Ayodhya land dispute: Hearing to begin from December 5

Babri Masjid vs Ram Mandir Why is the Ayodhya case back in the news

The Supreme Court, that today began hearing in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit dispute, granted time till December 5 to translate the historic documents related to the case.

Nearly seven years after the Allahabad High Court's September 30, 2010 order dividing the 2.7-acre disputed land at the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid site equally between Ram Lalla, Nirmohi Akhara and Sunni Waqf Board, the Supreme Court is scheduled to take up cross-appeals on August 11.

The court added that time frame fixed by it for completion of the pleadings is final, and no adjournment will be granted.

Filing an affidavit, the Shia Waqf Board on Tuesday said a mosque can be built in a Muslim-dominated area maintaining a reasonable distance from Lord Ram's birthplace in Ayodhya.

The Shia Waqf Board had filed an affidavit before the apex court in which it stated that a mosque can be constructed at a place near birth place of Lord Ram. During the entire hearing before the High Court, the Shia board never took any such stance and hence it does will not stand before the SC, Jilani also said.

The mosque was demolished by Hindu Karsevaks on December 6, 1992 in Ayodhya.

Taboubi et ses lieutenants n'y sont pas allés de main morte dénonçant des déclarations inopportunes, contraires au processus démocratiques et qui sont de nature à troubler l'action du gouvernement.

This suggestion was strongly objected to by the Sunni Waqf Board represented by senior advocate Anoop Chaudhari and senior advocates Kapil Sibal and Rajeev Dhawan, appearing for some of the opposing parties.

At the outset, BJP Subramanian Swamy submitted that he has filed a writ petition seeking declaration of his right to worship was to be given precedent over the right to property and it must be decided first.

Their stand was strongly opposed by the counsel for Lord Ram Lalla and the UP government which said that nearly seven years have passed since the judgement of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court and the contesting parties should have completed the translation work earlier. "We can't wait for translations", the bench said.

It came just a few days after the apex court agreed to fast track the proceedings on a string of appeals, challenging the Allahabad High Court verdict on the land dispute in the case.

Numerous original plantiffs and defendants in the matter including Mohd Hashim, who was the first person to take the matter to the apex court, have died. Incidentally, Justice Misra is set to become the Chief Justice of India (CJI) on August 28.

In 2010, the Allahabad High Court issued its judgement in the Ayodhya land dispute case, dividing the area of 2.77 acres among three parties - the Sunni Waqf board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.
