Sunni Waqf Board rejects Sibal's plea

Sunni Waqf Board rejects Sibal's plea

Reacting to the controversy over his statement in Supreme Court that the verdict in the Babri-Ram Janmabhoomi case be deferred till after the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Sibal said that the temple in Ayodhya "will be built only when lord Rama wants, and not when PM Modi wants it".

Though Sibal did not mention elections, it was apparent to all present that he wanted the court to hear the matter only after the 2019 elections to Lok Sabha. In a statement to news agencies, Haji Mehboob, a litigant, said he was a member of the UP Sunni Wakf Board, and that Sibal was "our lawyer", but that his plea in court was "wrong".

There are reports that the board has said it did not agree with Sibal's views. "Everybody said that if we take a stand against it, we will face a backlash in the UP elections, but we took a stand and the Supreme Court asked us to form a law in six months", he said. "Yesterday, in the Supreme Court, Congress MP Kapil Sibal was arguing (which is his right) for the Babri Masjid".

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), which is not a party to the case, however, favored deferring the hearing till after the next general elections claiming that the time was not right for the same now.

"The PM did not check the fact that actually I never represented the Sunni Waqf Board in the Supreme Court and yet he thanked them".

Rehmani also said that Sibal had talked about shifting of the hearing on the advice of the AIMPLB and other Muslim parties. A list showing which lawyer appeared for which side, part of the very same December 5 order sheet, showed that the prominent lawyer appeared for UP Sunni Waqf Board, whose civil appeal has been numbered "4192" of 2011.
