We paid stamp responsibility of Rs 9,29,400 to course of this land.”
“We didn’t demand this land. The Supreme Court docket by itself allotted it to Sunni Board. Thus, there isn’t any query of exchanging land for Babri land,” Farooqui mentioned, including that “there isn’t any shifting of then Babri Masjid as Babri premises was given to the Hindu social gathering by Supreme Court docket order in November final yr. Dhannipur land was given in possession of Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board by the identical SC order and it isn’t a waqf land.”
“The court docket has not accepted Babri Masjid as waqf. Had the apex court docket accepted land as waqf, we might have received the case. 5 acres given to Waqf Board just isn’t in lieu of Babri Masjid. The land is given to us as restitution by the apex court docket. The land has been given to UP Sunni Central Waqf Board, which is a statutory physique. The Waqf Board just isn’t a person and Waqf Board can not create any waqf by itself. Solely a believer of Islam can create waqf. The land was given to the Waqf Board and being a authorized physique it might probably purchase the property,” mentioned Farooqui.
“Aside from two properties of Waqf Board in Lucknow (two workplaces), that is the third property at Dhannipur and the Dhannipur property has been transferred to Ayodhya Mosque Belief,” he added.
In the meantime, Athar Hussain, secretary of Ayodhya Mosque Belief, reacting over the problem mentioned “Jilani Sahab is a reliable lawyer. If we’re violating Central Waqf Act, why does he not problem it in court docket. If he isn’t doing so, then he’s merely spreading misinformation by saying it’s in opposition to Shariat.”
