ISLAMABAD: Lawyer for the Sunni Waqf Board Zaffaryab Jilani said that he will appeal against the Indian court ruling that would divide Babri Masjid’s holy site between the Hindu and Muslim communities. Conflict over the site in Ayodhya has sparked bloody communal riots across the country in the past. Zaffaryab Jilani said Thursday the verdict was “a step forward,” but he would appeal to the Supreme Court.
Furthermore Pakistani clerics on Thursday bitterly condemned the decision of the Babri Mosque case by an Indian court, adding that the court’s decision has disclosed the real face of India.
“We condemn this verdict. We reject this as well. This will create resentment on an international level,” said Sahibzada Fazl Karim.
While talking to media, he said that the Organization of International Conference (OIC) should take serious steps. “The OIC was silent on the plan to burn the Holy Quran and we did not hear even a single word on the US court’s decision against Dr. Aafia Siddiqui,” he added.
He said that it is an international conspiracy and added that such a decision was not expected. Religious and sacred places are not safe in India. Allama Abbas Kumaili said that the decision is unjustified. “We condemn the court’s verdict.” He said that the court is under the influence of the majority (Hindus). “It is a diplomatic decision,” said Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman.
While talking to media he said that Indian Muslims should keep peace. “I appeal to Indian Muslims not to take to violence. The way of protests should be peaceful.” He said that India is a secular country and, he added, it had to respect the rights of minorities. Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman said that Muslims can not worship where idols are placed.-SANA
