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.
