29 October 2018 Current Events Babri Masjid dispute: Supreme Court to begin hearing petitions from today

A three-judges bench, headed by the Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi will be hearing the case under "direction matters". The matter in hand will be the Allahabad High Court's 2010 verdict that divided the disputed site into three parts between communities. On September 27 this year, the apex court had rejected the plea to have a larger bench to reconsider the 1994 judgement that had stated that "a mosque is not an essential part of the practice of the religion of Islam".

Meanwhile, the CM of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath has urged the Supreme Court to give a verdict on the matter soon. "If Supreme Court can give a judgement on Sabarimala, it should also give its order in Ram temple case. I request the court to do so."
