New Delhi: The Supreme Court has adjourned hearing of Ayodhya Ram Mandir and Babri Masjid land dispute case. The hearing on this case will now be on July 5 after the summer vacation. The bench of three judges of the Supreme Court’s hearing began on Tuesday, but it has been postponed.
Earlier, on April 27, the Bench of three judges, headed by Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in the Ayodhya case, extended the hearing of the case till May 15. In the previous hearing, Advocate Raju Ramachandran of Sunni Waqf Board, submitted his report and said that this matter should be handed over to a large constitutional bench. Ramachandran had appealed to the court that the acceptance of this case of national importance was widely accepted.
In this matter, Hindu Mahasabha’s advocate Vishnu Shankar had said that this matter is not of the Constitution, only a property dispute. So there is no need to send it to the larger bench.
The Supreme Court had refused to hand over the Ayodhya dispute to the Constitution Bench. On behalf of a Muslim party senior advocate Rajiv Dhawan had told a three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Deepak Mishra that land dispute be handed over to the Constitution Bench as it is more important than the issue of popular polygamy practice in the Muslim community.
On this, the court said that after hearing all the parties, it will be decided to hand over it to the constitution bench. Dhawan told the bench, “The Ayodhya land dispute is more important than the traditional polygamy practice in the Muslim community and the whole nation wants the answer.”
The 3-member bench of the Supreme Court, on whether to hand over the matter to the Constitution Bench or not, will take a decision soon.
