Ayodhya case hearing from December 5
12 August 2017, 10:21 | Bernard Bryant
The Babri Masjid at Ayodhya was demolished by Hindu radicals
The court gave the Uttar Pradesh government the responsibility of translating the entire gamut of oral evidence in the case within the next 10 weeks.
The Supreme Court will start final hearing on 5 December to adjudicate the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute.
The bench gave time to complete translation of almost 1 lakh pages from eight different languages to English and said the time frame fixed by it for completion of pleadings is final and no adjournment will be granted.
The high court had ruled a three-way division of the disputed 2.77 acre area at Ayodhya among the parties - the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and the Lord Ram Lalla.
"To bring quietus to the issue, Masjid can be located in a Muslim-dominated area at a reasonable distance from the most revered place of birth of Maryada Purushottam Sri Ram", it added. "Maybe that Babar ordered Abdul Mir Baqi to build mosque, Mir Baqi (Shia) chose the site and having demolished the temple got the mosque built and dedicated it to the God, thereby creating a Shia Wakf". "It is a very serious matter, don't start hearing like this", Sibal said.
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. The three-member Lucknow bench passed the verdict by a 2:1 majority.
The board alleged the mosque was being looked after by the Shia community even since it was constructed but the British government had erroneously included it amongst the Sunni Waqfs in 1944 and it had approached Faizabad civil court in 1945 which had dismissed its claim a year after. It said it needs just four weeks to translate the documentary evidence.
The Supreme Court had put the Allahabad High court verdict on hold on May 9, 2011, describing it as a "rare judgment whose operation has to be stayed".
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.
A three-judge bench, headed by Justice Dipak Misra, who is set to take over as India's 45th Chief Justice on August 28 will hear the matter. Swamy had said the main appeals against the Allahabad High Court order were pending for the last seven years in the apex court and these required urgent hearing.
It may be recalled that the Allahabad High Court had in 2010 directed that the site where the Mosque once stood be split between the Nirmohi Akhara, the Waqf Board and Ram Lalla, who were all claimants.
