Ayodhya Babri Masji Supreme Court

Ayodhya, Nov 11 : Prominent Muslims in this holy town have expressed reservations about accepting the five-acre land, as decided by the Supreme Court in its verdict on November 9 allotting 67 acres of the entire acquired area for the Ram temple.

Maulana Badshah Khan, president of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind in Ayodhya who was a party in the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi case from the Muslim side, said: “We fought the case for the Babri Masjid land, not for any other land. We don’t want any other land for mosque anywhere, and instead, we offer that land too for Ram Mandir.”

He said if the Muslims wanted to build a mosque, they could do so. “We can purchase land and build our mosque; we are not dependent on any government. If the court or government wants to assuage our sentiments, then the 5-acre land must be given within the acquired area as land marked as graveyards and a ‘dargah’ was also acquired,” said Maulana Jalal Ashraf, a local cleric.

Iqbal Ansari, who was also the main litigant in the case, said: “If they want to give us land, they must do so according to our convenience and only in that acquired 67-acre land.”

Dr Yusuf Khan, a Muslim social activist in Ayodhya, said: “There are enough mosques in Ayodhya to take care of our religious needs. Since the apex court has given its verdict in favour of Ram Temple, the issue is closed now.”

Khaliq Ahmad Khan, General Secretary of the All India Milli Council and a party in Ayodhya case from the Muslim side, said: “The government must give us land in the acquired area. There are 16 plots in the acquired area, including the plots of former Babri Masjid and ‘Shilanyas’. This includes a ‘qabristan’ (graveyard), four ‘Qanaati Masjid’ and a mausoleum of the 18th century sufi saint Qazi Qudwa. Some these have been razed”, he added.

Haji Asad Ahmad, Corporator of Ayodhya Municipal Corporation, said: “We don’t want any land in exchange for Babri Masjid. We don’t want donation of land.”

New Delhi, July 12 : The Land & Development Office, which comes under the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, has sent a notice to news agency PTI, demanding it to cough up more than Rs 84 crore as penalty. The notice dated July 7 says that the penalty has been imposed due to “breaches” at its office in Delhi.

The notice that sought Rs 84,48,23,281 argues that “the less will be pleased to regularise the breaches in the premises temporarily up to 14.07.2020 and withdraw the right of re-entry of the premises subject to the following conditions being fulfilled by you within 30 days from the date of issue of this letter.”

The notice also stipulates that the news agency needs to give an undertaking on non-judicial stamp paper stating that it will pay the difference of “misuse/damage charges” if the land rates are revised with effect from 01.04.2016 by the government and will also remove the “breaches” by 14.07.2020 or get them regularised by paying charges.

The notice also warns that further action to execute the deed has to be subject to complete payment and putting the premise to use according to the masterplan.

The Land & Development Office so warned that an additional 10 per cent interest may need to be coughed out by PTI if it fails to furnish the concerned amount within the stipulated time period.

Additionally, if the news agency fails to comply with the terms within the said period, the concession will be withdrawn. In other words, they will have to pay the penalty up to the actual date of payment then and will also be subject to actions.

This stern notice for alleged violations by PTI comes closely on the heels of national broadcaster Prasar Bharati locking horns with PTI over its reportage that it called “anti national”.

Prasar Bharti had recently sent a letter threatening to end its “relationship” with PTI after it carried an interview of Chinese Ambassador Sun Weidong, where he blamed India for the India-China violent standoff that saw 20 Indian bravehearts getting martyred.
