SC Refuses Urgent Hearing Of Plea Seeking Stay On Film 'Ram Ki Janmabhoomi'

By LawStreet News Network      28 March, 2019 12:00 AM      0 Comments

The Supreme Court today (March 28, 2019) refused a plea for the early listing of a petition seeking a stay on the release of the film ‘Ram Ki Janmabhoomi’.

A Bench comprising of Justices S.A. Bobde and S. Abdul Nazeer passed the order on a plea mentioned by advocate Lily Thomas claiming that the release of the film could impact the ongoing mediation proceedings in the Ayodhya land dispute case and thus the release of the film should be stayed till the mediation is over.

The court, however, refused, saying that there is no connection between the mediation proceedings and the release of the film. The court listed the matter after two weeks.

The film 'Ram Ki Janmabhoomi', directed by Sanoj Mishra is scheduled to hit the screens across the country on March 29, 2019.

The film revolves around the controversial issue of Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid dispute, as well as topics such as Triple Talaq and Nikah Halala. On February 26, 2019, the Supreme Court Constitution Bench had suggested mediation to resolve the Ayodhya land dispute and thereafter, on March 8, 2019, the apex court nominated a panel to act as mediators to try and resolve the dispute amicably.
