AYODHYA: The Hindu and Muslim litigants in the Ayodhya case have opposed the All India Muslim Personal Law Board’s decision to file a review petition in the matter.
Ram Lalla’s ‘next friend’ Triloki Nath Pandey, who represented the deity in the court, said: “The Muslims must not go for a review petition… There is no gain for them in it (but) the atmosphere of harmony will definitely deteriorate. There are no two opinions about it.”
Iqbal Ansari, who was one of the main litigants from the Muslim side in the Ayodhya title dispute case, also came out against the AIMPLB’s move.
“It is not correct at all… See the verdict has come, no riot took place… I have separated myself from them. The dispute was going on for 70 years and now the Supreme Court has given its verdict, so I will go with the verdict,” he said.
However, the Nirmohi Akhara did not mind the AIMPLB’s decision to go in for a review petition.
Nirmohi Akhara’s counsel Ranjeet Lal Varma said: “This is the legal right given by the court to them… We have no objection as it is a normal judicial process and they have scope to go for review so they are going.”
