Sunni Waqf Board accuses Kapil Sibal for wrong statement

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP seized upon it to say that the former minister made the plea for indefinite postponement as part of a Congress gameplan to thwart resolution of the Ram temple versus Babri Masjid dispute. Senior party leader Anand Sharma said, "The Congress is clear that the matter is before the Supreme Court and our party will support whatever the court says". I was never a Sunni Waqf Board lawyer.

The stakeholders in the case had moved the apex court after the Allahabad HC directed the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and the Lord Ram Lalla to settle for a three-way division of the disputed site.

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), which is not a party to the case, however, favored deferring the hearing till after the next general elections claiming that the time was not right for the same now.

The BJP is playing the role of "Manthara', raking up Kapil Sibal's stand on the hearing", Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said, while addressing the media. Indeed, even in this instance, Sibal, Rajeev Dhavan, and Dushyant Dave were appearing for the litigants, and the Waqf Board could be backing off now because it doesn't want to be embroiled in a controversy, said a lawyer appearing for one of the litigants on condition of anonymity. We want a solution to the issue at the earliest.

Meanwhile, today, a Delhi court will deliver its verdict in connection with the terrorist attack on the makeshift Ram Temple in Ayodhya in 2005. The Congress vice president had put out a tweet on Tuesday carrying erroneous percentages to depict a rise in the prices of essential commodities in a graphic and asked the prime minister whether his government was "for the rich".

On Thursday, Sibal cited the December 5 order which showed him appearing for two private persons, discounting the list of advocates in the order sheet that showed him appearing for the Waqf Board.

But there is still a catch.

Modi said now he understands why the Congress kept many issues unresolved, without elaborating but implying that it was done to derive political mileage.

The Supreme Court commenced the hearings in the Ayodhya dispute yesterday morning.
