The Ayodhya dispute continues, with a new twist every other day; both inside and outside the courtroom. Muslim parties have filed their written submissions in the SC in the decades-old Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute and said that the verdict will have "consequences" for the future polity of the country.
New Delhi, Oct 21: The Ayodhya dispute continues, both inside and outside the courtrooms. And when one gets the hint that everything will be solved amicably, comes a twist in the tale. Now there is yet another twist in Ayodhya land dispute case. Muslim parties, including the UP Sunni Wakf Board, have filed their written submissions in the Supreme Court in the decades-old Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute at Ayodhya and said that the verdict will have "consequences" for the future polity of the country.
The Muslim parties, which had filed the notes in sealed covers to the five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, later issued a statement for the common public.
"The Muslim party contestants before this Hon'ble Court wish to state that: the decision by this Hon'ble Court, whichever way it goes, will impact future generations. It will also have consequences for the polity of this country," the note prepared by senior lawyer Rajeev Dhavan, appearing for the Muslim parties, said.
It said that "this court's decision may impact the minds of millions who are citizens of this country and who believe in constitutional values embraced by all when India was declared a republic on January 26, 1950."
It said since the judgement will have far-reaching implications, it is for the court to consider the consequences of its historic judgment by moulding the relief in a fashion that will reflect the constitutional values that this great nation espouses.
"We hope that the Court, in moulding the relief, upholds our multi-religious and multicultural values in resolving the issues confronting it. Moulding the relief is the responsibility of this Court, which itself is the sentinel of our Constitution. When moulding the relief, this Court must also consider how future generations will view this verdict," it said.
