Ahead of Ayodhya verdict, AIMPB asks Muslims to have faith in Constitution

Prime News, National (New Delhi), November 2:- As the day of a verdict on the decades-old Ayodhya land dispute nears, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board urged imams to advise Muslims to repose faith in the Constitution and judiciary while maintaining communal harmony

Senior member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangi Mahali on Friday said, “My appeal is to every imam of various mosques to make appeal that Muslims need not feel afraid, but they should repose faith in country’s Constitution and judiciary, and whatever the judgement comes, we should honour it.”

Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi is expected to deliver verdict in the Ayodhya case before his retirement on November 17.

In a statement here Maulana Khalid said, “As media reports suggest the Supreme Court’s judgement on Ayodhya is going to come soon. You are aware of the fact that the Ayodhya case is the biggest and most sensitive case of independent India. The entire country and the global community are looking towards the judgement. Hence, it is the responsibility of every citizen to honour the judgement of the court and maintain peace.”

Maulana Khalid also appealed to people not to indulge in any type of celebration after the judgement is out, not to indulge in sloganeering nor undertake protests.

“No issue should be raised which may hurt religious sentiments. The fabric of communal bonhomie and Ganga-Jamuni tehzeeb should not be allowed to be damaged,” he said.

Earlier, all Muslim parties had filed their written submissions in the Supreme Court Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute at Ayodhya and said that the verdict will have “consequences” for the future polity of the country.

Issuing a public statement they said, “We hope that the Court, in moulding the relief, upholds our multi-religious and multicultural values in resolving the issues confronting it. Moulding the relief is the responsibility of this Court, which itself is the sentinel of our Constitution. When moulding the relief, this Court must also consider how future generations will view this verdict.” (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
