Babri row continues to haunt Indians, SC takes charge
Meanwhile, another prominent group of the Babri masjid controversy - Sunni Waqf Board raised their voice against the petition filed by the Akhil Bhartiya Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Punarudhar Samiti saying that Punarudhar Samiti was not a party before the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court that had pronounced the Ayodhya verdict Sep 30, 2010.
However, the apex court stated that it will raise the argument in the court when the hearing of the latest petition will be kicked off. The apex earlier in May 2011 criticised the Allahabad High Court's decision saying the verdict as "strange and surprising".
The high court, during its verdict on Sep 30, 2010, had directed that the disputed Babri masjid site be divided in three parts between the three contending parties - Sunni Waqf Board, Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Janmabhumi samiti.
