Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind and AIMPLB are not on the same page when it comes to sacking Rajeev Dhawan as their lawyer in the Supreme Court
Bengaluru: The news of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind deciding to relinquish he services of Rajeev Dhawan has set in motion a lot of debate.
While the Muslim party decides it is better to do away with him, other Muslim parties, strangely, are not with Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind.
For example, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) is not in consonance with the decision to bar him.
Sources said that AIMPLB has put its foot down and wants to continue with the services of Rajeev Dhawan.
But Rajeev Dhawan was quick to add that it was the right of the client to not utilise his services.
"Last week Mr. Maqbool and his juniors had met me and reviewed his draft. A meeting was supposed to occur yesterday as they wanted to file for review yesterday itself. When I had gone to the dentist, my clerk overheard their conversation involving my sacking. When I asked whether I was sacked, they confirmed it. If any client wishes to not employ me in their case, it is their right," he said speaking to ANI.
As regards AIMPLB backing him, he said, they too are helpless.
"As much I know, it was their (AIMPLB) helplessness that their client (Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind) did not like me. Previously too they had created a controversy, but they (AIMPLB) insisted that I be their lawyer. This time some of the (Muslim) parties have created some controversy but I have never fallen in any controversy," he said.
It was on Monday that the Muslim body had filed a review petition in the Supreme Court on the Ayodhya verdict. It stated that the top court had erred in granting relief to the Muslim parties. It also stated that the top court's decision to not appreciate the Babri mosque as Waqf property is wrong.
