Ayodhya Case: Can Indian Muslims Refuse to Acquire Five Acres?

In the Ayodhya case, the Indian Supreme Court's decision to grant five acres of land to the Sunni Waqf Board is a matter of debate in India.

On one hand there is pressure on the Sunni waqf board not to accept the land, and on the other hand, the debate is hot on where to find the land. In this case, differences between the Muslim community and different Muslim organizations are also visible.

The Sunni waqf board announced only to accept the decision and not challenge the decision after it was delivered.

The announcement was supported by several Muslim religious leaders, as the All India Muslim Personal Law Board is preparing to challenge the Indian Supreme Court's decision.

Accept court offer?

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board is going to hold a meeting in Lucknow on November 17th. The meeting will consider whether to take any further action on the Supreme Court decision.

Zafariab Jilani, a board member and lawyer, says: 'Muslims did not demand land from the Supreme Court. We were asking for a mosque back on the disputed land. If we file a revision petition, it will include this point. ”

Muslim organizations are also considering whether the Sunni Waqf Board should accept the offer of the Supreme Court.

The debate was started by Asaduddin Owaisi, a leader of the Majlis-e-Islami, which many people support.

Owaisi clearly named it as a charity and said, "Indian Muslims are so qualified that they can buy land and build a mosque. I think the Sunni Waqf Board should not accept this proposal. '

Sunni Waqf Board Chairman Zafar Farooqui does not appear to accept the Owaisi but the final decision will be taken after the Waqf Board meeting.

Zafar Farooqi told the BBC: "We are calling a meeting of the board as soon as possible and at this meeting we will decide whether to accept the Supreme Court offer." If the board accepts this land, then it will be decided whether a mosque or something else will be built on this five acre land. '

He added: "Where the land will be given is to be decided by the federal and state governments together." We will not ask for land to be given in any particular place, but if the government wants it, only the 67-acre area around the disputed site can be given to us by a government-owned land. '

It should be remembered that in 1991, the government had taken 67 acres of land around it, including the disputed site.

Where to find land

There is also a debate in the Muslim community about where five acres of land will end up, as it is not clear in the Supreme Court decision.

On the other hand, some Hindu organizations are still convinced that land will not be allowed for the mosque inside Ayodhya.

A Hindu organization official, on condition of anonymity, said: 'No land can be given outside the 14th Kos. If the government tries to land around Ram Janma Bhoomi in Ayodhya, then Hindu organizations can also take to the streets against it. '

He believes that giving land to a mosque out of government-ruled land does not raise the question, doing so will risk future consequences.

But after talking to some Muslim youth in Ayodhya it seemed that they were not happy with the decision, but if the land was acquired within the area acquired by the government, it would probably ease their grief over the decision.

Bablu Khan, who lives in Ayodhya, said: 'The Supreme Court has ruled and did not do justice. We cannot do anything about it now, but if land is found in the same area, then the mosque can be rebuilt. '

Many people demand that Muslims receive land within 67 acres of land. Which was taken over by the federal government.

Build a mosque on earth or something?

Meanwhile, it is also being considered that Muslims should build a mosque on government-owned land or something else?

Some people think that the Sunni waqf board should take over the land, but instead of a mosque there should be a hospital or educational institution that benefits everyone.

Ashraf Usmani, the religious leader of the Muslims, says that once the mosque was built on the ground, it would remain a Taijiat mosque. Even if there is no other building in it. We were sticking to this. Now, if the mosque is no longer there, no matter what happens, no matter what. '

There is also a view that the government can grant land anywhere in Ayodhya to build a mosque.

Some Hindu leaders have been opposed to granting land within the realm of five Kos or fourteen Kos, but the government may not find it difficult because the circle of Ayodhya has increased too now.

In the past, Ayodhya was merely a town but now Faizabad district has become the name of Ayodhya.
