For hearing on January 4th, the apex court is scheduled for taking up a batch of petitions in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case. Before the bench comprising Justice SK Kaul and chief justice Ranjan Gogoi, this matter is now listed.
This bench is expected to comprise a three-judge bench to hear nearly 14 appeals, filed in opposition to the judgement of Allahabad high court, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77 acre-wide land should be equally partitioned among the Sunni Waqf board, Ram Lalla and Nirmohi Akhara.
Yesterday, Union minister Prakash javadekar also told that the Bharatiya Janata party is of the view that on a daily basis, the ram temple land dispute case should be heard by the supreme court, for delivering an early judgement.
On being questioned about the issue, he responded that they wish that there should be a daily hearing on that matter, to come to an early judgement. Prior to the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, the government has been pressed by Hindutva groups for bringing a law for paving way for the construction of the temple in Ayodhya, without waiting for the verdict of the court.
So far the Bharatiya Janata party has not made clear about its position on the demand for a law.
