Ayodhya Hearing Deferred Again

The Supreme Court of India again adjourned the Ayodhya case today after the exit of one of the five judges in the constitution bench. Justice UU Lalit quit from the 5 judge bench saying he had been a lawyer in a related case.

The Supreme Court will hear the Ram Mandir case on the 29th of January. The bench is led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, who will then decide on a schedule and the frequency of hearings in the case.

Member of the ruling BJP and right wing leaders want the government of India to pass an ordinance on the matter.

However in an interview to media outlet ANI, Prime Minister Modi made it clear that the decision on passing an executive order on the Ram temple issue cannot be made unless the judicial process is over.

This is a long-standing dispute running in the courts of India, since the year 1859. It must be put to a day to day hearing to sought the matter once and for all.
