Hyderabad: The Executive Committee of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) meet here at the weekend is expected to decide move the Supreme Court with five more appeals against the Allahabad High Court judgement on Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid title issue in Ayodhya.

Earlier four appeals have been filed before the Supreme Court, Rahim Qureshi, Assistant General Secretary of AIMPLB, said here today.

The 51-member policy-making executive committee, which will be held at Dar-ul-Uloom in Shivrampally near here, is expected to file five more appeals against the 8162-page judgement of the high court which was "based on faith and not evidence," Quershi added.

On September 30 last year, the Allahabad High Court had ruled that the 2.77 acre disputed land in Ayodhya be divided into three parts among Hindus and Muslims and held that the place where the makeshift temple of Lord Rama currently exists belongs to Hindus.

The two-day AIMPLB executive meet, which is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday and will be presided by Moulana Syed Mohammed Rabe Hasan Nadvi, is likely to disscuss at length issues like controversial Wakf Amendment Bill 2010, the Direct Tax Code Bill and the autonomy of Madrasas.

The Darul-Qazzat-Sharia courts, which was proposed by AIMPLB to resolve disputes among muslims, was "misunderstood" and it is basically meant to lesser the burden of regular courts, Qureshi said adding the executive will also take appropriate steps in this regard.
