The All India Muslim Personal Law Board has full faith in the Supreme Court, which is hearing the Centre's petition seeking permission to erect a bullet-proof structure around the disputed Babri mosque site in Ayodhya, and expects a favourable order on the issue.
"We have full faith in the Supreme Court and hope it will give a favourable order," AIMPLB Vice President Syed Kalb-e-Sadiq said on the sidelines of a function in New Delhi.
The government on Monday sought the apex court's permission to carry out certain constructions to strengthen security at the disputed site at Ayodhya where the idol of 'Ram Lalla' is placed.
The court's permission for carrying out any constructions in the complex is needed in view of its earlier order to maintain status quo there.
Asked what the AIMPLB would do if the Supreme Court allowed the government to erect the steel structure around the Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid complex, Sadiq said they would appeal again if the order was not in their favour.
"But one thing I can assure -- that we will not take the law in our hands even if the court allows the fresh construction," Sadiq said.
He said he was "fed up" with the government and political parties for their lack of concern over the genuine problems of the people.
"I am losing faith in the whole political structure. Instead of concentrating on real issues, they go after controversial issues," he said.
