Shia Waqf Board says, Mosque can be built at a distance from Ram Janmabhoomi

New Delhi: Adding a fresh dimension to the case, the Uttar Pradesh’s Shia Central Waqf Board has told the Supreme Court (SC) On Tuesday that it is okay with a mosque built in a Muslim dominated area that is at a reasonable distance from the disputed Ramjanmabhoomi, the site where the makeshift temple exists.

The Shia Board is one of the parties in the pending appeals in the Supreme court

In an 30-page affidavit, the Shia Waqf Board further said in the SC that the Babri Masjid was its property and therefore it was the only one entitled to negotiate an amicable settlement of the dispute

The Shia Board is one of the parties in the pending appeals in the Supreme court.

Also, the Shia Waqf Board has sought time from the SC to set up a committee to explore an amicable settlement of the Ram Janma Bhumi dispute.

Reacting to the development, Rajya Sabha member Subramanian Swamy said that according to him, the intervention by the Shia Waqf board is god sent.

It may be mentioned here that the Ayodhya issue has been pending in the Supreme Court since 2010, after the Allahabad HC divided the land equally between ‘Ram Lalla’, the Nirmohi Akhara and the Sunni Waqf Board.

Last week, the Supreme Court agreed to an early hearing on a bunch of petitions relating to the dispute over ownership of 2.7 acres of Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi land.

The apex court had posted the case to August 11.
