Prince Habeebuddin Tucy, who claims to be a direct descendant of Mughal emperor Babur has laid claim to the disputed Ram janmabhoomi site.
Tucy said he is the rightful owner of the land as a descendant of Babar, who constructed the Babri Masjid in 1529 and asked the Supreme Court to implead him in the title suit currently being heard in the court.
The 50-year-old also said that he will donate the entire land for building the Ram temple as he respects their sentiments and the belief that a Ram temple stood at the place where Babri Masjid was built. He said neither parties in the case had the documents to prove that the land belonged to them.
Tucy has visited Ayodhya thrice to offer the prayers at the makeshift temple. He said he had pledged the land for the temple during his visit last year, reports Hindustan Times.
He also apologised to the Hindu community for destruction of Ram temple. He offered a symbolic apology by placing the ‘charan-paduka’ on his head. He has offered a gold brick for building the temple.
