Ayodhya dispute: Congress furthers war of words with BJP

Ayodhya dispute: Congress furthers war of words with BJP”

Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for the Sunni Waqf Board, had said in the Supreme Court on Wednesday that the appeals in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case be heard in July 2019 after the completion of the next Lok Sabha polls as the atmosphere at present was not conducive for the proceedings.

PM Modi welcomed the stance of Sunni Wakf Board that the case should be redressed in a time bound manner.

The Supreme Court deferred the hearing in the case for February 8, 2018, following which, a controversy erupted wherein the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) attacked the Congress Party and Sibal of adopting a double standard on the issue and politicising it.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi unleashed a tirade against Sibal and Congress over "the cause of the Muslim community" and suggestion "to stop the hearing of Ram temple (issue) in the name of elections".

The Congress had distanced itself from Sibal's stand in the Supreme Court.

"Yes Kapil Sibal is our lawyer but he is also related to a political party, his statement in SC yesterday was wrong, we want a solution to the issue at the earliest", news agency ANI quoted Sunni Waqf Board member Haji Mehboob as saying. "He is entitled to do that, but is it right for him to say postpone the hearing till 2019?"

"I want to question the Congress Party and explain if it wants the Ram Janmbhoomi matter to be heard at the earliest or not", he asked.

Addressing BJP workers during his Gujarat election campaign in Dahod, Modi said, "The Sunni Waqf Board must be congratulated for their fearless stand and for disassociating themselves from the statement of Kapil Sibal". Amit Shah and the Prime Minister said I represented Sunni Waqf Board. Rizvi did not deny filing the appearance slip but argued that one should go by the order of the court which said Sibal appeared for two private persons.

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.

Rehmani also said that Sibal had talked about shifting of the hearing on the advice of the AIMPLB and other Muslim parties.

"Why does he have to link a Ram mandir (temple) with the elections".
