All India Shia Personal Law Board agrees with AIMPLB, rejects compromise on Ayodhya issue: 'Only masjid can be built'

Even as chief for the Art of Living Sri Sri Ravi Shankar continued his campaign to find a amicable solution to the Ram Janmabhoomi issue, the All India Shia Personal Law Board on Monday rejected any compromise and said that only a masjid can replace the demolished Babri Masjid on the disputed land in Ayodhya, reported News18 Hindi.

While rejecting calls for a compromise, All India Shia Personal Law Board spokesperson Maulana Yasub Abbas told Amar Ujala that unnecessary statements on the Ram Janmabhoomi issue will not help resolve the case. "People like Sri Sri, Salman Nadvi and Waseem Rizvi need to stop making statements on the issue. There should not be any statement which can create a rift between Muslims and Hindus. This must stop," he told the publication.

Abbas' statement was in line with All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB)'s stance that there will be a mosque at the place, till "qayamat" (the final judgement). The land dedicated for mosque can't be sold, gifted or in any way alienated, the AIMPLB said in a statement. The decision was taken at the executive meeting of the AIMPLB on 10 February.

The Board had said that it never rejected the offers of conciliation by Hindu religious leaders and urged them to come forward with justifiable and honourable settlement. "However, they always had one answer that Muslims should unilaterally give up the mosque but Muslims can't do this because giving a mosque for worship of anyone other than Allah is 'haram' and there is no scope for this in Shariat. If Muslims do this they will be accountable to Allah," said the statement released in Urdu.

Moreover, the Shia Personal Law Board's statement came after the chairman of the Shia Waqf Board Waseem Rizvi wrote a letter to AIMPLB chairman Maulana Rabe Hasan Nadvi urging the board to surrender nine religious disputed places to Hindus, including Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
