Babri Masjid
Lucknow, Oct 5: One of the litigants in the Ayodhya title suit, Wakf Board on Oct 5 decided to challenge the Allahabad High Court's verdict by moving to the Supreme Court.

The Sunni Central Wakf Board denied all possibilities of out-of-court settlement on the disputed Ram janmabhoomi-Babri masjid title law suit.

"On the basis of the legal advise from experts, it was decided to challenge the verdict in the apex court," stated Wakf Board chairman, Zafar Ahmad Farooqui.

Though no exact date has been decided on moving the Supreme Court, informed Farooqui.

The Allahabad High Court on Sep 30 delivered the Ayodhya verdict, which decided that the land under the central dome of the demolished Babri Masjid is the Ram Janamsthan.

The verdict also stated the disputed land be divided into three parts, one-third to the party representing 'Ram Lala Virajman', one-third to Sunni Wakf Board and one-third to Nirmohi Akhara.

The High Court also dismissed the title suits of Sunni Wakf Board and Nirmohi Akhara and declared them to be time barred. The court also ruled that status quo be maintained for three months at the site in Ayodhya.
