Pak behind the pending Ayodhya dispute: Shia leader Rizvi
Lucknow: Chairman of the Shia Central Waqf Board, Uttar Pradesh, Syed Waseem Rizvi, on Wednesday, said that Pakistan is actively involved in creating hurdles in the settlement of the Ayodhya land dispute.
He said, "This (Ayodhya) dispute is not getting addressed because Pakistan has the biggest hand in it. Those representing the Muslim community in the Supreme Court on the issue have direct links with Pakistan and want bloodshed to destabilise the country.”
Waseem alleged that Pakistan is funding members of the Sunni Waqf Board and Babri Masjid Action Committee as part of its nefarious designs.
He said, "We do not want a solution from the Supreme Court. We want to build a consensus among the Muslims of the country and we are on a mobilisation tour so that the issue could be resolved through dialogue between the two communities."
He added, “Muslims of the country are real patriots because they chose to stay back in India when the doors were open for their migration to Pakistan at the time of Partition. We want brotherhood among communities to remain intact."
Waseem said that he along with his team will be visiting Kashmir in the next couple of days to hold talks with the Muslim leadership.
He said, "We will also visit Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai and make people aware about the nefarious designs of Pakistan in the Ayodhya issue."
