IICF to move Supreme Court in Gyanvapi case
Ayodhya : The Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation (IICF) said that the videography being done at the Gyanvapi Masjid is a clear violation of the Places of Worship Act, 1991. The same character was on 15 August 1947
, IICF will now approach the Supreme Court in this regard.
IICF secretary Athar Hussain said: “We will leave no stone unturned to implement the Ayodhya verdict in letter and spirit. We will approach the apex court to implement the Places of Worship Act, 1991.
“Any place of worship in India other than the Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya is in violation of the Supreme Court’s decision of November 9, 2019.”
IICF is a Supreme Court mandated trust, which owns 5 acres of land in Ayodhya allotted for the construction of a mosque by the Supreme Court in lieu of Babri Masjid land.
The Places of Worship Act, 1991 stipulated that any religious place shall retain the same character as it was at the time of independence.
The Ram Janmabhoomi issue in Ayodhya was kept out of the purview of the Act.
