"For the past 25 years people of the country, particularly minorities, wanted to know who conspired to demolish Babri Masjid. They would be prosecuted in the next two years and punished for the crime," reacted Board Secretary and Legal Advisor Jafrayab Jilani. Jilani pointed out that the conspiracy case was far more heinous and of serious nature than the ongoing title case in the Supreme Court.

The Board Secretary said revival of the case against the conspirators would bring justice to the families of thousands of Muslims who ...

Uttar Pradesh minister Mohsin Raza on Tuesday dubbed All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) as 'All India Maulawi (Cleric) Personal Law Board' and said the organisation which does not work for the welfare of society, but endorses practice like triple talaq should be banned.
