Ayodhya: Hindus have unfettered right to pray there

Lawyers for the Ayodhya case, over the past 10 days of arguments, have been contending that the disputed Ramjanmabhoomi could not have been partitioned as it is the diety itself


- Advertisment -

New Delhi: One of the appellants in the Babri Masjid-Ayodhya case, Gopal Singh Visharad said that the Hindus have an unfettered right to worship at the holy site where Lord Ram is believed to have taken birth.

Senior Advocate Ranjit Kumar, appearing before a Constitution Bench for Visharad, which was led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, claimed that affidavits were there from the Muslim side stating demolition of a temple to build the Babri Masjid in the 16th century.

Despite the construction of the mosque at the Ramjanmabhoomi, Kumar said the faith of the Hindus still survived. Although no one has put to question or challenged the Hindu parties of the Ayodhya case have been urged by the court to not delve further on the aspect of faith but to focus on their submissions and to present evidence that this was the exact place where Lord Ram was born.

The court asked Kumar if the people who gave affidavits vouching for the demolition of a temple for the mosque were subject to cross-examination, to which Kumar’s reply was negative. He also added that nobody has contradicted their statement so far. Lawyers for the Ayodhya case, over the past 10 days of arguments, have been contending that the disputed Ramjanmabhoomi could not have been partitioned as it is the diety itself.

The fact that if people were already worshipping the Ramjanmabhoomi and there was once a temple there, then nobody could possibly claim ownership or possession, was pointed out by Senior Advocate CS Vaidynathan.

On Wednesday, Vaidyanathan had said that the Ayodhya deity was a perpetual minor and such a property of a minor cannot be alienated, dealt with or sold. The Allahabad High Court’s verdict of September 2010 which stated that the property of the minor Ayodhya deity could be handed over to others, was also questioned by Vaidyanathan.
