According to sources a majority of muslims are of the view that the Sunni Wakf Board must not take the five acres of land awarded to it in the ayodhya verdict. Meanwhile the supreme court had asked the central and state government of uttar pradesh to provide this land to the Wakf Board for building a new mosque.
Furthermore many muslims had consternation over the award why must we take that land? They reflect a common view of the community that the fight in court was not for land. Perhaps the judgment of the supreme court was the highest, and final, and there was no alternative but to abide by it. Apparently there is anger, despair and dejection in the community but they have decided to be largely silent on social media. Instead, in one-to-one discussions at homes, in conversations with friends the debate has taken over the attention of the entire Muslim community.
Moreover Momin roshan Zameer, an advocate, said that if we had wanted land for a masjid, “we could have pooled our resources and built one. We do not need this land as it will always remind us of the 500 year old masjid we lost. The court has not taken our evidence into account but we have stood strong and maintained peace and apparently youngsters believe that it would also help them showcase the manner in which they accepted and embraced dejection by paving way for an institution, which could serve people of all communities.
