Supreme Court dismisses intervention applications in Ayodhya case


Another applicant for intervention was a lawyer who had come armed with signature of 10,000 residents of twin cities of Ayodhya and Faizabad who sought the intervention of the court for an out-of-court settlement.

In this regard, Rajeev Dhawan, counsel for one of the appellants said, "The court will have to decide what is the meaning of a mosque".

The petitions before the judges relate to the 2010 verdict of the Allahabad High Court in the title suit that had been pending for almost six decades.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday started the crucial hearing in the Ayodhya dispute as a "pure land dispute", throwing out all 32 intervention applications by a single order and ordering the Registry not to entertain any new applications in the case.

To which, the SC agreed and ordered a revival of his writ petition and posted the same for hearing before an "appropriate bench".

When the Special Bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer told him that he is not a party to the core issue of property dispute before it, Dr Swamy insisted that his fundamental rights are higher than the property rights.

BJP leader Subramanium Swamy objected to the contentions made and submitting that his writ petition seeking his fundamental right to pray was converted to an intervention application at the court's instance. We can't appoint or suggest anyone for settlement. It will take up the matter for further hearing on March 23. It had also said that it would treat the case only as a land dispute. The court is hearing 13 appeals against a 2010 judgement by Allahabad High Court on four civil suits filed over the title of the land that is known to Hindus as the "Ram Janmabhoomi", or the land where Hindu God Lord Ram was born.

Union Minister Giriraj Singh on Wednesday said that Muslims should follow in the footsteps of Shia Waqf Board and support the construction of Ram temple on the disputed site.

On 6 December 1992, thousands of karsevaks who gathered in Ayodhya from across the country, demolished the Babri Masjid at the presence of security forces.

Around 2,000 people were killed in the ensuing riots. The judges thus trimmed the dispute to exclusively between Sunni Waqf Board, Nirmohi Akhara and the Ram Lalla (nascent Lord Ram), parties in the original suit in the HC, which had on September 30, 2010 ordered a three-way division of the disputed 2.77 acres of land between the parties.
