The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has criticised Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, for talking about a possible Syria-like situation in India, if the Supreme Court judgment in Babri Masjid case went in favour of Muslims.
In a letter to Ravi Shankar, the Board also rejected his proposal that Muslims should give up claim on Babri Masjid land voluntarily.
Earlier, Sri Sri in a letter to Board had asked to resolve the Babri Masjid issue through dialogue and hand over the land to Hindus. He had also warned that if Supreme Court decided the verdict in favour of mosque then anarchy and bloody attacks will spread throughout the country.
Responding to Ravi Shankar letter AIMPLB’s wrote: “We had hope from you that you would come up with a formula that would be as per justice and law, and on the basis of which you would invite concerned parties to table. If you had done so, Muslim Personal Law Board would have positively responded to your initiative. But we are sad that instead of doing it, you have long been demanding Muslims to give up their right. It is obvious that it was not acceptable and practicable earlier, nor is it today.”
The letter written by AIPLB’s general secretary Maulana Mohammad Wali Rahmani also urges Ravi Shankar to accept the final verdict of Supreme Court without instigating people.
Ravi Shankar had earlier said that the Hindu majority would not accept any verdict that goes against them.
