Shia outfit asks AIMPLB not to challenge Ayodhya verdict

October 02, 2010 02:06 IST

Hussaini Tigers, an organisation of Shia youths, on Friday urged the All India Muslim Personal Law Board not to approach the Supreme Court against the Allahabad high court verdict on Ayodhya title suits and instead let the matter end here for good.

It also announced a financial aid of Rs 15 lakh for construction of the temple at the site. Criticising Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh Yadav and Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid Syed Ahmed Bukhari for their criticism of the verdict, Shamsi termed them as 'most unfortunate.'

"Hussaini Tigers and some other organisations of Muslim youths want that the matter should not be allowed to linger for long by appealing against the high court and we are meeting the members of AIMPLB in this regard," its state unit president Shamil Shamsi said.

"It was being stated by Muslim leaders as well as AIMPLB and the Sunni Central Waqf Board, the main litigant in the case, before the pronouncement of the verdict that everyone would accept it and now there was no point in going back on it," Shamsi said adding the board should take an initiative to end the dispute for good.

Shamsi said that on the basis of the high court verdict the Hindus and Muslims should present an example of communal harmony before the world and help each other in getting the mosque and temple constructed.

Announcing a financial aid of Rs 15 lakhs for temple construction, Shamsi said Hindus should also cooperate for mosque on the one-third piece of land given to the Waqf board.

Noted Shia cleric and member of AIMPLB Kalbe Jawwad is the patron of Hussaini Tigers.
