The way he argued the Babri Masjid-Ramjanm Bhoomi title suit in Supreme Court is excellent and praiseworthy.

All India Muslim Personal Law Board through advocate Zafaryab Jilani (secretary, AIMPLB) and other advocates, have been assisting him. The Muslim personal law board and the community holds him with highest regard. He has put his heart and soul in this case. The community shall always be indebted to him and shall be there to assist him in the cause.
