Ayodhya dispute: SC to begin final hearing on Dec 5, grants three months time for translation of documents

Ayodhya dispute: Apex court begins hearing pleas against HC verdict

The Uttar Pradesh government insisted that the court hearing begin soon and the parties could, on their own, translate the documents they intend to rely on as and when they require them during the hearings. During the entire hearing before the High Court, the Shia board never took any such stance and hence it does will not stand before the SC, Jilani also said.

MC Dhingra, the lawyer appearing for Shia Waqf Board in the Ayodhya case, while speaking to ANI on the same, said that the Shia Board has chose to leave the one-third land allotted to them, to avoid problems for both the religious denominations, in regard to their prayers.

Another sect of the Muslims under the banner of Shia Central Waqf Board of Uttar Pradesh recently went to the court offering a solution that a mosque could be built in a Muslim- dominated area at a "reasonable distance" from the disputed site in Ayodhya.

The mosque was demolished by Hindu Karsevaks on December 6, 1992 in Ayodhya.

Their stand was strongly opposed by the counsel for Lord Ram Lalla and the UP government which said that nearly seven years have passed since the judgement of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court and the contesting parties should have completed the translation work earlier.

The state government has been charged to translate all the required documents in Urdu and Hindi within the next 12 weeks.

Supreme Court was hearing a batch of petitions challenging the Allahabad court verdict in the Ayodhya dispute case.

However, the ASG's statement evoked sharp opposition from senior advocates appearing on behalf of the Sunni Waqf Board and other parties. "We can't wait for translations", the bench said.

However, the bench said it was doing so as the parties have not allowed the registrar to complete the formalities.

Incumbent CJI JS Khehar constituted the special bench after BJP leader Subramanian Swamy approached the apex court on July 21 to seek an early hearing of the civil dispute between Hindu and Muslim organisations over ownership of the Ram temple-Babri Masjid land.

Swamy made his plea for an early hearing on the grounds that the main appeals against the high court order have been pending for the last seven years.

A three-judge Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court had on September 30, 2010 given a unanimous decision that Lord Ram was born under the central dome of the makeshift temple and Hindus have a right to worship there.
