it was demolished on December 6, 1992, belongs to the Sunni Central Waqf Board or to the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha. On December 5, feverish arguments were raised by three senior advocates - Kapil Sibal, Dushyant Dave and Rajeev Dhavan - seeking adjournment of the case to July 2019, that is after the next general elections.

The hearing assumes significance as the top court had on December 5 past year rejected vehement submission by senior lawyer and Congress leader Kapil Sibal and others that the pleas be heard after the 2019 general elections.

To another lawyer, who was representing 32 activists and wanted to implead in the matter since they were "very concerned about the outcome of the case", the bench said "applications for impleadment and intervention shall be considered at the appropriate time".
