Raising objections over the allotment of 5-acre land to Sunni Muslims, Uttar Pradesh Shia Central Waqf Board chairman Wasim Rizmi on Tuesday said that the land should be given to Shias and not Sunnis as Mir Bakshi was a Shia.
"The mosque was built by Mir Bakshi on the temple. He was a Shia.even if the land is allotted then it should be given to Shias, not Sunnis," he said while speaking to ANI in Lucknow.
"The 5-acre land should not be given to Sunnis in Ayodhya. The land should be given for charitable purposes. This is not right," he addded.
In a unanimous verdict, the Supreme Court last month cleared the way for the construction of a Ram temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya and directed the Centre to allot a separate five-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board to build a mosque.
