LUCKNOW — Muslims in Ayodhya and Faizabad are not being allowed to file affidavits in the Babri Masjid case and that the government officials are working in a partial manner, Zafaryab Jilani, senior lawyer and executive member of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), has alleged.

Jilani alleged that officers in the Yogi Adityanath government have become partial and are not allowing Muslims to file affidavit in the Babri Masjid case.

“It is quite possible that we may have to submit a request to the Supreme Court in this regard soon. He (Dhawan) has rightly alleged that the state government has pressurised the Sunni Waqf Board. However, the Waqf board will not accept it,” Jilani said, reports News18.

Speaking to the media about allegations made by fellow lawyer Rajeev Dhawan, Jilani reportedly said, “The allegations made by Rajeev Dhawan are absolutely correct. Till now I was not putting any allegations on the Centre as I did not have proper information. But I am sure his (Dhawan’s) information is correct. There is an attempt to pressurise us at every step. Officials are creating problems in Ayodhya and Faizabad. The insiders involved in the case have told me how no one is allowed to speak to them (litigants).”

“It is quite possible that we may have to submit a request to the Supreme Court in this regard soon. He (Dhawan) has rightly alleged that the state government has pressurised the Sunni Waqf Board. However, the Waqf board will not accept it,” News18 quotes Jilani.

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has decided to file the review petition in the first week of December as petitioners can file the review within 30 day limit ending on December 9.

Sunni Waqf Board’s decision to not pursue the case would not legally have any effect. All Muslim organisations are on the same page, said AIMPLB.
