How the Waqf Board will appeal
Ahead of the crucial meeting of the Sunni Central Waqf Board on October 9 and 16th regarding the Ayodhya verdict, the board has made it clear that an appeal before the Supreme Court will be filed next month.
The Board has already made it clear that it will not go in for a compromise as suggested by the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court which delivered its verdict on the issue on Thursday last.
The legal team of the Board which has been meeting has decided to fight out the appeal before the Supreme Court on three crucial issues. They would quote the Shariyat Law which makes it clear that no Muslim should compromise the inner walls of a Mosque.
In addition to this ground they would also argue against the verdict of the High Court which said that faith was an evidence in this case. The board states that faith cannot be an evidence to decide on the birth place of Lord Ram.
The Board has also decided to challenge that portion of the verdict which stated that a Mosque was built on the site which was against the tenets of Islam. The main point for argument would however be that the Muslims had in their possession the Mosque and the idols were placed secretely inside the Mosque.
Once these grounds are prepared the Board will meet on October 9th and hold discussions with the members of the legal team and also the All India Muslim Personal Law Board. Further another meeting will be held of the executive committee on October 16th, sources in the Board
