Addressing a poll rally in Jharkhand, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday said a sky-high Ram Temple will be build in Ayodhya in next four months. A 5-judge bench, headed by the then CJI Gogoi, had in a unanimous verdict on November 9 decreed the entire 2.77 acre disputed land in favour of deity 'Ram Lalla' and also directed the Centre to allot a five-acre plot to Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque in Ayodhya.
Shah’s statement came after Supreme Court of India on Thursday dismissed a batch of petitions seeking review of the its November 9 verdict in the Ayodhya land dispute verdict, which cleared the way for construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site.
The top court, which took these review pleas for consideration in-chamber, rejected them after finding no merit. There were 18 review petitions, out of which nine have been filed by parties who were part of the earlier litigation and the other nine were filed by "third parties". A number of Muslim parties, including some supported by the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, 40 activists, Hindu Mahasabha and the Nirmohi Akhara were among the parties who approached the apex court. The petitioners had stated that the decision needs to be reconsidered as there were errors apparent on the face of the record.
