According to sources the Sunni Central Waqf Board on sunday said a decision on whether to accept a five acre land for building a mosque in ayodhya will be taken at its meeting likely on november 26. Meanwhile in a unanimous verdict, the supreme court on saturday paved the way for the construction of a ram temple at the disputed site at ayodhya, while directing the centre to allot a five-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque.
Reportedly UP Sunni Central Waqf Board Chairman, Zufar Farooqui, told PTI that he was getting diverse views on whether to take the land. He said "Board's general body meeting is expected on november 26 in which it will be decided whether to take five-acre land as directed by the supreme court or not”. Farooqui said "The meeting was earlier scheduled on Nov 13 but it was postponed and is now expected on Nov 26. I am getting diverse views on taking the land but I personally feel negativity can be won only with positivity".
Further noting that he had advocated for mediation to resolve ayodhya issue, Farooqui said, "Though mediation did not succeed my views are clear." He added "Some persons are also advising that the land should be taken by Waqf board and an educational institution, with a mosque established on its premises".
