Supreme court will decide on early hearing in Babri Masjid dispute case


The Supreme court on Friday said that it will take a decision on early hearing of the long pending Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid demolition case.

A bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud announced this decision. The decision was taken after BJP leader Subramanian Swamy mentioned the matter for urgent listing and hearing. He urged that the main appeals against the Allahabad High Court order are pending for the last seven years in the apex court and they required an urgent hearing.

He also mentioned about the petition filed by him earlier seeking the permission to practice his right to worship without much hassle at the site.

Regarding the Babri-Masjid case, in 2010 the Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court had thought of a solution which even got the majority of 2 out of 3 judges on the bench. The three-judge bench had said the land be partitioned equally among three parties, the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and ‘Ram Lalla’.

No date is fixed till now for the next hearing regarding the case.
