Sibal had on Tuesday urged the court to take up the 25-year-old matter up only after July 2019, stating that the case was being used to polarise the electorate with an eye on the polls.

Another party to the case, Haji Mehboob said he also wanted early disposal of the matter and did not approve of Sibal's stand. He, however, noted that the Congress has said the views expressed by Sibal, who represents the Sunni Waqf Board in the case in the Supreme Court, were his own.

Modi, who was back on the campaign trail in poll-bound Gujarat on Wednesday, added that he would not remain silent on the triple talaq as the issue is for the right of women.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi yesterday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that "unlike Narendrabhai" he was human and could err.

Kapil Sibal appeared in Babri Masjid title suit in Supreme Court. We want a solution to the issue at the earliest. "Now that Sunni Waqf board has said that they don't agree with what Kapil Sibal said in court, it is certain that Sibal spoke in his capacity as a Congress leader, with the blessings of their "High Command".

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), which is not a party to the case, however, favored deferring the hearing till after the next general elections claiming that the time was not right for the same now.

Addressing BJP workers during his Gujarat election campaign in Dahod, Modi said, "The Sunni Waqf Board must be congratulated for their fearless stand and for disassociating themselves from the statement of Kapil Sibal".

Rehmani also said that Sibal had talked about shifting of the hearing on the advice of the AIMPLB and other Muslim parties. "With full confidence, we can say that we completely endorse what Sibal said", Jilani said.

To a question on Sunni Waqf Board's position, Rehmani said that he has not had any talk with it in this regard.

"Why does he have to link a Ram mandir (temple) with the elections".

Speaking on the same, Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "As a lawyer, Kapil Sibal can argue any matter but he should not forget that he has been the law minister in the past".
