Ayodhya verdict challenged by JUH in the SC

New Delhi: Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind (JUH) moved the Supreme Court on 15 November against the Allahabad High Court’s verdict on Ayodhya. The appeal was filed by JUH counsel Anis Suharawardy. JUH in its appeal said,”The core finding in the judgement as regards the alleged place of birth of Lord Shri Ram is based on the professed belief of Hindus and not on evidence,” The appeal submitted 33 questions before the Supreme Court to consider on the disputed structure. The appeal filed by Anis Suhrawady said “It is humbly submitted that the mosque was illegally demolished. However, the ruins still exist. The foundation of the mosque is still intact. Title would not extinguish by demolishing the mosque. Therefore, it was incumbent on the court to uphold the rule of law and not to validate an illegal act,” Jamiat has challenged the verdict as they believe that the Ayodhya verdict was based on belief and not on evidence. President of JUH, Arshad Madani, said that there is rule of law in India and the verdict should be based on facts and not on the basis of faith and belief.
