New Delhi: The Sunni Waqf Board on Thursday told the Supreme Court that Nirmohi Akhara could not lay claim to the possession of inner courtyard based on illegal acts of preventing the Muslims from offering Namaz in the Babri Mosque and placing of idols on the intervening night of 22/23 December 1949.
“You can’t commit illegality and seek to reap benefits of it. Even if you are not complicit in creating an act of illegality, you can’t erase the illegality”, Sunni Waqf Board told the five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi.
Senior counsel Rajeev Dhavan, appearing for Sunni Waqf Board, said that the illegality was committed and the certain officials of Faizabad district administration were complicit in the acts of illegalities.
