Babri Masjid was constructed after demolishing a temple : Shia Board

New Delhi : Seventy-one years after losing a legal battle for ownership of Babri Masjid, Shia Waqf Board of Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday approached the Supreme Court, challenging a trial court order which had on March 30, 1946 declared the mosque as Sunni Waqf Board property.

The board has admitted in its petition that Babri Masjid was constructed after demolishing a temple on the site.

With the SC to hear the dispute over Ram Janam Bhoomi-Babri Masjid on Friday, Shia Waqf Board pleaded to the court to decide its appeal along with other petitions.

A day after taking a stand that it was agreeable to shifting of the demolished mosque to bring about a closure to the vexed dispute, the board decided to revive its dispute with the Sunni Waqf Board by filing an appeal after more than seven decades.
