BJP on Saturday said the All India Muslim Personal Law Board had the right to approach the Supreme Court on the Ayodhya title suit verdict but insisted that there was growing opinion among the people that the issue should be resolved through reconciliation and dialogue.


"Any party is free to appeal against any verdict in the Supreme Court and this right is inherent in the constitution. As far as I know, AIMPLB was not one of the parties fighting the Ayodhya title suit (in Allahabad High Court) but it can go to the apex court," BJP Chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said.

Incidentally, Prasad was also the advocate for Ramlala Virajmaan in the Ayodhya title suit.

The senior BJP leader maintained that there was an overwhelming opinion among the people that after the High Court verdict, the matter should be resolved out of court.

"There is a groundswell of opinion among the people that the issue should be resolved in a spirit of reconciliation, amity and brotherhood. Everybody, the minority community included, should try to find an amicable solution," he said.

The High Court had on September 30 directed trifurcation of the 2.77 acre disputed land in Ayodhya with two parts going to Hindus and the third to the Sunni Waqf Board.
