SC reserves order on Ayodhya land dispute case mediation


Agencies, New Delhi Supreme Court on Wednesday reserved it's order on whether the Ayodhya land dispute case be referred to court-monitored mediation or not to resolve the entire issue. A five-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi and comprising Justices DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan, SA Bobde and SA Abdul Nazeer, reserved its order after hearing from Nirmohi Akhara, Hindu Mahasabha, Muslim parties and many others. Hindu parties and Nirmohi Akhara are opposed to the process of mediation, while the Muslim parties are supporting it. The top court also said if the parties want, they can suggest probable names for mediators. The court heard a batch of petitions challenging the 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict trifurcating the disputed site at Ayodhya into three parts. Earlier on the last week of September 2018, the Supreme Court bench, headed by the then Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, had dismissed a plea to refer the issue of mosques being essential for practicing Islam to a larger bench.
