The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court has called upon the rival parties to explore the possibility of a last-minute amicable settlement of the Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute.
The court has asked all parties in the title suits to appear on September 17 in this regard. If no reconciliation takes place, the court will go ahead with declaring the verdict on September 24.
The order was passed on an application moved by senior advocate Prashant Chandra on the 125-year old litigation over claims by Hindus and Muslims to the disputed site in Ayodhya.
Even as a three-judge special bench of the high court is to pronounce the verdict in the case Sep 24, Justice Dharam Veer Sharma chose to hear the application and pass an order.
Advocates Neeraj Kumar Srivastava and Jaspreet Singh Singh had prepared separate applications urging the court to defer the verdict, expressing fears that the judgment could vitiate the communal environment across the country.
The High Court registry had refused to accept the application on the ground that only one of the three judges was available as the other two Justice S.U. Khan and Justice Sudhri Agarwal were currently holding court in Allahabad.
‘In view of the prevailing situation across the country, we are seeking postponement of the verdict scheduled to be pronounced Sep 24,’ Srivastava told reporters here.
Rival claims by Hindu and Muslim groups to the site led to the demolition of the 16th century Babri Masjid by Hindu mobs Dec 6, 1992, triggering widespread communal violence that left thousands dead across the country.
Verdict response to
be democratic: RSS
The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Tuesday said its response to the court verdict on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute would be “democratic” and “within the law”.
“A Ram temple at Ramjanmabhoomi is the wish of any Hindu. And so is our wish. But we await the court verdict and the response will be democratic and within the law,” RSS ‘sarsanghachalak’ Mohan Rao Bhagwat told reporters at the Indian Women’s Press Corps here.
