SC To Review Petitions Seeking To Ayodhya Verdict Review, Tomorrow
New Delhi: Since the landmark verdict of Ayodhya land dispute, the Supreme Court received a number of petitions, seeking review of the judgement, which Supreme Court will be reviewing this Thursday.
However, this time, the petitions will be heard in in-chamber and not in open court which is normal procedure. A five-member bench will hear these petitions, which are numbering 10 in number, include the All India Muslims Personal Law Board and the Nirmohi Akhara. Review petitions have been filed by as many as 40 civil rights activists, even though they were not parties to the original case.
Although these petitioners claim that hey do not look to disturb the peace but add that any peace must be conducive to justice.
Muslim petitioners calling this review a quest for justice, have said, with respect to this case, they have always maintained peace but have been victims of violence and unfair treatment.
Among the petitions filed, one of them says about the top court's verdict in the case: "Condones serious illegalities of destruction, criminal trespass, and violation of rule of law including damaging the Mosque and eventually destroying it".
One of the original petitioners, Nirmohi Akhara, in its petition, said it was looking for clarification over its role. The Supreme Court had directed the centre to provide "adequate representation" for the Akhara in the trust that is to be formed to oversee the construction of a temple at the spot.
The landmark judgement was passed by a five member bench, which was headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi on November 9. A unanimous verdict was passed by the bench, that gave all 2.77 acres of disputed Ayodhya land to Ram Lalla (the infant Lord Ram). The Supreme Court also directed the central government to provide the Sunni Waqf Board five acres of land, in a "suitable, prominent place in Ayodhya", to build a mosque. The judgement was passed on the basis of the report by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) that confirmed a structure existed before the mosque but did not specify if it was a temple. The court in its 1,045-page order, admitted Muslims had been wrongly deprived of the mosque.
The Supreme Court also said : "...on a balance of probabilities, the evidence in respect of the possessory claim of the Hindus to the composite whole of the disputed property stands on a better footing than the evidence adduced by the Muslims."
