Ayodhya (Uttar Pradesh): While on one hand All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) decided to file a review petition against the Supreme Court verdict on Ayodhya, on the other, Shia Waqf Board chief Wasim Rizvi has donated Rs 51,000 to the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas.

"Ayodhya is a very ancient place. The controversy had dwindled its name. I come from Agra which is a tourist place. Ayodhya could also develop as a tourist place after the construction of Ram temple here," Zafar Rizvi, representative of Shia Waqf Board said.

"The honourable Supreme Court has taken a very considered decision by calling for the formation of a trust to build the temple. The mosque which will be built on the 5-acre land given by the government should be named Aman Masjid," he added.

The Supreme Court on November 9 directed the Central government to hand over the disputed site at Ayodhya for the construction of the temple and set up a trust for the same.

The apex court further directed the government to give a suitable plot of land measuring five acres to the Sunni Waqf Board.

A decade-long legal dispute was fought by Hindu Mahasabha, a sect of Hindu monks Nirmohi Akhara and Sunni Waqf Board over 2.77 acres of land in Ayodhya.
