The decision of the Muslim side Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind to file a review petition after the Supreme Court’s decision on the Ayodhya dispute has been strongly criticized by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the Nirmohi Akhara. He has accused the Muslim side of hanging the issue and turning its back on the truth. VHP joint general secretary Surendra Jain said that Muslim parties have never stood by their views in this case. Mahant Dhirendra Das, the head of the Nirmohi Akhara in Ayodhya and Satyendra Das, the chief priest of the Ram Janmabhoomi, called it a ‘conspiracy to spoil communal harmony’ in India. Both saints said that the Muslim side had previously said that it would accept the court’s decision, and that the main Muslim party Iqbal Ansari refused to file a reconsideration petition. The VHP also said that a large section of Muslims was not in favor of any reconsideration petition. According to Surendra Jain, ‘His claim that 99 per cent of the Muslim community is in favor of the reconsideration petition is absolutely false. Young and and educated Muslims are not in favor of any such move and are closely monitoring them.
VHP joint general secretary Surendra Jain said that Muslim parties have never stood by their views in this case.
He added, ‘The Muslim side has always been adopting a policy of hanging the issue and defying the truth in Ayodhya. Although it is his legal right to file a reconsideration petition, it will further hurt his position. The VHP officer said, “First he publicly criticized the order of the Supreme Court and after that some so-called secular people encouraged him to file a review petition in the Supreme Court.” The chief priest of the Ram Janmabhoomi temple said that the Supreme Court should dismiss the petition at the first hearing itself. Explain that a Muslim party filed a review petition on Monday against the Supreme Court’s decision in the Ram temple-Babri Masjid land dispute case of Ayodhya. The petition filed by Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind president Maulana Syed Ashad Rashidi said there were flaws in the decision to hand over the disputed 2.77 acres of land to Ramlala and another 5 acres for the mosque. The court admitted that it was wrong to demolish the mosque at the disputed site, yet land was given to the Hindu party. For complete justice, the Babri Masjid should have been ordered to be rebuilt. Speaking to the media after filing the petition, Maulana Syed Ashad Madani said that if the Supreme Court upholds its verdict on Ayodhya, Jamiat will accept it. At the same time, Muslim Personal Law Board Secretary Zafaryab Jilani said that AIMPLB will file a review petition before December 9 in this case.
