Hearing of Ayodhya Case finalized by SC

Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid case will be dealt as a land dispute, says Supreme Court

Though Mehta and Maqbool jointly made a plea for dismissing all intervention applications filed by people who were not party to the suit before the High Court, the bench said it was not entertaining any such application at this stage.

Speaking to reporters, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy quoted Misra as saying that the court would "certainly go on the principle of day-to-day hearing" after the next hearing.

A special bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra comprising Justice Ashok Bhushan and S A Nazeer will start the hearings. Also it is to note that the Supreme Court will hear the Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case as a "pure land dispute".

To prevent passions from trumping legal arguments, the bench said, "Whatever be the case, it is after all a land dispute".

The top court is seized of crossappeals challenging the Allahabad High Court's September 30, 2010, verdict dividing the 2.7-acre disputed land at the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid site equally between Ram Lalla, Nirmohi Akhara and Sunni Wakf Board.

Bengaluru, Feb 8 Renewing his mediation efforts on the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi dispute in Ayodhya, Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar today held a meeting here with Muslim leaders, including members from the All India Muslim Personal Law Board and Sunni Waqf Board. "What happened day before yesterday (December 5) was extremely shameful", Chief Justice Dipak Misra had said.

The petitions before the judges relate to the 2010 verdict of the Allahabad High Court in the title suit that had been pending for almost six decades. Books including Bhagavad Gita and Ramayana were submitted in the apex court on Thursday, along with 87 witness depositions.

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board today said the land dedicated for Masjid can not be sold, gifted or in any way alienated, reiterating its earlier stand on the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi dispute. It was demolished on 6 December 1992 and a suit has been filed before the high court. Since the mosque was built on orders of the Mughal emperor Babur, it was named Babri Masjid.

The top court had asked the advocates on records (AoRs), dealing with as many 14 civil appeals against the 2010 judgement of the Allahabad high court in the land dispute, to ensure that all requisite documents are translated, filed and numbered before the apex court Registry.
