Ayodhya Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid Case Hearing HIGHLIGHTS: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) international president Vishnu Sadashiv Kokje Wednesday expressed hope for a “favourable” verdict in the Ayodhya land dispute case, hours after the Supreme Court reserved its verdict in the case. “The pleas in favour of ownership of Hindus on the disputed land in Ayodhya were presented strongly in the supreme court. We are hoping for a good result. We hope the SC will deliver a very clear verdict in this case,” he told PTI.
The Supreme Court Wednesday concluded the hearing of Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case and has reserved the judgment. A five-judge Constitution bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi also asked the parties to file written submissions on the moulding of relief in three days.
Earlier in the day, the Court Room 1 witnessed high drama as senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, representing the Sunni Waqf Board, tore papers handed to him by the All India Hindu Maha Sabha’s counsel. The papers apparently contained a map illustrating the birthplace of Lord Ram. Dhavan later said the CJI Ranjan Gogoi allowed him to tear the papers. The CJI sarcastically said he indeed had allowed Dhavan to tear the pages.
