Supreme Court defers Ayodhya case again

In a 60 second hearing the Supreme Court of India had differed the Ayodhya matter to 10th January.

Today, the matter was listed before a bench comprising Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justice SK Kaul. It came up for hearing around 10.30 am. The hearing, which continued for 60 seconds, did not see any arguments from either side.

Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice S K Kaul said —

“Further orders will be passed by an appropriate bench on January 10 for fixing the date of hearing the matter”

On October 29th 2018 the fixed the matter in the first week of January before an “appropriate bench”, which will decide the schedule of hearing.

Further the supreme court refused on September 27th to constitute a 5 judge to hear the Ayodhya issue.

Recently the Prime Minister made it clear that the Government of India would intervene only once the Supreme Court of India pronounces its verdict. This statement speaks against the voice of the PM’s parent organisation RSS and other saffron groups.

The  Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has used the “Ram Temple” and “Ayodhya” dispute to garner votes in the past, this time around too in 2019 the scenes may be no different.
