A petition has been filed in the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court on Wednesday regarding the dispute of five acres out of the total 29 acres of land allotted to the UP Sunni Central Waqf Board to build a mosque in Dhanipur village in Ayodhya.

This petition has been filed on behalf of Rani Kapoor Punjabi and Rama Rani Punjabi of Delhi. A hearing on this is expected on February 8.

In the petition, the two women have claimed their right on five acres out of the allotted land. It is further said that a case is also under consideration before the Settlement Officer Consolidation in respect of the said five acres of land.

According to the petitioner’s advocate, the petitioner’s parents had come from Punjab in Pakistan at the time of partition. Their father settled in Faizabad (now Ayodhya) District. Later, he got a job as an auctionist in Nazul department. Their father Gyan Chandra Punjabi was given a lease of about 28 acres in village Dhannipur, Pargana Magalasi, Tehsil Sohawal, District Faizabad for five years for Rs 1,560.  Even after five years, the said land remained in the use of the family of the petitioners and the name of the father of the petitioners was recorded in the revenue records related to the said land as Assamese.

However, their father’s name was removed from the records pertaining to the said land by Sohawal SDM in the year 1998, against which the mother of the petitioners fought a long legal battle with the Additional Commissioner who decided in their favor.

The petitioners said that even after the order of the Additional Commissioner, a dispute arose over the revenue record of the said land again during the consolidation. A case was then filed before the Settlement Officer Consolidation against the order of the Consolidation Officer, which is still under consideration.
