New Delhi: Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind (JUH) will lend its full support to the Sunni Central Waqf Board in the Babri Masjid title suit which has now reached the Supreme Court.

The National Executive of JUH took the decision at the meeting held here on 29-30 December. India’s largest Muslim organization, however, did not rule out challenging the HC verdict directly if needed.

The meeting also deliberated the implications of Right to Education Act particularly its impacts on the country’s madrasa system. They took into account the recent guidelines issued by the HRD Ministery to offset the apprehensions of the Muslim community over the fallout of the act on Madarsa system. The JUH decided to meet Mr. Kapil Sibal, Union HRD Minister to press him to come out with parliamentary amendment – which was promised by him at the conference convened by Jamiat in August 2010 in Delhi.

The National Executive of JUH unanimously nominated Maulana Mahmood Madani, Jamiat leader and Member of Rajya Sabha, as JUH General Secretary for the year 2010-11. Maulana Madani had relinquished this post in 2008 owing to conflict and later split in the Jamiat.

Niaz Ahmed Farooqui, Secretary, JUH, informed that a JUH delegation will soon meet Prime Minister of India to demand expeditious implementation of the recommendations of Sachar Committee and Ranganath Mishra Commission.

The meet constituted a committee to look into hurdles in the construction of religious places in Uttar Pradesh on the pretext of a Supreme Court verdict, Farooqui added.
