A body comprising Vishwa Hindu Parishad and other Hindu religious leaders on Wednesday decided to challenge the Allahabad High Court judgement in Ayodhya title suits relating to the three-way division of the disputed land in the Supreme Court.
The leaders, who met at Kar Sevakpuram here under the auspices of Sant Uchadhikar Samiti, decided to approach the apex court on the division of the disputed land among Hindus and Muslims. In a majority 2-1 verdict, the Lucknow Bench of the Court on September 30 ruled the entire disputed land should be divided into three equal parts among the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and the parties representing ‘Ram Lalla Virajman’ (seated Baby Ram).
It had also held that the place where the makeshift temple of Lord Rama currently exists belongs to Hindus.
Advocate Trilok Nath Pandey representing ‘Ram Lalla Virajman’, a litigant in Ayodhya title suits, would move the Supreme Court challenging the three-way division of the land, Swami Vasudevanand Saraswati, who chaired the meeting, told reporters in Ayodhya.
Meanwhile the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha (ABHM) on Wednesday said that a settlement in the Ram Janmabhoomi- Babri mosque dispute could be worked out amicably through negotiations provided the Sunni Central Waqf Board relinquishes its claim over the land to allow construction of a Ram Temple on the entire disputed site.
“Muslims should give up their claim over the land in a cordial manner paving the way for construction of the temple and Hindus would also reciprocate (by making provisions for) a mosque at some other place,” Rakesh Kumar Arya, spokesman of ABHM, said.
He said the Mahasabha’s president Swami Chakrapani has written a letter to the Sunni Central Waqf Board recently asking it to relinquish its claim on the land in national interest.
“The mahasabha would go to the Supreme Court against the Allahabad High Court verdict as other parties are also approaching the apex court,” he said, adding that the organisation would strive to construct a grand temple on the entire land.
The Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, one of the main parties in the dispute, had earlier this month filed a caveat in the Supreme Court to pre-empt any ex-parte order in the Ayodhya title suit case.
Earlier today, Chakrapani met Mahant Gyan Das of the Akhara Parishad and lauded his efforts for a negotiated settlement.
“The mahasabha is of the opinion that eminent people like Gyan Das should continue their efforts,” Arya said. A meeting of the mahasabha’s national working committee would be held in Ayodhya on October 31 and development of the town would be on top of its agenda, Arya said.
Meanwhile, a press note issued in Lucknow by media cell of the state unit of the Mahasabha condemned Swami Chakrapani for calling on Mahant Gyan Das who has been making efforts for negotiated settlement of the issue against the policy of the Mahasabha.
