Ayodhya case judgment not as per expectations, may file review petition
New Delhi : The Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board said they are unsatisfied with the verdict of Supreme Court on Ayodhya land dispute case. 2.77 acres of the disputed land has been given for the construction of a Ram temple and an alternate five acres of the land has been allotted for the construction of mosque.
The board addressed a press conference and said they will be holding a meeting to go through the judgment thoroughly and the will decide if a review petition is to be filed or not.
"We think it is unjust... We can't consider this justice. We are not criticising all parts of judgment," said Zafaryab Jilani, the lawyer for the Muslim group.
Talking specifically about the inner courtyard, he said, "Giving all land to the other side is unjustified. We respect the top court, we have a right to disagree with the verdict. The top court has changed judgement in many cases. We have a right to seek review".
Explaining its decision to grant the disputed site for a temple, the court had said the Archaeological Survey of India has found evidence that the 16th Century mosque of Mughal Emperor Babar was not built on vacant land.
"On balance of probabilities, the evidence in respect of the possessory claim of the Hindus to the composite whole of the disputed property stands on a better footing than the evidence adduced by the Muslims," the judgment read.
