New Delhi: Ajmer Dargah leader Syed Zainul Abedin has urged for amicable resolutions to the disputes surrounding Varanasi’s Gyanvapi and Mathura’s Shahi Idgah mosques, suggesting that they should be settled outside of court through mutual consent.

Speaking at the “Paigam-e-Mohabbat Hum Sab Ka Bharat” conference organized by the Rajasthan unit of All India Sufi Sajjadanshin Council, Abedin emphasized India’s positive contribution to global peace by upholding the ideals of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, the concept of the world as one family.

He stressed the importance of addressing internal issues peacefully outside the legal system, advocating for strong initiatives towards resolution. Abedin also commented on the Citizenship Amendment Act, stating that after careful examination, it was determined that the law doesn’t affect Indian Muslims and is aimed at benefiting persecuted minority immigrants from neighboring countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. He reassured that the Act doesn’t pose any threat to Indian citizens’ citizenship status, as there are no provisions for such actions in the law.

The controversy surrounding the mosques involves claims from the Hindu side alleging that they were constructed by the Mughals upon the demolition of Hindu temples. Recent developments include a Varanasi court permitting Hindu prayers in a cellar of the Gyanvapi mosque, alongside assertions from the Hindu side regarding findings of a temple’s remnants within the mosque premises during an ASI survey.

Abedin’s remarks underline the need for peaceful dialogue and consensus-building in addressing sensitive issues, fostering harmony and understanding among diverse communities in India.
