SC Review of Ayodhya Verdict

New Delhi: The Supreme Court of India will begin in-chamber review on a bunch of petitions challenging the November 9 verdict in the Ayodhya title suit on Thursday.

The apex court had allocated the land where Babri Masjid stood till December 06, 1992 for the construction of Ram temple, and granted five-acre land to Muslim parties for the construction of mosque elsewhere in Ayodhya.

The new five-judge bench is headed by Chief Justice S.A. Bobde and comprises Justices Ashok Bhushan, S.A. Nazeer, D.Y. Chandrachud and Sanjiv Khanna. Justice Khanna is the new judge on the bench who has replaced retired Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi.

The in-chamber review will begin at 1:40 p.m. A total of 18 review petitions have been filed in the apex court in connection with its November 9 judgement. The bulk comprises review pleas from Muslim parties expressing discontent with the judgement.

On Wednesday, the Nirmohi Akhara also filed a review seeking clarification on its role and extent of representation of Nirmohi Akhara in the trust directed to be created through the apex court judgement.

"It is submitted the role of Nirmohi Akhara has not been spelt out with specificity which is necessary to rule out ambiguity and future disputes," said the Akhara in its review plea.

The Akhara contends that the extent of its role is not spelt out in the direction and is instead left to the central government. The Akhara also sought restoration of its other temples.

Besides these petitions, Hindu Maha Sabha has also filed a review petition objecting allotment of alternate land to Muslims. Hindu Maha Sabha is also asking SC to expunge some of the observations it has made in its verdict.
