99 per cent Muslims want review of SC judgment on Ayodhya dispute: AIMPLB

LUCKNOW: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board on Sunday asserted that 99 per cent of Muslims in the country want a review of the unanimous Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya dispute.

The AIMPLB, which was not a party to the law suit, has previously said a review petition will be filed by December 9.

A five-judge bench had ruled on November 9 that a temple should be built through a trust set up by the government on the disputed site, where the mosque was demolished in 1992.

“Muslims trust judiciary that is why a review petition is being filed. However, the trust has weakened after the SC verdict on Ayodhya,” AIMPLB General Secretary Maulana Wali Rahmani told PTI.

“Ninety-nine per cent of Muslims of the country are in favour of a review petition. If it understood that a big section is against this, it is wrong,” he said.

Rahmani, however, said they “suspect our petition will be dismissed”.

“(But) it does not mean we don’t file it. It’s our legal right. There are many contradictory things in the verdict,” he added.
