Sunni Waqf board files appeal on Ayodhya in Supreme CourtDecember 14th, 2010 - 3:20 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Dec 14 (IANS) The Sunni Central Waqf Board Tuesday filed a special leave petition in the Supreme Court for setting aside the Allahabad High Court judgment on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit. “Our appeal on behalf of Sunni Waqf Board was filed today,” Zafaryab Jilani, the board’s lawyer, told reporters here.
A three-judge special bench of the Allahabad High Court Sep 30 ordered the division of the disputed land in Ayodhya into three equal parts - one for Ram Lalla, one for Hindu sect Nirmohi Akhara and one for the Sunni Central Waqf Board.
Jilani said the board’s plea to the court was that the “building in dispute is a mosque and its possession be delivered to Muslims”.
He added that the grounds for the plea was that the “high court has committed a manifest error in holding that the building be treated as a place of birth of Lord Ram”.
“We have challenged that the suit should not be decided on the belief and faith of one community.”
The high court bench, in a majority ruling, had said the disputed site was indeed the birthplace of Hindu god Ram and the Babri mosque was built after razing a temple at the spot.
