Ayodhya Land dispute case has entered its 4th day of the hearing. The Daily hearings 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.
On 4th day, Rajeev Dhavan, Counsel representing Sunni Waqf Board, one of the stakeholders in the disputed land urged the apex court to halt the five-day hearing of the case. He said it is ‘inhuman’ and the court should hear the appeal on three days in a week rather than five.
The Counsel arguing his case said, “We will not be able to assist the court. Hearing cannot be rushed through. It is simply not possible. I will be forced to leave this case. I am being put to torture because of this case.”
On 8th August, the 5-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justices D Y Chandrachud, S A Bobde, Ashok Bhushan and S A Abdul Nazeer had decided to hear the case on a regular basis. As per the norms, the Constitution bench normally hears the matters only from Tuesday to Thursday. The court hears only fresh appeals on Monday and Friday.
In response to the counsel’s case, the Supreme Court rejected his submission and said, “Hearing in the case to be 5 days, from Monday to Friday.”
