The proposed model of the mosque to be built in Dhannipur, Ayodhya.
- The two sisters alleged that the local administration had allotted their land for the mosque without taking permission from them.
The Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court has rejected the petition of two Delhi-based sisters who have claimed claim to the mosque land at Dhanipur in Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh. The petitioner’s counsel, believing in his own mistake, had sought the withdrawal of the petition, which was accepted by the bench.
This order was passed by Justice Devendra Kumar Upadhyay and Justice Manish Kumar. On behalf of the government, Additional Advocate General Ramesh Kumar Singh opposed the petition and said that the Gata number of the land allotted for the mosque in Dhannipur is different from the number mentioned in the petition. The petition is therefore based on erroneous facts and is liable to be dismissed. On this, the petitioner’s counsel HGS Parihar pleaded his mistake and demanded the withdrawal of the petition. The bench rejected the petition.
Accused of giving land for mosque without permission
Earlier both the sisters had said in their claim that we have no problem with the mosque. We only want the court to get our land planted under the supervision of competent authorities. Both sisters claim that the local administration allotted their land to the mosque without taking permission from them. For this reason, he had to knock the court door.
