SC to consider early hearing in Ayodhya land dispute

The Supreme Court today said it will take a decision to list for early hearing a batch of petitions challenging the Allahabad High Court verdict in the Ram Temple-Babri Masjid land dispute case. The apex court said the intervener can not move for early hearing, adding that it would hear the matter once the parties agree for a date.

In its March 21 order, the apex court said that fresh attempts must be made by all parties to end the Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute through a negotiated settlement.

The Ayodhya dispute has been pending in the SC since 2010.

At that time Chief Justice JS Khehar said if the parties want him to mediate, then he is ready for the task.

Chief Justice Khekar also offered to sit down as principal negotiator with the mediators chosen by warring parties to settle the dispute surrounding the Babri Masjid-Ramjanambhoomi land dispute.

The order came while responding to a petition by filed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy.On March 31, the apex court had refused Swamy's plea seeking urgent and expeditious hearing of the Ayodhya matter. The HC on September 30, 2010 had delivered a judgement dividing the 2.7 acre disputed land into three equal parts between Sunni Wakf Board, Nirmohi Akhara and "Ram Lalla", the idol. After the court refused, Swamy said that he was not happy with it.

A bench of Chief Justice J.S. Khehar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud told BJP leader Subramanian Swamy that the matter will be listed for hearing after Mr Swami pleaded for urgent listing of the appeals and his intervention petition which has been tagged with the appeals.
