India: 'Ram Lalla''s Advocate Draws on Sunni Council Call to Prove Temple Destroyed for Babri Masjid | India News

NEW DELHI: Sunni Waqf Council Appeals Against Sun Waqf Board Babri Masjid Ram Lalla's appearance board told the Supreme Court that even the Shiite council said the temple had been demolished. for the construction of the mosque on the disputed site.
Seventy-one years after losing a legal battle over Babri Masjid's property, Uttar Pradesh's Shia Waqf board of directors appealed to the Supreme Court in 2017 to challenge a court of first instance order that 30 March 1946, said the mosque owned by the board of directors of Sunni Waqf. It is interesting to note that the commission admitted in its petition that Babri Masjid was built after the destruction of a temple there.
In its appeal, the Chamber argued that the trial court had made a grave mistake in stating that Babri Masjid was owned by Sunni Waqf, the mosque being built by a Shia Muslim. Against the widespread perception that the mosque was built by the Mughal emperor Babur, the council said it was built by his minister Abdul Mir Baqi, a Shiite Muslim, with his own funds and claimed the right to property. the mosque demolished. Babur was a Sunni Muslim.
"Maybe Babur would have ordered Baqui to build a mosque, Baqui chose the site and after demolishing the temple, he built the mosque and dedicated it to the god, creating Shia Waqf," said the commission. in his appeal that will also be heard with other petitions on the land dispute Ayodhya .
Referring to the appeal, lead counsel CS Vaidyanathan, appearing for Ram Lalla, told a five-judge panel headed by the president of the Supreme Court Ranjan Gogoi which confirmed his thesis that Babri Masjid had been built after demolishing a temple on the disputed site.
"Even though Babur ordered the construction of a mosque, the wakif is the one who actually creates the waqf by dedicating it to God. In the present case, of course, the mosque was built by Baqi with its funds. Babur only stayed in Ayodhya for five to six days, while the construction of a mosque took longer (demolition of the temple and construction of a mosque). The trial court did not understand that the mere fact of building a mosque did not make this person the embodiment of Wakif. Babur may have ordered Baqi to build a mosque, but Baqi chose the site and demolished the temple and built the mosque, "said the commission.
Counsel in his affidavit on the Ayodhya dispute with SC on the Ayodhya dispute was also favorable to the removal of the disputed land's mosque to bring peace to an old 70 legal battle, practically giving up its claim on the land. She argued that the mosque could be relocated from "the most respected birthplace of Maryada Purushottam Sri Ram" in a Muslim-dominated area nearby, in order to end the conflict over 2,77's ownership of acres of land that the Hindus regarded as the birthplace of Lord Ram.
