The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), just two days before the hearing on petitions against Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act,) has submitted a fresh plea urging Supreme Court to not interfere with the 1991 Act, citing disturbances in the law and order situation.

AIMPLB, in its plea, has said that the Srikrishna Commission set up to enquire into the causes of the riots in Mumbai in December 1992 and January 1993 and the causes of the serial bomb blasts that occurred in March 1993 had found out that  the December 1992 riots were due to the hurt feeling that the Muslims felt by the shameful act of demolition of Babri Masjid on 6 December 1992 which were followed till January 1993.

The Muslim body said there seems to be a trend of filing the PIL petitions selectively targeting the issues relating to a particular minority for the reason of fuelling the communal tension.

It further added that the Act does not violate any cultural rights of any section of the people and it envisages peaceful co-existence and thereby promotes diversity of cultures in our country.

The AIMPLB said that the current petitioners are wrecking vengeance on the present generation of the Muslims who had played no part in inflicting such alleged insults on the Hindus of the distant past. “

The plea further claimed that there have been innumerable instances in history where the Jains and Buddhist places of worships have been converted in to Hindu temples or where the Mosques were turned to a gurudwaras as well.

The Supreme Court on September 9 had said that the petitions against the Act will be heard by a three-judge bench on October 11 and had asked the parties to complete the pleadings before the hearing. The top court said the Solicitor General has been granted two weeks to file an affidavit.
