New Delhi: A petition was today moved in the
Supreme Court against the verdict of the Allahabad High Court
which ruled that the disputed land in Ayodhya be divided into
three parts among Hindus and Muslims.

The petition filed by Delhi MLA Shoaib Iqbal said the
judgement, which held that the place where the makeshift
temple of Lord Rama currently exists belongs to Hindus, is
based on "faith and belief" and as such it is against the
constitution.

The MLA, who belongs to Lok Janshakti Party and was not a
party to the dispute on the title suits before the Lucknow
bench of the High Court, contended the demolished Babri Masjid
was the property of the Wakf since 1528 AD.

In the petition filed through advocate M M Kashyap, the
politician has sought a stay on the September 30 judgement
of the High Court.
