Supreme Court refuses urgent hearing on Ayodhya dispute case

The Supreme Court on November 12 has rejected a plea seeking an urgent hearing in the Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case. 

The top court said it had already fixed January 2019 as the time and there was no need to rush it.

A SC bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, had on October 29, said that the appropriate bench will decide the future course of hearing in January 2019 in pleas challenging the Allahabad High Court’s 2010 verdict on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute.

“We will fix the date of hearing of the Ayodhya dispute case before the appropriate bench in January,” the top court bench, had said.

In 2010, the Allahabad High Court had divided the disputed land on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid area into three parts among Ram Lalla, Nirmohi Akhada and the Sunni Waqf Board. The appeals have been filed against Allahabad HC order.
