Voices of dissent against the Sunni Central Waqf Board, which is scheduled to announce a Trust for the construction of the mosque on a 5-acre plot in the Dhannipur village in Ayodhya district this week, are getting louder. Senior members of the Muslim community are of the opinion that the Trust must be independent and not under the control of the Sunni Waqf Board as some members are political appointees and could be remote-controlled. Senior cleric Maulana Salman Nadwi said, “The Trust members should not be appointed randomly. The government must pay compensation and bear cost for the construction of the mosque as protecting the mosque was the government’s responsibility and it failed to protect it. The trust should be free from government control.” Mushtaq Ahmed Siddiqui, member of Babri Masjid Action Committee (BMAC) and a senior lawyer in the title suit, said, “The Supreme Court had given land to Muslims against Claim No. 4 and the Waqf Board has been mentioned in the operative portion. So, Sunni Waqf Board has no right to make a decision on the formation of Trust.” Member of Sunni Central Waqf Board, Advocate Abdul Razzaq said, “The Waqf board is a den of corruption and if they control the Trust, there will be serious irregularities. The union government must constitute the Trust for building the mosque as it did for the Ram temple.” (IANS)
