The Sunni Waqf Board on Wednesday distanced itself from Haji Mehboob – who claimed to be a member of the board – saying he does not represent the board in any capacity. Uttar Pradesh chairman of the board, Zufar Ahmed Farooqui, said Mehboob was just another plaintiff in the case, and the Sunni Waqf Board did not agree with his personal opinion, IANS reported.

Earlier on Wednesday, Mehboob said he disagreed with lawyer Kapil Sibal’s request in the Supreme Court to adjourn the final hearing in the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi case until after the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, ANI reported.

Mehboob told  : “Yes, Kapil Sibal is our lawyer, but sometimes, from his statements, it seems that he

is part of a political party. I know him as a lawyer, not as a political leader. He is wrong, we want a solution in the matter at the earliest.”

However, the Sunni Waqf Board on Wednesday clarified that neither was Mehboob a part of their board, nor was Sibal representing them in the case. Advocate Shakil Ahmed, one of the lawyers arguing for the Sunni Waqf Board in the case, said that Mehboob has “no connection” with his client.

Zafaryab Jilani, a member of the Babri Masjid Action Committee, told , “Whatever Kapil Sibal said in the Supreme Court yesterday [on Tuesday] was said after thorough consideration and after taking us into confidence. We totally support his stand.”
