The Supreme Court will commence on February 8, 2018 its hearing on a batch of petitions challenging a 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict on the Ayodhya title suit that had divided the disputed Babri Masjid site between the Nirmohi Akhara, Lord Ram deity and the Sunni Waqf board.
A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice S Abdul Nazeer directed that all the advocates on record will work in harmony and ensure that all documents are filed, if not already filed.
The Babri Masjid is said to have been built by Mughal emperor Babur in Ayodhya in 1528. However, Hindus have claimed that there was originally a Ram temple which was demolished to construct the mosque.
The high court had then ruled a three-way division of the disputed 2.77 acre area at Ayodhya among the parties—the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and the Lord Ram Lalla.
