NEW DELHI – Sunni Waqf Board lawyer Zafaryab Jilani on Saturday said that the Board were not satisfied with the Supreme Court court verdict that has ruled to give the Babri Masjid land in Ayodhya to the Hindus for a temple and that Muslims be given five acres of alternate land for a mosque.

“We respect the judgement but we are not satisfied. The verdict has a lot of contradictions. There should be no demonstration of any kind anywhere on it,” Jilani said addressing a press conference.

“We will file a review petition if our committee agrees on it. It is our right and it is in Supreme Court’s rules as well,” he added.

Jilani said the Board will soon decide on their further course of action in the matter.

Dr Rajeev Dhawan, the other lawyer representing Muslims and the Sunni Waqf Board, evaded a reply.

The five-judge Supreme Court bench ordered that the Ayodhya land where the 16th century Babri Masjid stood once be given to Hindus for the Ram temple to be built at the site by forming a trust under the control of the Central government. The government has to formulate a scheme on it within three months. The Court ordered that Muslims be granted alternate land to build a mosque.
