Peace Party To File Curative Petition Against SC's Ayodhya Land Dispute Verdict Tomorrow

Peace Party to file a curative petition in the Supreme Court tomorrow (January 21, 2020) regarding the decision in Ayodhya land dispute case. Supreme Court had already dismissed 18 review petitions in this case previously.

The Supreme Court has closed the doors on any further review petitions on the Ayodhya land dispute case. A five-judge bench had rejected a batch of petitions seeking review of the November 9, 2019 Ayodhya land dispute verdict, which then cleared the way for construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site. This almost seals the verdict as the petitioners that have none but one option now. Only other option - Curative petition - which requires the petitioner to point out a legal error in the judgment

SC bench led by former Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi had allotted the dispute site to Ram Janmabhoomi, while directing the government to allot an alternate 5-acres land within Ayodhya to Sunni Waqf Board to build a mosque.

SC unanimously ordered setting up of a trust by the government that would eventually pave the way for construction of a temple in Ayodhya at the disputed site where a 16th century Babri Masjid was razed by a Hindu mob on December 6, 1992.

As per the court order, the Central government has to formulate a scheme under Ayodhya Act, 1993 within a period of 3 months and set up a trust and hand over the disputed site to it for construction of temple at the site. 

Scheme is to be framed by Center to make provisions for working of trust including the construction of the temple and other matters, the court said in its judgment.

The court dismissed the appeal of the Shia Waqf Board holding that the land belongs to the Government as per revenue records. Fourteen appeals were filed in the Apex Court against the 2010 Allahabad High Court judgment, delivered in four civil suits. It said the 2.77-acre land in Ayodhya be partitioned equally among the three parties - the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.
