  • AIMPLB member Maulana Syed Salman Hussain Nadvi says shifting of mosque is permissible

When a lawyer sought the court's permission to intervene in the matter saying it involved the faith of crores of Hindus, the bench of Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and Justices Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer said: "We can't address these kind of arguments". Among those contending the case for the Babri Masjid, the view is firming up that the issue ought to be heard by a larger Bench.

The hearing in the Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid case in the Supreme Court has been adjourned to March 14. But the court found that despite its December 5 order, the pleadings were not yet complete to allow the case to be ripe for commencement of hearing.

Referring to the Ram temple dispute, Nadvi said that their priority is to join hearts of people and strengthen the secular fabric of the country. "Once we start hearing the case, it will go on", the apex court said.

The top court was moved challenging the High Court verdict by petitioners M. Siddiqui represented by his legal heirs, the Nirmohi Akhara, the UP Sunni Central Waqf Board, Bhagwan Shri Ram Virajman, All India Hindu Mahasabha's Swami Chakrapani, the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, the Akhil Bharatiya Sri Ramjanam Bhoomi Punardhar Samiti and others.

The activists on the other hand were set to urge the special bench led by Chief Justice Dipak Misra that the 2.77 acres of disputed land shall not be given either to Hindus or Muslims but be used for a non-religious public use.


The Allahabad bench had suggested that the disputed land should be divided in three parts and be given to Ram Lalla deity, Sunni Waqf Board and Nirmohi Akhara. It also asked the parties to bring on record all documents, exhibits, translations etc for the final arguments. He also reported to have said that the mosque can be built on an alternative land near the disputed site.

Rehmani, however, said the Board will abide by the Supreme Court's decision in the matter.

A civil suit was also filed for deciding the title of the property on which the Babri Masjid stood.

After the meeting, the AOL said eminent members of the Sunni Waqf Board, All India Muslim Personal Law Board and others met Ravi Shankar and expressed support for an out-of- court settlement in the Ayodhya matter.

The Apex Court further said that the excerpts of vernacular books, which have been relied upon in the case, be translated in English and be filed within two weeks.
