Shia leader asks Modi to repeal Places of Worship Act

Lucknow, Sep 29, 2020-

Former chairman of Shia Waqf Board, Wasim Rizvi, has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to scrap the Places of Worship Act, 1991 and said that it had been brought in by the then Congress government to appease the Muslims.

Rizvi has also suggested that temples demolished by Mughal emperors should be rebuilt and mosques which stand there should be removed.

In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Wasim Rizvi has urged that the Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act, 1991, should be immediately abrogated.

Rizvi’s letter comes in the wake a petition filed in a Mathura court, seeking ‘liberation’ of the Krishna Janmabhoomi.

“I urge you to scrap the Places of Worship Act, 1991, brought by the then Congress government to appease some Muslim organizations and violate the rights of the Hindus. Please bring in laws or set up a high-level committee to mediate and remove these mosques and rebuild the ancient temples where they stood before being demolished by the Mughal emperors,” Rizvi said in his letter.

He further wrote, “We live in a democratic country. We cannot undo the exploitation by the Mughal emperors, but giving back the religious belongings will be justice to the Hindus of the country.”

In his letter to the Prime Minister, Rizvi has named Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya, Krishna Janmabhoomi in Mathura, and Kashi Vishwanath temple in Varanasi among the prominent ancient temples that were demolished by the Mughal rulers.  (Agency)
