A map, which claims to be the exact birthplace of Lord Ram and also at the centre of the massive showdown between two counsels during the final arguments of the politically-sensitive Ayodhya case has been accessed by News Nation. Rajeev Dhavan, the Muslim Counsel, had tore the map during a heated argument with senior lawyer representing the Hindu Mahasabha. Titled ‘Janma-Sthan of Lord Ram,’ the map has elaborate floor plan that shows Kaushalya Bhavan, Sita Rasoi, Sita Kup and Sumitra Bhavan. It also shows the place of Kaikayee Bhavan.
The reference to the pictorial map showing the exact birthplace of Lord Ram at the disputed site in Ayodhya by Senior advocate Vikas Singh, representing the All India Hindu Mahasabha, was objected to by Dhavan. Dhavan then asked the bench as to what he should do with it, to which the bench said that he can shred it into pieces. Dhavan then tore the pictorial map, provided by the counsel for All India Hindu Mahasabha, in the courtroom. During the arguments, Singh referred to various aspects of the Allahabad High Court judgment and said there has been long faith and belief on the part of Hindus with regard to the scared nature of the birthplace of Lord Ram. Dhavan had also objected to Singh's attempt to refer to a book on Ayodhya, written by former IPS officer Kishore Kunal, saying such attempts should be disallowed.

Meanwhile, Kunal Kishore, the publisher of map that was handed over to Advocate Dhavan: He is an intellectual, he thought if this map is presented before the court his case will become non-existent. If he had objections he could have said that in the time that was given to him.
