Shameful and disgusting Supreme Verdict on Ayodhya Mosque

Indian judiciary has collapsed under the weight of Hindutva fascism

In the most disgusting and shameful collapse of Indian judiciary, the Supreme Court has given on Saturday 9 November 2019 the Ayodhya mosque and its 2.77 land to Hindus with a trust to be formed by the Centre within three months to monitor the construction of a Ram Temple.

The Sunni Waqf Board will be given 5 acres of alternate land, a five-judge bench of the Supreme Court ruled in the unanimous verdict.

The Ayodhya title suit verdict came nine years after the 2:1 judgment of the Allahabad High Court that ordered a three-way division of the disputed 2.77 acres of land between the three parties — Ram Lalla, Sunni Waqf Board and the Nirmohi Akhara. The Lucknow Bench had ruled that Hindus and Muslims would be joint title holders of the disputed land.

Sunni Waqf Board Lawyer Zafaryab Jilani says he is not satisfied with the judgment. “We are not satisfied with the verdict. But will respect the order. We will seek a review of the verdict, 5-acre land has no value for us. We are appealing for calm and quiet.”

It appears the verdict was written by RSS and given to the judges read out. The verdict rewards crime and hooliganism by Hindutva thugs with government connivance.Otherwise how on earth a five century old mosque could be handed to Hindus to build a temple.

AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday said the Supreme court verdict was a “victory of belief over facts.” The Hyderabad MP, also said he was not satisfied with the ruling. The supreme court is “indeed supreme but not infallible,” he said quoting a former Chief Justice of India

Muslims stand to lose regardless of whether the Supreme Court verdict is favourable towards the community or not, former Aligarh Muslim University vice-chancellor Lt Gen (retd) Zameer Uddin Shah told .. The Army veteran has also advocated gifting the contested site in Ayodhya to Hindus even if the Muslim side wins the title suit, “for communal harmony and lasting peace”.

The Army veteran is part of a group of Muslim intellectuals, who call themselves, ‘Indian Muslims for Peace’, that has called for an out-of-court settlement in the case.

“We couldn’t prevent the demolition, and you think anybody will allow the mosque to be rebuilt there?” Shah said. “We do not want any sustained riots that happened after the demolition. That’s why I recommended on a pre-condition that there is no repeat of this any further (demolition).”

The question that has arisen is, “what may be the Muslims’ reaction who have fought for Babri Masjid with the intention to rebuild it?”The group has said that, in this situation, “when there is already a makeshift temple with pooja going on round the clock and lakhs of devotees visiting there, will it be possible to build a masjid there?“

The group also comprises eminent Muslim academics, bureaucrats, doctors, engineers, lawyers, journalists, and businessmen.

The statement added, “We would prefer out of court settlement so that both Hindus and Muslims remain happy and no party feels aggrieved. Keeping in view our secular, democratic fabric and centuries-old relations with our Hindu brothers, in our collective wisdom the disputed land owned by Muslims of India may be handed over by Honorable Supreme Court of India to Government of India as a goodwill gesture for attaining communal harmony and lasting peace in the country.”
