Sunni Board to challenge Babri verdict in SC

LUCKNOW: (AMN) The Sunni Central Wakf Board on Tuesday decided to challenge the Allahabad High Court verdict on the Ayodhya title suit in the Supreme Court. The Board said no person had been authorised to explore possibilities of an out-of-court settlement.

Speaking to mediapersons, chairperson of the board Zafar Ahmad Farooqui said that the board had called an emergency meeting  after some reports in the media claimed that Muslims were not interested in pursuing the matter in the Supreme Court.

At the  meeting it was decided that the Board would move the apex court against the Allahabad high court verdict. Frooqui however said that the board has authorised him  as the chairperson of the Sunni Waqf Board, to participate in any settlement meeting so that all avenues remain open. “No other organisation has been allowed to speak on behalf of the Board”, said clarified.

Board counsel Zafaryab Jilani, who would continue to represent the board and may be assisted by another senior counsel, said that he is already in the process of preparing the petition and it would be filed in the Supreme Court by the end of the this month or latest by November first week.

Meanwhile, responding to the board’s decision to approach the apex court, the oldest surviving petitioner Hashim Ansari said that he would continue his effort for an out-of-court settlement till his last breath.
