Rajeev Dhavan: Let’s agree Rama was born in Ayodhya, but…

Advocate for the Muslim side in the Ayodhya dispute Rajeev Dhavan said in the Supreme Court today that the Ram Janmabhoomi movement was a conspiracy of obfuscation

New Delhi: The hearing of the Ram Janmabhoomi land dispute continued for the 29th day today. Appearing before the Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court, advocate for the Muslim side, Rajeev Dhawan said that there was no doubt that Lord Rama should be respected, but in a country like India, Allah is respected, too. He said that “we believe” that Lord Rama was born there. This argument of the Muslim side is being interpreted in various ways.

The Muslim side is now making its arguments in the Ayodhya land dispute case. Earlier, the Hindu side had presented its arguments, which Sirf News covered, too.

Mandir issue may settle in favour of Hindus: Amitabh Sinha

Advocate on the Muslim side Rajeev Dhawan said on 23 September, “We assume that Lord Rama was born there; Nirmohi Akhara used to worship Rama on the platform. But there was a mosque inside and namaz continued to be offered there. Now the Hindu side wants only a temple there. There is no doubt that Lord Rama should be respected, but Allah is respected too in a great country like India. The foundation of our India is laid on this.”

Rajeev Dhavan’s conspiracy theory

During the hearing held earlier, Rajeev Dhawan said in favour of Muslims that the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas was formed in 1985. Then, he said, as a part of a thoughtful strategy, a movement was started through karsevaks (religious volunteers). It led to the demolition of the Babri structure in 1992.

This, Rajeev Dhavan said, was a “planned conspiracy” to deflect public attention from the truth. Earlier, on the seventh day of the hearing, the lawyer of Ramlalla Virajman had claimed that the place where the mosque was built had a large structure of a temple underneath.

The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) report clearly shows that there was a huge temple below, the lawyer on the Hindu side said. Many pillars had been found in it dating back to 200 years BC.

Hearing lasts for over an hour

The court had last week asked all the parties to the dispute to try to complete the hearing by 18 October. This was the 28th day of daily hearing in the case. Until 18 October, the Supreme Court has 14 working days left.

Hereon, the duration of hearing has been extended by an hour every day. So, it is expected that by 18 October, the hearing will be completed. CJI Ranjan Gogoi had said last week that, thereafter, the judges would need about four weeks to write the verdict.

In the meantime, since yesterday, social media has erupted with jokes on the way the judiciary is handling the case.
