New Delhi: A committee of the All India
Muslim Personal Law Board today decided to file more than one
appeal before the Supreme Court challenging the Allahabad High
Court verdict in the Ayodhya title suits.

The meeting was attended by senior members of All
India Muslim Personal Law Board, President of AIMPLB`s Babri
Masjid Committee Abhdul Rahim Qureshi and representatives of
Sunni Central Wakf Board, which is a petitioner in the case.

The meeting chalked out the strategy of the Board in
view of the decision of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad
High Court on the issue, sources in the AIMPLB said.

The court had in a majority judgement on September 30
decided to trifurcate the disputed land among Sunni Waqf
Board, Nirmohi Akhara and `Ram Lalla`.

The sources said a view was expressed at the meeting
that no risk should be taken at this stage as the Supreme
Court was expected to give the final verdict.

The first petition was filed in the Supreme Court by
the Sunni Wakf Board on December 14, 2010 after the High Court

"The logic behind filing more than one appeal is that
all aspects of the case will represented by a number of
lawyers," the sources said.

AIMPLB member and spokesperson of the Babri Masjid
Committee S Q R Iliyas said the meeting chalked out the
strategy for future, but declined to give further details.
