The Muslim parties on Saturday submitted sealed cover note on 'moulding of relief' in the Supreme Court in connection with the Ayodhya case on Saturday. Sources said that the note by the Muslim parties suggested as to what can be done in case the title/ownership isn't given to them. Among the Hindu parties, Akhil Bhartiya Hindu Mahasabha has also submitted its note. In the note, the Hindu Mahasabha has said that the Supreme Court may form a trust that can take care of the management of the Ram Mandir construction. It has also given suggestion on who should be constructing the Ram temple.
Meanwhile, Ram Janmasthan Punarudhar Samiti in its note has said that the ownership of the site should go to Ram Lala. It has also sought the Supreme Court to look into the mediation panel’s deliberations. Samiti is also of view that a trust must be formed to look into the management of the temple. Ram Lalla Virajman, who is also a litigant in the case, has also submitted a note. Ram Lalla’s note said that entire temple construction rights must be awarded to him. No ownership rights should be given to either Nirmohi Akhada and Muslim parties.
The Supreme Court Day concluded the final hearing in the politically-sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute case on October 16. The nation waits for the key verdict, which is likely to come in November next month. With Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi retiring on November 17, the Ayodhya judgment is likely to be pronounced before that. Earlier, the Sunni Waqf Board had offered to give up its claim on the disputed site in lieu of some other deal.
The day-to-day hearings in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case began in the Supreme Court on August 7 with the Nirmohi Akhara, a Hindu religious denomination, claiming Muslims had not prayed at the disputed site in Ayodhya since 1934. A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, and comprising justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer, started hearing the matter. The Allahabad High Court, in its judgment of 2010 on four civil lawsuits, had partitioned the 2.77-acre disputed land equally among Sunni Waqf Board, Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla. Fourteen appeals have been filed in the Supreme Court against the verdict. On December 6, 1992, the Babri Masjid, constructed at the disputed site in the 16th century by Shia Muslim Mir Baqi, was demolished.
Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday reiterated that Supreme Court’s judgment on Ayodhya land dispute case will be fully implemented by the state government. Talking exclusively to News Nation, the chief minsiter said also praised the top court for concluding the hearing in the politically sensitive case.
“We praise the Supreme Court for concluding the hearing in such an old case. Now the judgment has been reserved, everyone should wait for it and accept it. We have full faith in the Supreme Court. Whatever the decision be, we will implement the judgment of the top court,” Adityanath said.
During the interview, the chief minister said his government will also present a report card of his government’s 30-month tenure. Yogi also said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Uttar Pradesh is confident of winning all the 11 Assembly seats in the bypoll to be held on October 21.
