Upendra Bharti | HENB | Ayodhya | Dec 31, 2019:: The Yogi Adityanath government has shortlisted five sites within Ayodhya area for Sunni Central Waqf Board for making a mosque in compliance with the five-acre land offer made by the Supreme Court in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title verdict.
The five sites are outside the “Panchkosi Parikrama” Hindu limits, in accordance with the wishes of saints and seers who had wanted the proposed mosque at a ‘safe distance’ so that there would be no Hindu-Muslim conflict in the future.
The Panchkosi Parikrama is performed over a two-day period in Ayodhya during the monsoon months. The Hindu devotees first take a holy dip in the Saryu River and then do a Parikrama of 15 km along the periphery of the city. It is said that over two lakh devotees and 50,000 saints and seers from Prayagraj, Haridwar, Mathura and Kashi participate in the event.
According to official sources, the state government has identified four sites on the Ayodhya-Faizabad road, Ayodhya-Basti road, Ayodhya-Sultanpur road and Ayodhya-Gorakhpur road. All the five sites as proposed are connected to state/national highways, away from the Parikrama route, which will felicitate the Muslim devotees to attend the mosque without any inconvenience.
“The details of the proposed sites have been sent to the Centre for approval and clearance. We have ensured that all sites have easy access,” said an official.
The Sunni Central Waqf Board, however, remains undecided about accepting the land.
Other Muslim parties, including the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), Babri Masjid Action Committee and Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind has already rejected the offer of the five-acre land for the new mosque, in lieu of the demolished Babri mosque.
The Supreme Court said in its November 9 ruling that the Sunni Waqf Board should receive an alternate 5-acre plot of land within Ayodhya.
Eighteen review pleas were filed against the verdict in the top court, but all of them were dismissed on December 12.
