"The Sankaracharya's formula has not yet reached us. We are eagerly awaiting the same," the AIMPLB spokesman and Islamic scholar, Maulana Sajjad Nomani, told PTI here today.
"Once the proposal is received, it will be referred to the Board's working committee for a suitable decision, " Mr. Nomani said.
Reacting sharply to the Board member and Babri Masjid Action Committee convenor, Zafaryab Jilan's statement that the Acharya's formula would be of little help if it talked of constructing a temple at the disputed site since according to Islamic tenets the land of the mosque could not be used for any other purposes, he said that it would be premature to make any comment till the proposal was received.
The panel, which was scheduled to discuss the Liberhan Commission's proceedings, the ongoing excavation at Ayodhya and the recent visit of the Kanchi Acharya to the State capital, had now dropped the last item from its agenda, he said. Since the Acharya's proposals had not yet reached us, there was no point in discussing his visit, he said.
Acharya declines comment
Meanwhile, Sri Jayendra Saraswathi today declined to say anything on the fresh proposals.
Asked about the formula that he had sent to the Maulana, he said in Kancheepuram: "There is no formula" and declined to entertain any further question.
Asked if he would be going to Delhi, the Acharya said: "I am not going anywhere."
