This led to stiff opposition from the petitioners in the Ayodhya title suit and also led to the ex-communication of Syed Waseem Rizvi from Islam.
Lucknow: The chairman of the Shia Waqf Board, Syed Waseem Rizvi will release the trailer of a film on Ayodhya on Monday. The film chronicles the timeline of the Ayodhya movement and focuses on the fact that the faith of millions was challenged by fundamentalists that led to a divide between India’s two largest communities.
Syed Waseem Rizvi, in recent months, has been a strong supporter of Ram temple in Ayodhya and even offered prayers at the makeshit temple a few weeks ago. He even gave an application in the Supreme Court saying that the Shia community was ready to give up its claim on the disputed land so that the grand Ram temple could be built.
This led to stiff opposition from the petitioners in the Ayodhya title suit and also led to the ex-communication of Syed Waseem Rizvi from Islam. The announcement of the film on Ayodhya comes at a time when the Supreme Court has postponed hearing of the title suit to January and Hindu organizations including VHP are trying to revive the temple movement in a big way.
