Why link Ram Mandir with elections? PM Modi questions Kapil Sibal

Never asked Sibal to get Ayodhya case postponed: Sunni Board We Stand By Kapil Sibal's Request In SC To Postpone Babri Masjid Case Hearing, Says Main Petitioner

Sibal on Supreme Court said that since the court's decision in the case would have "very serious ramifications", the hearing be deferred till July 2019 by which time the general election would be over.

In a fresh twist to the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute, the Sunni Waqf Board on Wednesday disassociated itself from senior advocate Kapil Sibal's arguments in the Supreme Court, seeking postponement of hearing in the matter till the 2019 elections.

Earlier in the day, PM Narendra Modi attacked Congress' Kapil Sibal for linking the Ram temple issue to the Lok Sabha elections.

The Congress hit back saying the BJP chief is not even aware of the history of the case and insisted that the party will abide by the court's verdict pointing out that it should be lawyer's personal choice who he wants to represent in the court. Congress leader Anand Sharma said that Prime Minister was diverting the issue from lack of development in Gujarat. "No such directive had been given by the board", Chairman of the Uttar Pradesh Sunni Waqf Board Zafar Farooqui said. I do not know on whose behalf the counsel for the Muslims appearing in the apex court, Kapil Sibal had stated this.

Another party to the case, Haji Mehboob said he also wanted early disposal of the matter and did not approve of Sibal's stand.

"The board is of the view that hearing in the case be held and the matter be disposed of promptly". His statement in the court was wrong.

"But you dare say that the case should not be heard till 2019 elections". "Whenever the Congress wants to take a different stand on an issue, it keeps Kapil Sibalji in the forefront". "Everybody said that if we take a stand against it, we will face a backlash in the UP elections, but we took a stand and the Supreme Court asked us to form a law in six months", he said.

The Congress Party then furthered the war of words and said the BJP was raking up non-issues just to garner votes. I request the PM to be a little more careful before making such public comments. The stakeholders in the case had moved the top court after the Allahabad High Court directed the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and the Lord Ram Lalla to settle for a three-way division of the disputed site.
