The All India Muslim Personal Law Board today said, that the Ayodhya issue cannot be resolved by bringing a legislation and would be decided only by court. The reaction comes after the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and some Bharatiya Janata Party leaders demanded that the government must step in to build Ram temple.
“It has been said that a legislation should be brought in Parliament to build a Ram temple but it is not possible because the matter is before the apex court. The matter will not be resolved through legislative means but by the court,” Board’s spokesman Abdul Rahim Qureshi said.
The apex Muslim body stressed that the matter was subjudice and it will only accept the decision of the court.
“The matter is before the Supreme Court and whatever verdict it gives will be acceptable to us,” he said.
BJP MP Vinay Katiyar who was the one of the prominent faces of the Ayodhya movement, had recently said that the Modi government should “move to resolve” the matter without waiting for the Supreme Court verdict.
Slamming Katiyar’s statement, Qureshi stated that the BJP leader was making such statements to in order to gain publicity after he was sidelined in the government formation at the Centre.
