Supreme Court continued the hearing of Ayodhya case on a daily basis for the 8th day. On Tuesday, Ram Lalla (one of the stakeholders in the Ayodhya disputed land case) counsel told that the Babri Masjid was built in the place of the temple.

Senior Advocate CS Vaidyanathan told that either the existing temple was torn down or the temple was already in ruins when the Mosque was constructed. For proving his point, he presented the Artifacts and historic records as a piece of evidence.

He specifially leaned on the ASI (Archaeological Survey of India) findings and a document providing information about a stone slab. The stone slab is said to have contained Sanskrit verse from 12th-century giving information about King Govinda Chandra. As per the verses, he ruled the Saketa Mandala kingdom whose capital was Ayodhya. It further said that a big Vishnu temple was present at his time which was later found to be true according to ASI findings.

The slab was found by Jounraslist Ramnath from Panchajanya magazine, from the western wall of the southern dome when Kar Sevaks demolished the Babri Masjid in December 1992.

In the post-lunch hearing, CS Vaidyanathan told the bench that according to the Muslim religion, if a Mosque has been built after the demolition of a temple, Muslims will not consider it a mosque. A Mosque cannot be built on a forcibly occupied place, he told the Bench.


The case is being heard by COntiution Bench which comprises Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justice SA Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S A Abdul Naseer. The Bench is hearing the appeals against the September 30, 2010 verdict of the Allahabad High Court in Ayodhya land dispute case. In its verdict, Allahabad high court had divided the 2.77-acre in Ayodhya among the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla equally.

The Daily hearings were started from 6th august after the mediation panel headed by Judge F M Ibrahim Kalifullah failed to find an amicable solution and reach any conclusion.
