New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a public lawsuit seeking direction to include government nominees in the Indo Islamic Cultural Foundation Trust, which is set up to build a mosque in Ayodhya.
The Supreme Court ruled on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid controversy on November 9, 2019, giving the government 2.7 acres of land for temple construction and directing the government to hand over five acres of land to the Sunni Central Waqf Board in Ayodhya.
Two Uttar Pradesh lawyers have gone to court seeking the appointment of Sunni Muslim nominees from the central and Uttar Pradesh governments on the trust set up on the same path for mosque construction and other activities in Ayodhya. The nominees were inducted into the Sri Rama Janmabhoomi Tirtha constituency.
The bench, headed by Justice Rohinton F Nariman, dismissed a public interest lawsuit filed by lawyer Shishir Chaturvedi and Kamlesh Kumar Shukla, saying government nominees should also attend other trusts, such as the Ramjanbhumi Trust.
The Supreme Court, through its November 9, 2019 ruling, has ordered the inclusion of three government nominees in the Trust for Construction and Maintenance of the Temple of Lord Ram in Ayodhya.
Shukla was the younger counsel of Hanuman Garhi Naga Sadhu and Nirmohi Akhara of Mahant Dharam Das in Ayodhya case in Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court had directed the Center in its verdict on November 9, 2019 to create a trust within three months for the construction of the temple, but no such direction was given to the five acres of land allotted to Muslims.
The court said the Sunni Central Waqf Board is free to use the land.
The Sunni Central Waqf Board has established the Indo Islamic Cultural Foundation Trust to oversee the construction of a mosque, cultural and research facilities, hospital, library, community kitchen and other public utilities on land allotted to the Dhanipura village of Ayodhya. .
The appeal stated that the various residents of Ayodhya wanted some representation from the central and state governments for “strict vigilance and oversight to maintain public peace and control of the misuse of the trust.”
Hundreds of people will visit the site of the Islamic Trust, which will receive contributions from India and abroad, and ensure peace and comfort in Ayodhya, proper management of money and property in the trust.
The petition states that the Central and State Governments have all the information of the Trust in order to maintain public order and to prevent any misconduct and not to misuse or misuse the money.
