Babri Masjid dispute:Islam allows mosque to be shifted:Major League Baseball member

The Shia Central Waqf Board of Uttar Pradesh told the Supreme Court in August that it is agreeable to building a mosque in a Muslim-dominated area, at a reasonable distance from the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid site. The next hearing on the matter was posted for March 14. We are treating it as a land dispute. The Apex court also said that it will not hear the case on a day-to-day-basis as 700 poor litigants are waiting for justice.

The Supreme Court clarified on Thursday that it would treat the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi case as merely a "land issue".

The Ayodhya dispute reached the Supreme Court after a batch of 14 petitions challenged the 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict that had divided the 2.5 acres disputed Ayodhya site equally between the Nirmohi Akhara, Lord Ram Deity and Sunni Waqf Board.

The bench also refused to entertain applications for interventions, observing that the five suits were capable of handling the case.

The petitions before the judges relate to the 2010 verdict of the Allahabad High Court in the title suit that had been pending for almost six decades. But the court found that despite its December 5 order, the pleadings were not yet complete to allow the case to be ripe for commencement of hearing.

The apex court has commenced its final hearings on the Ayodhya dispute; also, there were heated exchanges between two senior advocates appearing for different parties after one of them suggested they should exchange the synopsis of their likely arguments.

He also said the government should pass a legislation to pave the way for construction of the temple.

The top court said the excerpts of vernacular books, which have been relied upon in the case, be translated in English and be filed within two weeks from Thursday.

The court, however said there are vast majority of Indians, voiceless and unheard who have been mute victims to the festering sores and violence caused by this dispute.

"Devoting one-and-half hour every day will help in disposing of these cases", the bench said.
