Uttar Pradesh Shia Central Waqf Board chairman Waseem Rizvi has once again triggered controversy by saying mosques built on land where once temples stood should be given back to Hindus.

Rizvi, in a letter written to All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) chairman Maulana Rabe Hasan Nadvi, asked the Muslim body to surrender nine religious disputed sites, including the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya to Hindus.

The 9 places Rizvi asked to return to Hindus are: the Babri mosque in Ayodhya; Keshav Dev Temple in Mathura; Kashi Vishwanath Temple in Varanasi; Atal Dev temple in Jaunpur (all in Uttar Pradesh); Rudra Mahalaya temple in Batna, Gujarat; Bhadrakali temple in Ahmedabad, Gujarat; Adina Mosque in Pandua, West Bengal; Vijaya temple in Vidhisha, Madhya Pradesh; and Mosque Kuvutul Islam Qutub Minar in Delhi.
