New Delhi | The Supreme Court of India will on Tuesday start daily hearing of the Ayodhya Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case after the mediation panel failed to come to a conclusion.
A five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had ordered the intermediary 3-member panel to attempt for an out-of-court settlement.
Supreme Court had appointed them to consult all the parties and groups and come up with one unified solution. The panel comprised of former Supreme Court judge FMI Kalifulla, spiritual guru and founder of Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravishankar and senior advocate Sriram Panchu.
Taking cognizance of the report, the bench ordered: “We have received the report submitted by Justice (Retd.) FMI Kalifulla, the Chairman of the Mediation Committee. We have perused the same. The mediation proceedings have not resulted in any final settlement. We, therefore, have to proceed with the hearing of the cases/appeals, which will commenceon and from 6.8.2019 (Tuesday). The hearing will be on day to-day basis until the arguments are concluded.”
Fourteen appeals have been filed in the apex court against the 2010 Allahabad High Court judgment, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77-acre land in Ayodhya be partitioned equally among the three parties — the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.
