The decision on mediation in Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title case has been reserved by the Supreme Court

On Wednesday 6TH March 2019, The Supreme Court of India has reserved the order in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case. The case was heard by the Supreme Court pertaining to appointing a court-monitored mediator so that a 'permanent solution' can be made in the Ayodhya Ram Temple case.

A Constitution bench of five judges was headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi had, on February 26, advised that this dispute can be resolved via mediation and said that it would pass an order in this regard on March 6. 

Background of the case

The bench said on 26th February 2019, “We have suggested to the parties that during the interregnum a court-appointed and court-monitored mediation with utmost confidentiality could be initiated to bring a permanent solution to the issues raised in the cases,”

The Muslim side- the Sunni Waqf Board along with Nirmohi Akhada agreed for the mediation but the counsels appearing for Ram Lalla Virajman, Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha and Mahant Suresh Das did not agree to it and contended that that mediation had failed in the past and therefore, it is not an appropriate approach to resolve the dispute.

 Justice SA Bobde opined that “even if there is only one percent chance, it should be explored".

The case relates to appeals filed in an order passed in 2010 by the Allahabad High Court. By the order, the much disputed 2.77-acre land was divided into 3 equal parts. Each of the disputing parties were allotted each divided part.

The Centre, in January, asked for 67 acres of the non-disputed part to be handed over to it for the purpose of being transferred to its original owners.

The Babri Masjid structure stood on 0.313 acres. It was demolished in the year 1992 on December 6 by Kar Sevaks on. This was within the 2.77 acres disputed land.
