When Da Vinci Code suggested the possibility of the descendant of Jesus, we knew that it is arguably impossible. But this man, identified as Prince Yakub Habeebuddin Tucy has come out with a revelation that will make your ears fall on the ground.
This 42-year old man claims to be a descendant of the last Mughal emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar. With that, he also demanded to take over Babri Masjid site in Ayodhya. The resident of Hyderabad also said that he is ready to prove it by conducting a DNA test.
On Tuesday, Prince Yakub Habeebuddin Tucy held a news conference where he stated that an application to UP Sunni Central Waqf Board has been sent by him seeking mutawwali-ship (caretaker) of the site.
He added that he has asked the Sunni Waqf board to respond by 15 November. If he does not receive any reply by then, he will go to the Supreme Court.
The man states that it’s not the first time that he is staking a claim of mutawwaliship to his ancestors’ property. He has previously asked a civil court in Hyderabad to acknowledged his lineage.
So far there has been no advancement on his application but if this claim proves to be true then it can literally stir the matter of Babri Masjid, which is already a provocative and sensitive issue in Ayodhya.
