Ayodhya: Involved over the potential post-verdict scenario within the Ram Janmabhoomi Babri Masjid dispute case, Muslim litigants have stated that they won’t construct the mosque for the sake of nation’s peace and concord.
“The first priority is to maintain harmony. If the verdict is in favour of Muslims then, in the greater interest of peace and communal harmony, we should not build a mosque on Babri land. We should just build a boundary (around) the piece of land,” stated Muslim Litigant Haji Mehboob.
“This is my personal opinion. Keeping in view the present situation of the country, I will take my proposal to the other litigants to discuss it further,” added Mehboob.
Mufti Hasbullah Baadshah Khan, a litigant from the Muslim aspect and native President of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind, reacting to Haji Mehboob’s assertion stated, “it is correct that we must have to take care of communal harmony first. We will discuss the situation with senior Muslim religious leaders. In the present scenario, we should postpone the construction of the mosque if a verdict comes in our favour.”
Mohammad Umar, one other Muslim litigant, stated, “I agree, if we have to postpone the construction of a mosque, we must (do so) to take care of peace and communal harmony and peace in the society.”
Iqbal Ansari, one of many essential Muslim litigants, who supported the peaceable settlement of the dispute, nevertheless, declined to react on the problem.
“Let the verdict be pronounced. We will not allow any breach in the communal fabric of the country,” he stated.
