Supreme Court dismisses all reconsideration petitions on Ayodhya, 5-judge bench gives verdict

New Delhi: In the Ayodhya case, the Supreme Court has dismissed all the reconsideration petitions. Chief Justice SA Bobde, Justice Ashok Bhushan, Justice DY Chandrachud, Justice S Abdul Nazeer and Justice Sanjeev Khanna ruled on it. After consideration, 5 judges have found that the petitions are not fit for hearing in open court. No such thing has been said in these, which was not answered in the November 9 decision.

The apex court, in its judgment pronounced on November 9, had said to give the disputed land for the construction of Ram temple. Along with this, the court had issued a directive to Muslim parties to give five acres of land for construction of mosque at some other place in Ayodhya. The hearing in the Supreme Court Chamber began at 1:40 pm. A total of 18 reconsideration petitions have been filed in the apex court in connection with the November 9 verdict. Most of these petitions are from Muslim parties dissatisfied with the verdict.

Nirmohi Akhada also filed a review petition in SC
Nirmohi Akhara has also filed a petition in the Supreme Court in the Ayodhya case. It has been said in the petition that the conclusions of the judgment regarding the rights, possession and limitation of the Nirmohi Arena are not correct, the court should reconsider the decision. It may be known that a five-judge bench headed by the then Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi unanimously gave the entire 2.77 acres of disputed land to Ram Lala. The apex court also directed the Center to allot a plot of 5 acres to the UP Central Sunni Waqf Board for the construction of a mosque in Ayodhya.

The reconsideration petition states, 'Since 1857 the idols were in the outer courtyard. She was never in the interior except forcibly kept here on 22-23 December 1949 through criminal encroachment. The court accepted that the idols were illegally kept in the inner courtyard and yet orders were given against the Muslim side.

The reconsideration petition stated, "Recognizing that the railing made by the British for the purpose of ownership is inconsistent and it is completely wrong to assume that Hindus can claim possession or ownership." The reconsideration petition also highlighted the extent of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) report in the case. The petition said, 'The conclusion of ASI was that it cannot be proved that a mosque was built by breaking a temple. On the basis of the possibilities, no conclusion can be drawn that Muslims did not offer Namaz there between 1528-1856, because during this time this place was under the rule of the Mughals and later the Nawabs.

The first reconsideration petition was filed by Maulana Syed Ashad Rashidi on 2 December. Rashidi is the original plaintiff M Siddiq and the president of Uttar Pradesh Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind.
