Supreme Court to start final hearings in Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri case today

Babri Masjid dispute:Islam allows mosque to be shifted:MLB member

In a first, All India Muslim Personal Law Board Member Maulana Salman Nadvi on Friday supported the construction of Ram Mandir at the disputed site in Ayodhya.

"We are treating it only as a land dispute". A three-judge bench led by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said that the apex court would not be swayed by the history of the religious conflict and the violence associated with it. It can not be held that the activists represent this vast majority and the Chief Justice told their lawyer that the court will not allow any interveners. We are not dismissing them...

A special bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra was hearing the civil appeals, arising out of 2010 verdict of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court, which in a 2:1 majority ruling, had ordered that the disputed land be partitioned equally among three parties - the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.

One such intervention application pending before the Bench is from BJP leader Subramanian Swamy. It did not commit to a "dayto- day" hearing of the case.

China opposes new USA nuclear strategy
Since taking office in 2012 President Xi Jinping has pushed for a muscular China, including calls last October to develop a "world-class" military by 2050.

The Supreme Court on Thursday adjourned hearing in the politically-sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case to 14 March stating that documentation and translations are yet to be completed.

In May past year, a Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Lucknow charged senior BJP leaders Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Union Minister Uma Bharti with criminal conspiracy in Babri Masjid demolition case. He pointed out that the CJI sitting on Constitution benches had been breaking the bench frequently to attend to other matters as well and added that this would not work in the case of the present appeals. Appearing for UP Sunni Central Waqf Board, Sibal had said that the hearing should be deferred to July 2019, suggesting that it be held after the outcome of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. On Thursday, Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Uttar Pradesh government, said a total of 524 exhibits had been filed in court besides 20 books.

The Bench further directed the Registry to supply copies of two video cassettes filed before the court to parties to the case on payment of its cost. He also said that he respects the Supreme Court but the decision is getting delayed.

"At least 700 cases involving ordinary citizens can be disposed of in 25 days if the court deals with them for about an hour-and-a-half", Justice Misra said.
