Shia Waqf Board said that Babri Masjid was Shia property. We want to resolve this dispute in a peaceful manner. In the affidavit given to the Supreme Court, the Shia Waqf Board has said that the mosque should be built in a Muslim-dominated area, which is at a fair distance from the place of Shriram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya. The Shia Waqf Board has also asked for some time from the Supreme Court, in which they could constitute a committee to settle the case of Shriram Janmabhoomi.
The hearing of the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute in Ayodhya from 11th August will be heard in the Supreme Court. The parties related to this case have challenged the Allahabad High Court’s decision. After seven years, the Supreme Court is going to hear the case. According to the notice issued by the Additional Registrar of the Supreme Court, this matter will be heard before a three-member special bench after noon on August 11. In this case, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy had in the past asked the hearing before the bench headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar, while referring to the matter. On which the Chief Justice had said that they will make this decision soon. And now on 11th August this case will be heard.
It is worth mentioning that the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court had ordered the division of the 2.77 acres of the disputed site in an equal proportion between Sunni Waqf Board, Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lala in 2010. A few months ago, the Supreme Court had asked the case to explore the possibility of finding a solution outside the court. Attempts were made by the parties on this issue, but the solution could not be solved. So, the Supreme Court has to settle the dispute based on merit.
