New Delhi: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) called for a meeting on Sunday to decide on the review petitions filed against the Supreme Court’s verdict in the Ayodhya case. The meeting convened by AIMPLB secretary Zafaryab Jilani at Lucknow’s Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulema seminary is underway, stated a report.
On November 16, the Muslim board conducted a brainstorming session with various Muslim parties on the Supreme Court verdict in the contentious Ayodhya case. The Muslim parties later met the AIMPLB general secretary Maulana Wali Rahmani and informed him about the issue at hand, stated news agency PTI. AIMPLB secretary Zafaryab Jilani called for a review meeting after the Muslim parties approached him to inform that the Supreme Court decision is ‘not understandable’ to them.
Last week, the Supreme Court had unanimously paved way for Ram temple construction at the disputed site in Ayodhya. Besides, the apex court directed the Centre to allot an equivalent five-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for the purpose of constructing a mosque.
Soon after the judgement was pronounced, AIMPLB slammed the SC verdict and said the board was contemplating on whether or not to go for a review of the Supreme Court’s verdict in the Ayodhya case. Calling for a meeting on the issue to be convened on Sunday, Jilani had mentioned that the Muslim parties did not want to accept the five-acre land proposed by the Supreme Court towards building a mosque.
