SC to begin final hearing on Ayodhya dispute today

A special bench of the Supreme Court will start final hearings in the Ayodhya dispute, on Tuesday, 5th December, a day before the 25th anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition in Ayodhya. Previously, in a judgement on 30th of December 2010, Allahabad High Court after deliberating on the title of disputed land had given two-thirds land to the Hindu side and one-third to the Muslims. The decision was contested by both the parties and both approached apex court in form of 13 appeals.

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has tweeted that this is a historic opportunity and found Kapil Sibbal’s role as a lawyer for Waqf board as a contradiction to his faith

With the electoral battle of Gujarat getting polarized, all eyes are on Supreme Court. Any observations of the court might be used by various parties to further their own cause. The case will be heard by a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Mishra and comprising Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice Abdul Nazar. It is expected that the hearing will be on day-to-day basis.

The petitioners for the Hindu side include Nirmohi Akhara, Hindu Maha Sabha, Ram Lalla Virajaman, Ramesh Chandra Tripathi and Shankaracharya Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati, representing Ramjanambhoomi Punaudhar Samiti.
The Muslim side has Sunni Central Waqf Board along with five other petitioners.
