HYDERABAD: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday said the All India Muslim Personal Law Board must appeal against the Supreme Court order allowing repair of facilities at makeshift Ramlala Temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya.
"AIMPLB must appeal against or implead itself in this particular case," tweeted the MP from Hyderabad shortly after the apex court order.
Owaisi, president of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), is also an executive member of AIMPLB, an apex body of Indian Muslims.
The Supreme Court on Monday allowed repairing of covers and providing other facilities at makeshift Ramlala Temple on the disputed Babri Masjid-Rama Janmabhoomi site.
The court said the exercise has to be undertaken by district collector of Faizabad under the supervision of two independent observers.
The apex court on Friday had asked the central and Uttar Pradesh governments to make available whatever facilities that could be extended to pilgrims going to Ayodhya to offer prayers at the disputed site.
A bench of Justice Anil R. Dave and Justice Kurian Joseph had asked both governments to do whatever was necessary
"The prayer is for some facilities. If you can make these available, then do it. If possible to do something, do it," Justice Dave had told the counsel representing the governments.
Uttar Pradesh government, however, said that all the facilities were being made available to the pilgrims and none of them were aggrieved.
Uttar Pradesh Advocate General V.B. Singh had told the court that only the petitioner (BJP leader Subramanian Swamy) is aggrieved.
