Ayodhya Ram Janmabhoomi Case: Supreme Court Lists February 8, 2018 for Next Hearing

The Supreme Court of India today adjourned the hearing in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case for February 8, 2018. The case was being heard by a bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and Justices Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer.

Citing political ramifications, senior counsel Kapil Sibal asked the court to hear the matter only in July 2019. Meanwhile, appellant Muslim parties questioned the reason for hearing the case now and wondered if there was some kind of “hurry”.

The history of the Ayodhya conflict can be dated back to 1853 when two groups, Hindus and Muslims, clashed over the site of worship. However, the first lawsuit was filed on January 29, 1885, when the Mahant of Janmasthan, Raghubar Das, filed a civil suit against the Secretary of State for India in Council to build a temple at the Ram Chabutara spot. In independent India, the first lawsuit was filed after 1949, and in 1959, Nirmohi Akhara filed a litigation laying claim to the disputed site. Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh Waqf board also filed a litigation seeking possession of Babri mosque in 1961. [Source: The Indian Express]
