Ayodhya: Nirmohi Akhara says it is on Hindu side which appears on historical records
New Delhi, Aug 23 (UNI) Nirmohi Akhara on Friday contended in the Supreme Court that it is the only one on Hindu side whose name appears in historical records at the disputed site at Ayodhya, the centre of a land title dispute that has riveted the nation.
Sushil Kumar Jain, senior counsel, appearing for Nirmohi Akhara, made the submission before a five-judge Constitution bench, headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi.
What happened in Ayodhya and why the case is significant?
In 1992, the disputed Babri Masjid structure was brought down by several right-wing volunteers who believe Lord Ram was born on that site.
On September 27, the apex court had refused to re-visit its 1994 verdict which had stated mosque was not important for Muslims to offer prayers, paving way for the hearing of the Ayodhya case.
PM Modi wants to wait for verdict
Though several right-wing organisations had demanded an ordinance be passed by the central government to construct Ram temple in Ayodhya, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he will wait for the verdict to come.
Citing the government took action over triple talaq only after the top court verdict, Modi, in an interview with ANI, had said: "I urge Congress people to allow the court proceedings to take place over the Ram temple case in the Supreme court. After the verdict comes, the government will initiate its action."
