Days after the Supreme Court gave its historic verdict on the Ayodhya land dispute case, Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind has filed a review petition and has obtained a stay order on the construction of Ram Temple in the area.
New Delhi: Muslim organisation Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind, on Monday (December 2), filed a petition seeking review of Supreme Court's verdict in the Ayodhya case.
On November 9, a five-judge Supreme Court bench unanimously ruled in favour of Ram Lalla and said the entire disputed land spread over 2.7 acres would be handed over to a trust formed by the government, which will monitor the construction of a Ram temple at the site.
The top court also added that an alternative five acres of land at a prominent location in Ayodhya should be allotted for the construction of a mosque following consultation with the Centre and the state government.
Recently, the Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board had asserted that it would not file a review petition against the apex court's verdict in the case but was yet to take a call on whether to accept a five-acre alternative plot for a mosque.
All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) is reportedly expected to file a review petition before December 9.
