Never represented Sunni Waqf Board in Supreme Court: Kapil Sibal

The Sunni Waqf Board on Wednesday distanced itself from its counsel Kapil Sibal's submission to the Supreme Court that the hearing of the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case is held after 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Sibal, an eminent lawyer, also came under stinging attack from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was on the campaign trail in Gujarat on Wednesday, for his attempt to link the legal tangle to the next general elections, wondering if such an issue should be kept unresolved for political gains and losses.

Lucknow, Dec 6 Major Muslim bodies today spoke in conflicting voices on the Ayodhya title suit with the UP Sunni Waqf Board against deferment of the hearing in the apex court till after the 2019 general elections and the AIMPLB saying the time was not right for the arguments to take place.

His contention was, however, not accepted by the court which made a decision to hear the matter on February 8 next year. The elections in the country are being fought by the Congress party.

Kapil Sibal argued the case in Supreme Court as a Congress leader and not on behalf of the board, Sunni Waqf Board member Haji Mehboob said. "We want that the case is solved at the earliest", he stressed.

The Congress was quick to hit back.

The Hindus, however, claim that a Ram temple that originally stood there was demolished to construct the mosque.

There are reports that the board has said it did not agree with Sibal's views. "The Congress has a clear stand on Ram temple construction; like all parties, the Congress party will accept whatever verdict the Supreme Court delivers". Congress leader Anand Sharma said that Prime Minister was diverting the issue from lack of development in Gujarat. Surjewala said that the BJP has stated in its manifesto that it will act in line with the Supreme Court order.

To a question on Sunni Waqf Board's position, Rehmani said that he has not had any talk with it in this regard. I request the PM to be a little more careful before making such public comments.

The stakeholders in the case had moved the apex court after the Allahabad HC directed the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and the Lord Ram Lalla to settle for a three-way division of the disputed site.
