SC constitutes 3-judge bench to hear petitions in Ayodhya dispute

The board said that it is fine with constructing the mosque at a reasonable distance from the most sacred place of birth of Maryada Purshottam Sri Ram.

In an affidavit, the Waqf Board told Apex Court that the Babri Masjid was its property and therefore it was the only one entitled to negotiate a settlement of the dispute.

In the year 1961, the Sunni Central Waqf Board also filed a lawsuit, demanding possession of the site and removal of idols from the mosque premises, which were placed in 1949. The Shia Waqf Board requested the Supreme Court that a special panel should be formed to look into the case.

According to me, this intervention by the Shia Waqf Board is god sent, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy said. The Waqf Board has sought time from the top court for setting up of a committee for exploring an amicable resolution of the vexatious issue.

Rizvi also said that he had been asked to intervene in the court case concerning the Ayodhya dispute.

Exactly how each base will deal with a drone based threat, "will depend upon the specific circumstances" said Davis. Davis said all bases, "retain the right of self-defense when it comes to UAVs or drones operating over [them]".

According to Hindustan Times, on 28 July, in a new twist to the Babri Masjid Ram Janambhoomi issue, the UPSCWB had made a decision to stake its claim to the disputed site in Ayodhya. The High Court having held that Babri Masjid is a waqf, rejected the claim of Sunni Board that it was Sunni waqf claimed on the basis of notification dated February 16, 1944 by the Chief Commissioner of Waqfs under the Muslim Waqfs Act, 1936.

On 21 July, the Supreme Court had said it will decide on a plea for an early hearing of appeals challenging the Allahabad High Court order directing the splitting of the disputed site at Ayodhya. The Board alleges that earlier Shia and Sunni have worked together and had deliberately lost the case.

The Special Bench will include Justices Ashok Bhushan and S. Abdul Nazeer. Appeals challenging the Allahabad High Court verdict on the disputed land will be heard by a three-judge bench.

Chief Justice J.S. Khehar said if the parties want him to mediate, then he is ready for the task.
