Board trashes seer plan

New Delhi, July 9: In a formal communication to Kanchi Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board has rejected his proposals, describing them as unjust.

The letter, sent to the Sankaracharya yesterday, said the board rejected his proposals for resolving the Ayodhya dispute as they were not even worth considering.

The letter, signed by board president Maulana Rabey Nadwi, said the Sankaracharya’s July 1 letter did contain “a veiled threat” to the Muslim community to surrender the disputed site in Ayodhya and mentally prepare for giving up claims on Kashi and Mathura, board sources said.

The communication added that the second proposal “was not even worth considering as it was merely a repeat of the Sangh parivar’s demand on the temple issue and seemed totally unreasonable”, the sources said.
