Zafur Faruqi, Chairman of UP Central Waqf Board has said that the Board will not seek review of the Ayodhya Verdict delivered by Supreme Court today. Faruqi issued a statement that clearly says, "..I, as a Chairman of UP Sunni Central Waqf Board, want to make it clear that UP Sunni Central Waqf Board (UPSCWB) will not go in any review of Apex Court's order or file any curative petition..."
At the very beginning of the statement, Faruqi has welcomed Ayodhya Verdict.
The Board has clearly mentioned in its statement that any person (including a lawyer) or an organisation making a claim of the Board making a review is "not" following "our line".
This specific mention may be aimed at Zafaryab Jilani, the lawyer of Sunni Waqf Board, who earlier today said that Waqf Board will seek a review of Supreme Court's decision.
Here is the full text of the statement issued by Sunni Waqf Board.
