As per the information provided by an AIMPLB office bearer, An additional six litigants are to file review petitions against the Supreme court verdict in the Ayodhya case. Interestingly, a review petition has already been filed by The Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind.

The legal heir of the original litigant M Siddiq, Maulana Syed Ashhad Rashidi, filed a plea claiming that the judgment suffers from “errors apparent on record and warrants a review under Article 137 of the Constitution of India”.

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board secretary Zafaryab Jilani commented on the fresh pleas and mentioned that the review petitions of the six litigants were underway and that these would come to be filed in the new few days.

The date for the filing of the petitions would be disclosed as soon as they were complete, according to Jilani. The November 9th verdict by the Supreme Court ruled that the entire 2.77 acres of disputed land should be handed over to the deity Ram Lalla, who was one of the three litigants.

The Centre was directed by the five-judge Constitution towards the allotment of a five-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board in Ayodhya in order to build a mosque.

There can be ‘no peace without justice’, the petition said, demanding to know whether a court can order ‘destruction’ of Babri Masjid to ‘construct a temple of Lord Ram’ in its place despite acknowledging several ‘illegalities’ committed by the Hindu parties.

“Had the Babri Masjid not been illegally demolished on December 6, 1992, execution of the order would have required destruction of an existing mosque to make space for a proposed temple… This court committed an error apparent by not awarding the disputed site to Muslim parties despite noting that the claim of Hindu parties were based on three outlining illegalities,” the petition said.

However, the Sunni Central Waqf Board has decided against filing a plea for a review. The boTd was also unsure of its final decision on the acceptance or decline of the plot of land. The AIMPLB had asserted that 99 percent of Muslims in the country wanted a review of the Supreme Court verdict.
